Overview: The Pinpoint AM10/B Speaker Wall Brackets are designed for small to medium speakers up to 20 lbs with wooden or plastic cabinet backs. The AM10/B Speaker Wall Brackets allow you to tilt your speakers 18-degrees up/down and swivel them 180-degrees left/right once mounted. Once the desired angle is achieved, you can lock it in using each bracket's two locking wingnut/bolt assembly. The pair of speaker brackets are made from glass reinforced polymer and can be used indoors or outdoors.

The speaker brackets are designed to screw into the back of your speaker's wooden or plastic enclosure. The back of your speaker must measure 5.0" in height for the bracket to fit and a screw hole spacing of 4.0625" is needed to secure the four supplied self-tapping screws to your speaker. The brackets mount to your wall using eight supplied wood-screws. The screw hole spacing for the wall bracket is 5.0625" from the bracket's top screw hole to the bracket's bottom screw hole and 3.125" between the two inner screw holes. The set of speaker brackets also come supplied with eight plastic drywall anchors.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Product is as described and very complete. Instructions are clear and understandable. Installation was a snap. I used this kit to hang a rear set of Klisph surround speakers, after upgrading the older set I had. Would buy these again, if I had a need.
Pros:
Instructions are clear and understandable
Cons:
Couldn't find any.

Great mounts; awful hardware

Written By Matt M, Columbus, OH on Sunday, December 29, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The mounts are great and seem very sturdy. But I can't manage more than 3 stars because the mounting hardware is awful. 7 of 8 of the cheap plastic butterfly anchors broke. I almost lost $400 in L & R channels as a result. I've replaced them with 3/8" x 3" toggle bolts.
Pros:
Flexibility. Weight tolerance.
Cons:
Mounting hardware.

Good for Heavier Speakers

Written By Ari, Park City, UT on Saturday, May 05, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Speakers sound best when they have a solid foundation and these wall mounts are much better than most at giving a sturdy foundation. They are easy to install, although you will need to drill into the back of your speakers. The adjustment is nice because you can tilt the speakers down. If your speakers are wide it will limit the side to side adjustment. I've was able to mount a pair of Tanoy powered speakers for my surround speakers with no trouble. I would mount them on a stud FOR SURE. One very nice feature is you can install all the hardware then easily lift the speakers and drop them into place. No holding and screwing. It is also easy to remove the speakers if necessary, simply lift them up.
Pros:
Adjustable, easy to install, supports heavy speakers
Cons:
Must drill into back of speakers.

they do what they say they do

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had quite a difficult time (surprisingly) finding wall mounts for my speakers, bose 201's. I needed the mounts to hold more than what the average mount could hold plus I need them to be maneuverable on both axis. of course they had to be very sturdy. they were simple to install, they do exactly what I need them to do and they haven't budged on iota. they're really a great little product
Pros:
easy to install, rotate up & down and side to side, very sturdy.
Cons:
none

Good wall-mount brackets

Written By Chris, Hartford, CT on Wednesday, January 19, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I needed brackets that could handle speakers somewhat larger and heavier than
typical "satellite" type speakers. Each bracket comes in four pieces: two
separate hinges to screw into the wall and two semi-circular arms that are
connected by bolts. One arm fits over the hinges, and the other holds the
speaker. The hinges allow the arms to swing side-to-side, and the arms can be
tilted by adjusting the bolts. They came disassembled, and I could not believe
how small the box was; also, they're not metal but rather plastic. However,
they seem sturdy enough, and were fairly easy to assemble and mount on the wall.
As others have noted, you do have to drill into your speakers to mount them to
the brackets; I had to drill slightly off-center line to fit them around the
speaker wire plugs, but it worked okay. I mounted two old JBL 500s, that each
weigh about 8 pounds. I used plastic drywall anchors: the ones provided were a
bit skimpy, but you can find better ones for pennies at any hardware store
(bring one of the wall screws with you to size them). The drywall anchors were
very convenient for my location requirements, but for speakers that weigh a bit
more, you might want to find wall studs. Overall, these are good brackets:
they're sturdy, provide good flexibility for mounting locations and positions,
and are reasonably priced.

Pinpoint AM10

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They really looked bigger in the photo, I was shocked though to see them easily hold up
my 15 lb polk speakers. To get the angle I wanted though I had to mount them sorta on
one side of the speaker instead on the center. I would recommend to anyone with heavy
speakers.

I used these brackets to hang a pair of Polk R10 speakers (~15 lbs each). These
brackets have proven to be rock solid - mounting angle has not moved for two years.
Also, with their two-part construction, removing the speakers for cleaning is effortless,
requiring no tools and allowing me to maintain the mounting angle. Note that it is worth
finding a stud to mount these brackets when supporting heavy loads.

Work great!

Written By Tom, Franklin, TN on Tuesday, January 27, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I needed brackets to mount a pair of 20 lb Polk Monitor 40's horizontally as
my side surrounds. They each weigh about 20 lb. The brackets work great
but I had to use metal toggle bolts for the top wall mount as plastic, screw-
in anchors were close to pulling out of the drywall with the weight. I've
bought a second set of brackets for a set of Polk R150's which I'm using for
rear speakers.

Great! (and Cheap)

Written By David, Dallas, TX on Monday, September 08, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I was looking for some way to hang my Pioneer S-H152B-K 2-way bookshelf (surround) speakers; they're about 11 lbs. each, and most of the smaller mounts will only support about 8 lbs. I wasn't really crazy about the idea of drilling into my beloved speakers, but after the first hole, it wasn't that bad. The mounts are light, but sturdy. They do come with the wall anchors, though the instructions seem to say they're not included. I needed them as the speakers' locations were not over wall studs. Once mounted, the speakers seem to be quite sturdy, and adjustment is very easy.
