One of these brackets was purchased to mount a center speakers above a TV. Bose included all the hardware to mount this easily adjustable bracket including plastic anchors for masonry walls, screws for wood stud mounting and "butterfly" toggle mounting on gypsum (drywall) walls when hitting the stud isn't possible. A small metal, rectangular backing plate with four mounting holes is provided to mount the small, but heavy speakers. The bracket, like Bose speakers, is high quality and includes a couple of adapter pieces to accommodate vertical or horizontal speakers. There is also provided an adapter piece that snaps onto the back of the speaker. This pieces allows you to fully mount the metal plate and set the vertical and horizontal angle of the bracket without you needing to support the weight of the speaker while tightening the single adjustment screw. Before mounting the speaker, a small decorative piece covers the backing plate. There is even thought given to routing the speaker wire through the bracket and into the speaker with small notches and a hole through which you use the Bose style speaker-wire termination plug. Picture instructions are provided for the numerous styles of vertical and horizontal Bose center, front and surround speakers speakers. Of note, the butterfly toggles provided require 1/2" holes. I would guess most home owners/DIY folks have 3/8" cordless or corded drills. This makes it necessary to carefully enlarge the holes in the gypsum just the tiniest bit to insert the toggles. However the screws provided with the toggle are long enough to adjust for 1/2" or 5/8" thick gypsum and perhaps even thicker plaster installations. Keep in mind this bracket is intended for use with Bose speakers and cannot, or at least not easily, be used with non Bose speakers. When complete, the speaker mount is professional looking, matching Bose speakers.

I have these in use for my surround system. While on the whole, the brackets seem fine, there is a big design or production flaw. The part that actually clamps onto the post on the speaker should be made of steel. I have had multiple speakers now that have fallen off the wall after I went to adjust them. This one part breaks easily I guess. These are not light speakers, so more work should be done to design the part for strength.

Need to replace my Bise bracket and this was it. It was delivered quickly and installation was easy!
from Highland park, IL
Wonderful product, especially when u have the ABT team install them!
Can these brackets be used with standard electrical junction boxes in the United States? is there a diagram of the backing plate?
I bought this bracket to install, but there is no instruction included. TO install the speakers, do I have to screw directly to the speaker itself?? Please send me the instruction.

Not a good fit for Acoustimass 6 series 5 speakers
I got these brackets on 12-6-15. Bose in their attempt to use one set of brackets for 5 different speaker lines, has failed. Due to the way the speaker cable plugs into the back of the Series 5 speakers, the cable gets crimped severely by the metal mounting plate. I am worried that over time the wire will break. There is also a shorter screw (provided) that you need to use, to properly mount the bracket, but the directions do not make that clear. It caused me undo frustration until realized what needed to be done, and switched the screws out.
no online installation instructions
A contractor installed on my ceiling. I want to move it but can't figure out how to remove it and don't want to break it. Installation instructions should be on line with pictures.

Easy to install given it comes with a template for the screws prior to drilling and mounting.
