Our take on the Pinpoint AM30

by Kristen Schaub

Pinpoint's AM30 speaker bracket has a curved face designed especially for small cube-style speakers. Made from molded glass-filled nylon and cast aluminum, the AM30 will hold a speaker up to 8 lbs. without introducing unwanted resonance to its sound. The two-piece design makes for easy installation and adjustment, giving you the ability to swivel the speaker left or right up to 90° and up or down up to 20°.

The AM30 comes with all the mounting hardware you need. A channel in the body of the mount lets speaker wire pass through from the bottom or back, giving you a cleaner, clutter-free look.

Features

Overview: The PinPoint AM30 is constructed of molded glass filled nylon and cast aluminum for low resonance and durability. Suitable for speakers with M3-M5 keyhole fixing or single threaded inserts that require a M4, M5, M6 & UNC-1/4 20 (all bolts and mounting screws included); up to 8 lbs. Each bracket is supplied with a special offset adapter with curved face designed especially for small cube style speakers including BOSE single and dual mini speakers. Adapter can be removed for mounting traditional home theater speakers that require a single 1/4-20" thread increasing it mounting options. A low profile design keeps speaker close to the wall (3.5") yet still provides a 90° swivel (left & right) and tilts up and down 20°. Unique 2 piece design allows for easy installation and adjustment. Speaker wire can be passed through the body of the mount from the bottom or back for clean clutter free appearance.

Note: The AM30 is sold individually as a single speaker bracket; not in pairs. The AM30 is available in the following finishes - Black or White.

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

  • Single Threaded Insert (M4-M6): If the speaker has a single threaded insert, one of the supplied screws (M4 x 12mm, M5 x 12mm, or M6 x 12mm) can be used to attach the speaker to the bracket using the single point adapter.
  • Single Threaded Insert (1/4-20"): If the speaker has a single 1/4-20" threaded insert, you must unscrew the single point adapter to expose the 1/4-20" threaded post, which then threads into your speaker's 1/4-20" insert.
  • Keyhole Slot: If the speaker has a keyhole slot, you must first loosely attach the M5 threaded screw-cap to the large-head 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.

Wall Mounting: The speaker bracket's metal mounting plate is first mounted to the wall in a vertical position. There are 2 mounting holes with a screw spacing of 1.625" for the supplied wood screws, plus a raised lip for routing the speaker wire through the wall. Once the metal mounting plate is secured to the wall, the cover plate snaps over the metal mounting plate for a clean and professional look.

Mounting Requirement: It is recommended that the bracket be mounted to a wall stud. If the only location is drywall for wall mounting then it will necessary to use the supplied drywall anchors for a speaker up to 5 lbs. If your speaker is over 5 lbs, it will be necessary to obtain high quality drywall anchors like Buildex E-Z Toggle or toggler Anchor available at most hardware stores in the US.

Written By DaveF, Langhorne, PA on Thursday, November 14, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Not real happy with the product. Seems that the fit was too tight against the wall so the wiring could not fit behind the mount. Also you are blind with adjustments so have to pull off and put on speakers for fit.
Pros:
small and discrete; fit and finish
Cons:
blind adjustments and bracket puts too close to wall.

AM 30 Mounting Bracket

Written By Aucontractor, Collierville, Tennessee on Wednesday, April 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The AM 30's worked great and were easily strong enough to hold my Polk speakers the right position. The only reason I did not give them a 5 star was that the lock nut was too large to fit in the hole on the rear of the speaker.
Pros:
Great coordination of speaker wires and mounting joint.
Cons:
Lock nut interfered with speaker mount so it had to be removed.

Make sure you have a stud to mount to.

Written By Anonymous, Baltimore, MD on Monday, December 24, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The mounts are small, wide range, relatively easy to install.
Pros:
They offer good range and ease of install. Price is nice.
Cons:
The installation materials used to install on drywall are garbage. Drilling out holes to put in the plastic anchors was a snap, getting the anchors into the holes was a disaster. The way they're designed baffles me. They're twice as big at the back as they are at the front so getting them into the wall actually makes the hole bigger than the side you screw the screw into. One of the mounts installed relatively okay, but the other hangs off the wall after the anchor enlarged the hole too much.

Nice alternative to standard satellite speaker brackets

Written By DaveS, Baltimore, MD on Wednesday, October 03, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Well constructed product. Cast metal part that attaches to speaker had to be modified (drill hole for additional thread clearance to use original speaker mount screw). Removed approximately 0.025" per side - easy to do with a pair of pliers and a drill. Ball joint allows rotation through about 120 degress in one plane and 10 degrees in the second orthagonal plane. Mounting plate allows full 360 orientation of the speaker. I had no problem orienting the speaker the way I wanted it oriented but I did mount the speaker to the AM30 first to determine how I would connect the bracket to the ceiling - then installed the hardware in the favorable orientation.
Pros:
Easy to install and aim. Adequate clamp in the ball joint so that speaker does not move once positioned.
Cons:
If you ceiling mount the product and have spring clips to connect the speaker wire you may find connecting the speaker once mounted a bit of a challenge. Not insurmountable though.

Good bracket for the price

Written By jdog99, Illinois on Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These brackets do their job for small speakers. I have the Energy Take Classic system and they work fine. They were a little hard to work with and install as they are a modular design and break down to several pieces that you must reassemble during installation. They required a little more work to install than some other brackets I have used, but at the price I would recommend them.
Pros:
Price
Cons:
Modular design makes for a little bit more difficult install than some.

I am using this product for my Bose satalites and they are awesome. The mount were very east to install and look great. I only wish I found them sooner before I ran my wiring and completed my wall to take advantage of the pass through for the wire. Crutchfield was right on with the shipping and would definitely purchase through them again.

very versatile to a variety of speaker models, easy to install.

Good speaker mounts

Written By Melissa, Michigan on Monday, March 26, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speaker wall mounts worked exactly as we were expecting they would for our Polk Audio Blackstone speakers. We were able to get the wire through the wall, through the back of the speaker mount, and into the speaker with no problems. The small size of the mounts give the clean look we were hoping for. These wall mounts were a great value.

Great Speaker Mounts

Written By Nick, Raleigh, NC on Tuesday, February 07, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Perfect for minimizing view of speaker wire coming out of the wall. Easy to mount. Good range of motion when speaker is attached. Using with LG speakers with 5mm threads. Recommend mounting in studs as drywall anchors are large.
Pros:
Hides speaker wire; easy install; professional look
Cons:
Drywall anchors too big -- prefer to drill smaller holes

DId the job

Written By fred, Lansing MI on Wednesday, October 13, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Did the job, mounted nicely. Lots of adjustment vertically but horizontally
only a few degrees each way. I liked the fact there was a separate mounting
bracket then the actual mount slipped over, covering it up. Still pricey
considering what you get, but then all of these type of mounts are WAY overpriced.

Nice low profile mounts. Attaching them to the wall is a breeze. Don't count on using the
wire through mount feature, low profile makes that difficult. Otherwise a good value.

The AM30 is available in the following finishes - Black or White. They work well, so it was worth it. [ MARTY   May 30, 2014 ]

  • You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your current speakers. They will be able to pull up your speakers and see if this will work. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Jeff Staff  Jan 27, 2014 ]
