Our take on the Pinpoint AM21

by Dave Bar
Pinpoint

Securely mount your compact satellite speakers on your wall or ceiling with the Pinpoint AM21 bracket. This universal speaker mount is the lightweight version of Pinpoint's AM20 bracket, and has been designed for maximum versatility and compatibility with a wide range of smaller home theater speakers. Its ball-and-socket joint gives you a 90° pivot, and you can rotate the mounting arm a full 360° for added positioning flexibility.

The AM21 is perfect for folks who want to connect in-wall speaker cable to a wall-mounted speaker. It includes a metal mounting plate that can attach directly to a standard single-gang junction box. Just install a J-box where you'd like to mount your speaker, and you'll have a safe, clean way for your in-wall cable to exit your wall. You'll enjoy a clean, uncluttered appearance with no exposed wires.

Highlights:

  • for wall- or ceiling-mounted satellite speakers
  • weight capacity: 5 lbs.
  • can mount directly to single-gang J-box
  • rotates 360° and pivots 90°
  • attaches to speaker's keyhole slot or threaded inserts
  • mounting hardware for most speakers included
  • warranty: 5 years parts, 2 years labor
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Compatibility: The Pinpoint AM21 Universal Speaker Mount is constructed from steel and aluminum for durability and strength. The Pinpoint AM21 can be used as a wall or ceiling mount bracket for speakers up to 5 lbs. Its suitable for speakers with a key-hole slot, as well as speakers with a rear-mount or bottom-mount single threaded insert (M4, M5, M6, 1/4"-20). This mount comes with all the hardware needed to mount your speaker to both a solid surface (drywall/block), as well as single gang electrical box.

Installation: An included color matched adapter plate allows the AM21 to be mounted on a single gain electrical box, found in pre-wired locations in home theater rooms. The adapter plate adds a custom appearance for a professional looking installation. Plastic covers hide mounting hardware for a clean, professional appearance when not using the electrical plate adapter. The Pinpoint AM21's modular design allows your speaker to be attached to the bracket after installing it to the wall or ceiling, and offers adjustable tilt and swivel. A comprehensive hardware kit provides the most common screw sizes (M4, M5, M6, 1/4"-20) for attaching your speaker.

Adjustable: The AM21 can be rotated 360-degrees and tilts 90-degrees. Included mounting-arms allow the speaker to be positioned 2.75", 3.75", or 6" (standard mounting) and 2.15", 3.15", or 3.40" (electrical box mounting) from the wall or ceiling allowing for exact speaker placement and improved sound for home theater systems.

Work, but not great

Written By Max, Midwest on Monday, January 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These were about the only speaker mounts that I could find that were made to install with a standard square receptacle / light switch box. They work perfectly for that. There are two major issues. One: The tension on the radial arm that holds the speaker in position won't hold my speakers up without sagging. I bought these with a pair of Polk Audio Blackstone TL2's which are under the advertised weight limit for the speaker mounts, but they still sag. Luckily, that's not a big problem for me because they hang down from the ceiling so they actually droop down to just about the right angle for my room. Here's the biggest flaw: the posts that come with the mounts (there are two included, each a different length) are painted end to end such that there's paint on the threads that screw into the mounting arm. I found it IMPOSSIBLE to screw the arm onto the post without removing some of the paint with some steel wool. And even then I had to use some pliers (with a rubber pad in the mouth) to secure the post while I forced the post to screw into the arm. In doing this, I scratched the paint where I held it with the pliers. This is a horrible finish on what is otherwise a decent design.
Pros:
Works great with a standard receptacle box.
Cons:
Weight limitation on the mounting arm and very difficult to put together due to paint on the post threads

Nice Surprise

Written By Jerry, Hollidaysburg, PA on Friday, September 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used these to mount to an existing duplex wall box. Speaker wires through the box and bracket hole. Perfect fit to the duplex box. I mounted a pair of Polk Audio OWM3 speakers (four Lbs) and the brackets hold great. They gave me lots of latitude in speaker positioning due to the various extensions and configurations available.
Pros:
White matches the speakers, various speaker angles available, fit and finish good.
Cons:
None, pay attention to your speaker weight, I don't think they will hold much over 5 pounds at stated

Be careful about speaker weight

Written By Beeb, Sammamish WA on Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Decent manufacturing and finish quality. Rated at 5 lbs. - weigh your speaker - do not assume. Four stars only because I can not believe there are very many surround speakers out there in five lb or less category. Hence, not fit for intended purpose. I could be wrong. If yours are, then all other aspects of the product were good.

will these work on klipsch satellite speakers? [ robert  Mar 02, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • That will depend on exactly which speakers you have. However, if the speakers have a keyhole slot or a threaded insert for mounting, and are under 5 lbs each, then this bracket will work great with them. [ Jeff Staff  Mar 03, 2014 ]
