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.
