Our take on the Pinpoint AM25

by Chris Egner

Mount a compact satellite speaker securely to your ceiling with the Pinpoint AM25 bracket. Its ball-and-socket joint gives you a 90° pivot, and you can rotate the mounting arm a full 360° for added positioning flexibility. This bracket is compatible with a wide range of satellite speakers, including those found in many surround sound speaker systems.

Features

Product Overview: The PINPOINT AM25 ceiling-mount speaker bracket is designed to work with all types of satellite speakers, including those with single threaded inserts, dual threaded inserts and keyhole mounts. The bracket consists of metal and plastic construction with a complete selection of speaker mounting hardware. The supplied cover plates slide on to hide the mounting screws from view.

Note: The AM25 is sold individually as a single speaker bracket; not in pairs. The AM25 is available in the following finishes - Black or White.

Weight Capacity: These brackets can handle speakers up to 11 pounds.

Speaker Mounts: The bracket works with the following types of satellite speakers mounts:

  • Single Threaded Insert: If the speaker has a single threaded insert, one of the supplied long screws (M5 x 25mm, M6 x 25mm, or 1/4"-20 x 1.75") can be used to attach the speaker to the bracket using the single point adapter.
  • Dual Threaded Inserts: If the speaker has dual threaded inserts, you must first attach the dual point adapter plate to the bracket, then use the shorter screw pairs (M5 x 12mm, M6 x 12mm, or 1/4" x 1/2" UNC) to attach the speaker to the bracket. Screw spacing for the dual point adapter plate is 1.95" to 2.75".
  • Keyhole Slot: If the speaker has a keyhole slot, you must first loosely attach the M5 x 12mm nut to the M5 x 12mm screw through the single point adapter. The head of the screw is then inserted into the keyhole slot and tightened to hold the speaker firmly.

Speaker Aiming: The AM25 offers total flexibility in aiming the speaker. The mounting arm rotates a full 360 degrees, while the ball and socket joint allows you to angle the speaker up to 90 degrees.

Mounting Recommendations: It is recommended that the bracket be mounted to a ceiling joist or to a concrete ceiling. It is not recommended that it be mounted to drywall only. Wall anchors are supplied for use on concrete ceilings only. The screw spacing for the ceiling bracket is 1.98" to 2.75".

Note: If the selected location doesn't have a ceiling joist or is not concrete, it will be necessary to obtain high quality "butterfly" anchors, available at most hardware stores.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very nice looking speaker mounts. I was dissapointed with the setscrew locking feature. Would of liked to see some locktite on the set screws to keep them from loosening up and having the speaker fall to the ground.
Pros:
Nice Looking
Cons:
Poor locking feature

easy to install with better anchors

Written By dgelb, Baltimore, MD on Thursday, February 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are very nice and easy to install. They are adequate to hold up a pair of 11 pound speakers. The final result looks very professional. Installing the brackets in my ceiling did not line up with the joists so they went into the wallboard itself. I had to go to the hardware store and buy some better anchors but once I did that, the entire process was quick and easy.
Pros:
nice professional appearance
Cons:
needs better wall anchors for installation in wall board

Great little speaker mounts. I hate having to place rear surrounds on a stand. The stand gets in my way, nowhere to run wires. With these i hang them from the ceiling and run the wires along the corner of the ceiling. Its great.
Pros:
Solid, look cool, many adapters to fit any kind of speaker mounting points. Very adjustable. (tilt rotate so on)
Cons:
none

Clean Install

Written By outdoors, Austin, TX on Thursday, July 05, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Got these for some Yamaha outdoor speakers. The Yamaha's were supposed to be ceiling mountable but were not. These ceiling mount brackets did the trick. They work well for a larger speaker, too, not just surround speakers. The main arm of the mount hangs down a good 4" so it allowed the speakers to be mounted vertically. This hides most of the bracket for a clean look. The brackets come with lots of various sized screws for multiple mounting configurations. The joints of the brackets are each adjustable to aim the speakers where you want them. Installation was very straight-forward once I determined which hardware was needed. It did take me awhile to decide which would be the best way to achieve the best look and sound. That's just a by-product of so many possible variations.
Pros:
Clean appearance, sturdy materials (the only plastic is the piece that hides the screws for the baseplate and is a nice finishing touch), many hardware options, very adjustable for aiming. Holds 8 lb speakers with ease.
Cons:
The allen-head set screws are easily stripped by the included tool. They look easily replaceable although I haven't needed to.

Excellent Mount

Written By Ed S., Lincoln, DE on Monday, March 12, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy to install, Nice fit and finish.
Pros:
-Easy to install -All metal Heavy Duty Design
Cons:
Only 1 5mm bolt provided for keyhole type mount. It would be better to include a couple shorter than the one provided. Screws provided to mount the bracket to the stud seemed a bit small in diameter to support speakers above ten pounds. I recommend going with something a little heavier.

they work well but are somewhat difficult to install even for a professional installer. I
hired a professional to install my speakers and they did a good job and it looks good
they just struggled a bit to get the speakers to fit properly and had some trouble hanging
the mounts.

Excellent bracket with plenty of attachment options

Written By Bernard, Sacramento, CA on Monday, August 23, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These mounting brackets work great. We used them to attach the Energy RC Micro 5.1
speaker system to our ceiling. They come with lots of extra screws to attach to the
speakers so they should fit just about any model. I also really like the angle versaitility.
The only thing I do not like is that the speaker wires will be exposed. The plastic cover
plate is cheap and snaps together in the middle but leaves no room to hide the speaker
wire. If you are installing a new system make sure you place the speaker wire outside
of where the cover will snap over the bracket's wall/ceiling plate otherwise you might not
be able to snap the cover plate together with the speaker wires coming through. If you
don't know what I am talking about then look at the picture of the bracket mounted to the
ceiling (w/o a speaker attached) and imagine the speaker wire is coming through the
ceiling outside of the cover plate. You can hide it pretty well with some black or whtie
electrical tape. Good product overall.

Pinpoint Brackets work

Written By Nicholis, Minnesota on Thursday, April 15, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These brackets work great. Adjust in any direction you may need. Attractive design. Easy setup and all hardware is included. There was only three slight problems I ran into. The dry wall plugs are a little hard to get into the ceiling. They want to bend when pushing them into the ceiling. Once they are in they work great. The supplied wrench has a long handle. If you mount your brackets close to the wall it is hard to get to the screws with this wrench. The last small problem was the stem wants to loosen from the base. Make sure it is tight before hanging the brackets.

Pinpoint AM25

Written By Patrick, Atlanta, Ga on Monday, March 23, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Unit is solid and maybe a little undersold from the aspect of what it can hold in terms of speakers. I was a little disappointed that the keyhole screws wouldn't work with my speakers as they were too big to fit into the keyhole. Thus, I had to resort to mounting the brackets on my speakers. The screws sent for molunting the bracket were a little over the top (too big and massive for the requirment at hand; therefore I substituted others. I really like range available for adjustment, but the allen screws leave a lot of play in movement, which requires some time to get just right. Once set the speakers haven't moved any; however, I could see how they would given the play in the allen screw set up. Once fully installed, they look good and blend well with ivory ceilings.

These ceiling mount brackets are well made, easy to install, and fit well with my Onkyo surround speakers. They can be adjusted to aim the speakers, and the white color makes them unnoticeable against my white ceilings.
