Well Made Template Included. Makes Wall Mounting a Breeze.
on May 10, 2013
I have found the Sonos products to be top quality. They are my new favorite speaker products. No longer do I need to pre-wire houses for multi-room audio. The Sonos line of speakers eliminates that. All that is needed is A/C power.
The wall mount bracket is just as well made and packaged as the speakers are! Included is a full size hard cardboard template and mini level. The level was accurate when using 2 sides of it, but the 2 other sides were out. Since there were no orientation markings on it, I used my torpedo level instead. If you are going to use the included level just make sure to turn the level vial 180 degrees to verify the mount is level before drilling holes in the wall. Try rotating the level vial and using a different one of its four sides. Once you mark the screw holes thru the template onto the wall, it is easy to secure the wall mount. It is made of a high quality metal with a powder coated finish. It has 2 knobs on either side of it that stick out and will be used to secure the speaker via the keyhole slots on the back of the speaker.
With the speaker oriented with the Sonos logo on the bottom of the speaker, I needed the cables (power & Fiber Optic) to go up to the flat panel TV. The way the speaker mounts does allow the cables to fit behind the speaker and on top of the mount. So don't worry if your speaker wires need to go up the wall or down, they will fit between the speaker and this mount without any problems.
5 star quality product all the way. Worth the price.
