Your choice of mount is often dictated by the type of speaker you use, and this is certainly true of the Sonos Arc soundbar attachment. This new addition to our ranking only works with this specific -albeit popular- model, and shouldn't be bought if you do not own the Arc speaker. When it is in use, however, the soundbar detects the mount and adjusts its bass frequencies to suit your architecture, making this a unique and functional option that is certainly worthy of inclusion here.
Secondly, we added the Vogel's Universal, which, unlike the Sonos Arc, can be used with a wide variety of speakers, and are particularly well-suited to satellite and bookshelf models. Notable features include their smartly-hidden mounting hardware, cable management, and rugged construction, which is backed by a lifetime guarantee.

We chose both branded and non-branded units for this list, as well as budget-friendly and higher-end models. Just like with speaker stands, speaker mounts must be either versatile enough to accommodate a range of brands, or else perfectly suited to their intended use, such as the Sonos Wall and Bose UB-20 Series II.
For heavy-duty monitors, bookshelf speakers and PA systems in schools and churches, the On Stage Bracket and Pyle Home should fit the bill, while the VideoSecu Large and VideoSecu Universal are a good fit for less weighty satellite speakers.
The Mounting Dream MD5421 comes in two styles to cater to various needs when it comes to soundbars, and the Perlesmith Swivel are ideal for backyards, patios, and other outdoor areas. They can hold single, double, and four-hole configured speakers, as well as those with keyholes, however, some users reported that keyhole installation felt a little shaky without extra reinforcement. If that's a concern, then consider the Monoprice Low Profile, which arrives with an adaptor.
No matter the product you choose, be sure to follow installation instructions to a T and use the proper tools and hardware or have a professional do it if in doubt. Speakers, especially heavy ones, can cause serious injury if improperly affixed in high places.
