Looking to save space and help spruce up the look of that plasma on your bare wall? Chief Manufacturing’s new CM4S57 Automated Speaker Adapter for flat-panel TVs is an accessory that replaces the need for speaker stands while aiding the surround-sound experience, and even hides wires so your walls aren’t cluttered up.

This newest addition to the Cinematic Series of automated mounts integrates with a Chief flat panel mount. The CM4 extends speakers out from the flat panel up to 9 feet with adjustable set points to control travel, and returns speakers snug to the flat panel when in home position.

The ultra-quiet, chain-driven technology provides smooth movements, and is operated via IR remote, the company says. The mount can support up to 240 pounds (108.9 kg) for the flat panel, speakers and other accessories, and 18 pounds (8.2 kg) per side speaker.

The CM4 is easy to install and fastens directly to 16-inch studs with all mounting hardware included. It includes all components for 120V or 230V operation. To order the speaker adapter with a universal flat screen interface, simply order the CM4S57U. A custom PSB interface bracket can be ordered separately if preferred at no additional cost.
