Two options:

1) Use two universal swivel brackets with 1/4-20 studs for mounting, attached to the two inserts on the back of the SuperSat 50s. Adjust to desired angle, or,

2) Place rubber bumpers (thickness will determine angle) along one side of the back edge, on a SuperSat 50 at least 4-6, and attach the speaker to the wall using the keyholes. This will require a longer section of screw protruding from the wall to reach the keyhole of the angled speakers.

What bracket do you recommend? I like the idea of the rubber bumper which method do you prefer?

Have seem many different ones in use, I think Monoprice had the least expensive ones that worked.

No preference. The swivel bracket approach is harder to install and more costly, but you can create virtually any angle depending on how far off the wall you want to go. Last install I saw with one used them for the center speaker (50C) above a 110" projection screen so it could be pulled out from the wall and angled down at the listening area. Looked cool and worked great.

The on-wall with bumpers is a lot sleeker look if they are highly visible (like for fronts) or if you want to put your surrounds at ear level (for use in an Atmos setup) as opposed to up high.

I would recommend the universal bracket style. The dispersion is really wide on those speakers. I havent found the need to turn my supersat 3s for surround effects.
