Which wall speaker mounts to get and how to install?

I'm not sure what wall/ceiling speaker mounts are appropriate for my system or how to install them in the type of walls I have. Suggestions welcome!

I have a 5.1 speaker system
where, in my old flat, I had been able to put the speakers themselves on top of bookshelves and other high surfaces. Now I'm in a place where that isn't going to work. Unfortunately, I seem to have lost the simple steel mounting brackets they came with as seen in the picture.
Each speaker is about 3 lbs, and they each have a keyhole-looking hook/hole in the back. I have plaster walls (building is ca. 1931), distance from floor to ceiling is about 9 ft., and there is that old school moulding wrapped around the perimeter of the room about a foot down from the ceiling proper, which I take it was to hide various wires back in the day.
So if anyone handy can direct me to A) a proper decent 5-speaker mount set under $50 if such a unicorn exists, and B) how to install them into these walls, I'd be much obliged. I do have one of those stud-finder doohickeys, so I'm sorted there! Thanks.
