Pinpoint AM25

Overview

Our take on the Pinpoint AM25

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.

Using them to hold 7lb speakers and very effective.

Ron from California on 6/8/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were recommended for installation with my Minx Min speakers that i was putting in my class A motor home. These were very easy to install into the ceiling structure and come with a very wide array of connecting screws and accessories to connect just about any speaker. Fully adjustable and provide about a 3 ' drop from the ceiling. couldn't be happier.

Pros: Wide array of adapters, easy instalation

Cons: None

Highly adjustable

Steve from Pen Argyl, PA on 4/6/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Brackets are pretty nice. Highly adjustable.

Pros: Adjusts every which way.

Cons: There is no internal route for the wire to run. So the wires are always exposed and if you mount it to far from the hole where the wires comes out of the ceiling youll see it.

Solid product

Hank from Illinois on 3/29/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product is well made and easy to install. I did have to go out and buy a different length screw to fit the speakers, but was no big deal. I actually used this as a ceiling mount instead of a wall mount.

Pros: Solid construction.

Cons: None

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

Great item

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

easy to install and lots of directional movement/adjustment...but it would be nice if the speaker wire could have been run thru the tube of the bracket.....still happy with them

Pros:

Cons:

easy to install with better anchors

dgelb from Baltimore, MD on 2/21/2013

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

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Quality product. Easy to install. Ability to angle and turn speakers is great. Only drawback is the speaker wire is not concealed from ceiling to back of speaker. Service and advise is excellent.

Clean Install

outdoors from Austin, TX on 7/5/2012

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

Ed S. from Lincoln, DE on 3/12/2012

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.

carl from las cruces, nm on 11/14/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Cons:

Excellent bracket with plenty of attachment options

Bernard from Sacramento, CA on 8/23/2010

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

Nicholis from Minnesota on 4/15/2010

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.

Cons:

Did the trick

Patrick from Atlanta, Ga on 3/23/2009

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.

Pros:

Cons:

Perfect

Leif from Dallas, TX on 1/19/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

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.

Advisor told me the AM25 will be the right product to mount the speakers to the ceiling [ Steven  Jul 28, 2016 ]

2 questions already asked

Yes they can. And they are very adjustable. [ TERRENCE O  Jul 25, 2016 ]
These work on a smaller ball joint and set screw setup like the picture suggests. I have used them for years and had no problem with cieling mounting satellite speakers. I imagine that if the speaker were not heavy that they would not drift when used wall mounted. That said, I would suggests cranking the set screw down firmly to avoid the problem. [ Gareth  Jul 25, 2016 ]
I can not speak directly to your speakers but I just installed these to support Minx mini speakers in my RV. They come with multiple mounting hardware that is very easy to use. As long as your speakers accept the standard screw mounts of most speakers you will have no problems. [ Ron  May 26, 2015 ]
