    Default Monitor 40 on newegg and AM40 speaker brackets question

    Hi all, To complete my setup (1 CS2, 2 M70s, Pioneer VSX-9040TXH), I ordered Monitor 40 ($115 a pair on sale this week) today.

    I have a question on the RM40 brackets:

    http://www.bracketsandstands.com/AM4...ETS_p/am40.htm

    which seem to be fitting M40s, both dimension-wise and weight wise:

    AM40:

    5.5 to 11 wide, up to 13 deep and a maximum of 50 lbs

    M40:

    http://www.polkaudio.com/homeaudio/s...ent/monitor40/
    15-3/4" H x 7" W x 12" D
    16 lbs

    They do not require any holes to be drilled in the speakers, which is good, since the M40 does not have the provision.

    What I am worried about is the possibility that the speaker might "fall down" - in the attached picture to the AM40 link above, the brackets are on the side, and the speaker is going to be facing down toward the listening position, with a tilt. I am worried it might slide off and fall on someones head. Am I being paraonid? Does any one have any experience with AM40 or similar mounts?

    Thanks,
    Mathru

    I bought the same brackets and speakers last week, I did a lot of reading and the AM40's will work just fine for you. I did put my AM40's on ebay since the wife told me to get stands for the 40's and not mount them after all.

    I forgot to mention I did also read someone using a zip tie to help them up also, not sure if they attached it to the speaker wire though.

    Thanks ScudDawg. It looks like the AM40 comes with 5 screws.

    "If desired, screws may be used with the five security screw holes on each bracket to attach the brackets to the speaker sides or bottom."

    The AM40 manual is here: http://pinpointmounts.com/resources/AM40_manual.pdf

    Is it ok if I drill holes in in M40 on the bottom and back: how far deep can I go without doing any functional damage?
