Metal Speaker Clamps
« on: March 07, 2011, 04:33:40 pm »

Where can I find some good speaker mounting clamps?

If space isn't an issue does a clamp have advantage(s) over the T-Nut/screw combination when mounting a woofer into a cabinet?

I have seen the ones that look like an L but I can't seem to locate a heavy duty clamp to suit the purpose. I would like to find a heavy metal clamp similar to the image marked clampyes.jpg

Never seen the clamp you are describing in metal, but here's the clamp you've shown in plastic:

i have a few back-line cabinets that still use the L shaped metal clamps: 2 ev bd150m
modified with "monster" rcf 15" woofers and 2" drivers. i was skeptical at first but having inspected the clamps after years of abuse, they are still holding tight and do not show any signs of problems. there are only 4 per driver!

...found what I was looking for...

JBL MA15 Speaker mounting kit. Thanks for the input on the L shaped clamps too.

The main advantage the clamps offer is more rapid speaker removal and installation while leaving screw hardware in place, such as in studio monitors where the guest engineer blows them up frequently, and they have to be replaced between lines of coke.
They also allow using speakers with slightly different diameters or bolt hole patterns.

I would not use them unless for the above reasons, the offset mounting  is less secure than a screw through the speaker mounting hole.

Time is relative, perception varies between the cocaine snorting guest engineer and the studio tech, but a fast tech can usually replace the speakers faster than the guest engineer can reset all the low frequency EQ he maxed out compensating for the blown woofers.
