The K&Ms are still worth $56.  If you are patient, maybe they will show up again cheap.  The were something like $20 for over a year from Amazon direct.  I also have some 15 degree fixed K&Ms that I used toilet shims to change the angle.  The Toilet Shim idea was from Dick or Mac or someone else here.  Worked OK, but I prefer the variable tilt of the 19670s.

There is a Yorkville tilter - very basic, 15 degree tilt only and no adjustment but only $5. I'd like to find something in between $5 and $56…. I might get a couple of the cheapies and see how they work.

I got these:

K&M w/o the cam lock.

Actually will be using them in the field for the first time this Saturday in an old highly reverberant church sanctuary.  Going to use a laser pointer for some precise aiming. I'll try and remember to get some pics.

Perhaps K&M monitors the availability of the BT-12's and prices accordingly?

Yes, since the BT-12s are much more expensive.

I once had tilters at 15 degrees. Way too much for any normal use. The 7.5 degree tilt of the K12s is pretty much right on.

I would like BT-12s for my ZXa5s.

I have a pair of BT-12. I mostly use them with RCF TT-25A (15"+1.5", 33 kg). The BT swing movement doesn't seem to match the actual COG, so I don't tilt the boxes more than 6-8 degrees, especially when the box is on a pole over subwoofer. With smaller boxes like RCF 310A or Yamaha DSR112, I tilt them to 12 degrees if needed.

I use them almost always - tilting really helps when playing from choir lofts downwards, in a too live rooms or outdoors when the speakers are on a lift at 3 m.

They were quite pricey, but I am happy with them. The simpler version may work (I will most probably buy a pair for smaller speakers one day), but for bigger angles the speaker can trip over...

I find the EV strongarm mount works well for the ZXA5. Invert it and attach a K&M pole adaptor with 10mm bolt.

These are the ones at $56 that I was referring to - the ones with the cam lock are almost $100 each.
If the nicer ones were $56 - I'd grab them…

Darn….

That looks great Mike!  I had been looking at the strong arm for my ZXA5's but never thought about inverting them.  And here I was pricing out things to hang it from!

Hey mike, great idea. What is the part name/number from EV?

Send me a message with prices for both parts please.

Occasionally the ring-lock version (p/n 19674) will drop below $40 each.  There are browser plugins and websites that will allow you to set a price alert - set one up and be prepared to jump quickly when they do, as it never lasts long.
