Customer Q&A

5 questions already asked

Does this mount support Sonos Play1?
[ Stephen  Sep 08, 2018 ]

I'm sorry, but I don't know. It was suggested that I used them for a Martin Logan speaker but truthfully it wasn't a very good fit. I really didn't like the construct of the mount. Although it had plenty of options and was small I don't feel it was made well, or that strong. I also had problems with adjusting the bracket. I hope this helps.
[ SCOTT  Sep 12, 2018 ]
I have it supporting a Heos 1 HS2. Has done great.
[ GEORGE  Sep 12, 2018 ]
Yes, absolutely.
[ Sergio  Sep 12, 2018 ]
how big (dimensions) can a speaker be and still work with this without touching the ceiling?
[ L  Jun 17, 2018 ]

For our own aesthetic reasons, we chose not to use these speaker mounts, we used the built-in bracket and screw on the speaker The product seemed excellent. It's adjustable and I believe could handle a 12" speaker. Hope this helps.
[ Stephen  Jun 21, 2018 ]
My speakers are 7 3/4 inches high and there's 2 1/2 clearance between them and the ceiling.
[ Alan  Jun 21, 2018 ]
Sorry, I can't answer this question because I have used the mounts to place all my speakers at the walls.
[ Eberhard  Jun 19, 2018 ]
Wouldn't that depend on where the mounting hole was?
[ Dennis  Jun 19, 2018 ]
As a point of reference, I used them for a set of Def Audio Pro Cinema 600 speakers and was able to mount the bracket to the ceiling without any of the speakers touching the ceiling
[ Thomas  Jun 19, 2018 ]
How many mounts per package?
[ Dave  Dec 18, 2016 ]

[ Robin  Dec 19, 2016 ]

[ DENNIS  Dec 19, 2016 ]
Are these compatable with SONOS play 1?
[ David  Nov 25, 2015 ]
2 answers
[ DENNIS  Nov 25, 2015 ]
These are wired speakers. If SONOS is a wireless system, it won't work with these speakers.
[ Aaron  Nov 25, 2015 ]
Hey, i have recently purchased a set of pinpoint mounts and a no name pair, but they both said that they were Samsung compatible but neither of the fit. The keyhole set up screws are to big and don't fit in the keyhole that are on the back of the speakers. And the other mounts screws are either to big, to small, or the brackets holes don't line up. Can you please suggest a mount set that is compatible with the Samsung ht-hm55 speakers?

The mounts worked well with the Polk Audio OWM3 as a wall mount allowing flexibility to point towards the sweet spot in my room as surround speakers.
[ JEFFREY D  Aug 03, 2014 ]
The Sanus WMS3 were easy to install and mount the speakers on
[ ARTHUR  Aug 02, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Since we do not carry the HT HM55 it is difficult to say which would be a perfect match, but based on the info I found online the AM40 should work fine. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
