Elegant wall brackets

Well, they look nice out of the box.
But there are a couple of bad design issues. They are very expensive for what they are - unfortunately I couldn't find any alternative for this kind of bottom mount.
I'm using it with LSX II speakers, and it's very difficult to avoid tilting down the speakers. Had to really tighten the 2 side screws with a lot of force (as much as I could do) to keep the swivel from leaning forward. And even then there's a little play left with has the speaker lean down a little bit.
Since I have it also turned to the side, the lean is very visible.
The photo shows how it leans to the right despite making it as straight as possible.
Second - if you want to turn it both to the side and down, it now looks crooked as the design swivel down is only straight forward, it doesn't rotate with the speaker.
Lastly - they keep the speakers further from the wall than necessary - see pic.
For the money, I'm disappointed in these. The "instructions" are printed on the box and there is one critical item that seems to be overlooked regarding steps for angling the bracket plate. There are two very tiny screws that seem to govern the plate angle (in addition to the screws on each side of the plate. Furthermore, I installed these on a sloped ceiling and desired to maintain the bottom plate level with the arm. However, the plate slowly began tiling under the weight of the speaker to its maximum of 40 degrees. It required Herculean strength to tighten the screws to maintain their angle and I'm not convinced they will hold. Also there seemed to be defects in two of the Allen fittings. I was afraid I was going to strip the included Allen wrenches. These are fantastic speakers and deserve better.
Yes they are very expensive vs a pair of generic wall mounts. But I could not find a pair of wall mounts that would securely & confidently support these speaker from the base. Given the time I spent searching for alternatives, I finally pulled the plug on these once they were announced. Packaging & instructions are great. The construction is great. Very clean design - the mounts look great and work great. These are fantastic mounts. Specific to these speakers? Well, they are certainly specific to bottom mount speakers, which seem to be rare. So, yeah, they may not work on others. But I love the LSX so they work for me! Highly recommended.
