    Those brackets will work fine - I use same (maybe a different manufacturer) for my Sierra 2's and HTM200's. Just make sure to clamp the speaker such that the rear port is at least the same distance from the wall as the port diameter.. mine are about 1.5x.

    The wall mounts with the bottom clamps are what Dave has recommended for years for the S1s and S2s. If you have a sub and are crossing over at something higher than the port tune frequency, distance from the wall isn’t really much of an issue. I have a pair wall mounted this way and crossed over at 60Hz and there’s no problem.

    I found this bracket which seems like it would work from a size/weight perspective, but will obviously mean the speakers are much closer to the wall than is generally advised. Is this the kind of thing that's a real no-no and would cause real sound quality issues or is it more like 'not ideal but you can get away with it if you have to'?
    I ordered a pair of KEF Q150s for surround speakers about a couple years ago and purchased the flush wall mounts made by KEF. When I held these speakers up on the wall to see what they would look like I knew it was a bad idea. It looks odd having such a large bookshelf speaker protruding from the wall. My wife had even stronger feelings about it, and I ended up sending them and 3 KEF Q350 back.

    I ended up picking up some Ascend CMT 340s up front on speaker stands and HTM 200s to wall mount instead. My wife and I are much happier with how they look. I think the HTM 200s, or Lunas or Duos would look fine wall mounted.

    I am happy to report that the air-shipment of LX woofers and tweeters actually arrived sooner than expected (that almost never happens these days!)

    We have a huge backorder to fulfill, but Sierra LX pairs and centers are back in full production and shipping will resume tomorrow.

    Thanks so much for everyone's patience!

    Have you been able to figure a price on LX upgrade kits?

    Many LX pairs and centers being assembled and prepared for testing, cleaning and then shipping. This is just the first of may production runs, but we expect to fulfill all backorders by the middle of next week.

    Are the Klippel NFS measurements still available to purchase when ordering the LX, or was that only offered for the initial batch? I didn't need them for myself but I was just curious. I didn't see any option to include the measurements when ordering on the new website.

    My apologies, looks like this option didn't transfer over to the new site. It is now on the new site. Thanks so much for the head's up!

    LX Kit Pricing:

    DIY LX Upgrade Kits will be listed for $450 each + shipping. One "kit" per speaker.

    Each LX Upgrade Kit will consist of:

    (1) LX Woofer
    (1) LX Tweeter
    (1) LX Crossover
    (1) Tweeter Gasket
    (1) LX Product Label
    (1) Instruction sheet

    I do not think we will be able to offer kits to the general public just yet, but for those on Dina's LX upgrade list, you will be sent an email with a link to place the order. We must first get through our large backorder of LX pairs and centers, and then our priority will shift towards the kits.

    If you want an LX Upgrade Kit and you aren't yet on Dina's list - please send us an email or even better, just give us a call.

    Thanks!!
