Just install a J-box where you'd like to mount your speaker, and you'll have a safe, clean way for your in-wall cable to exit your wall. You'll enjoy a clean, uncluttered appearance with no exposed wires.

Features

Overview: The Pinpoint AM20 Universal Home Theater Speaker Wall/Ceiling Bracket is suitable for all home theater satellite speakers with the following types of mountings - Single Threaded insert, Dual threaded inserts, Keyhole. This bracket is a complete mounting solution for home theater speakers and will work for both wall or ceiling applications. This speaker bracket also comes with a steel adapter plate that allows the speaker bracket to attach directly to a single ganged electrical box if your home is pre-wired. In addition, the bracket comes supplied with a short-arm (45mm) and an extension-arm (100mm) to place your speaker closer or further away from the wall or ceiling. The AM20 speaker bracket supports speakers up to 11 lbs. Once your speaker is mounted the AM20 allows you to rotate your speaker 360-degrees and pivot the speaker 90-degrees for precise positioning of the speaker in your home theater system. The AM20 comes supplied with all the necessary hardware to mount your speaker to the bracket and the bracket to your wall or ceiling.

Note: The AM20 is sold individually as a single speaker bracket; not in pairs. The AM20 is available in the following finishes - Black, White and Silver.

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, 1/4"-20 x 1", 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"-20 x 1") to attach the speaker to the bracket. Screw spacing for the dual point adapter plate is 1.9375" to 2.625"
  • Keyhole Slot: If the speaker has a keyhole slot, you must first loosely attach the M5 threaded screw-cap 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.

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 1.875" to 2.625" 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. In addition, the speaker bracket comes supplied with a steel adapter plate that allows the AM20 to attach directly to a single ganged electrical box if your home is pre-wired.

Mounting Requirement: It is recommended that the bracket be mounted to a wall or ceiling stud. If the only location is drywall for ceiling or 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. 

Dimensions:

  • Bracket With Short Arm: Width = 2.045", Height = 3.655", Depth = 3.548"
  • Bracket With Extension-Arm: Width = 2.045", Height = 3.655", Depth = 5.763"

Q
will it work for HKTS speakers to wall mount?
[ Venkat  Dec 01, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
I have used 4 of these very successfully to mount Polk VM10 speakers in two different rooms. One of the speakers I had to use the long arm mount to miss a curtain rod. I recommend these.
[ Christopher L.  Dec 10, 2016 ]
A
These mounts are awesome. They will work on any speaker that has a threaded (mounting) hole on the back side. Don't worry about the thread type or size, as the mount includes several adapters.
[ Joseph  Dec 07, 2016 ]
Q
Do you need a junction box to mount this or can you just mount it on drywall?
[ Paul  May 17, 2016 ]
5 answers
A
A junction box would be optimal but is not required. If you are to mount in drywall make sure you use the proper anchor screws and verify the drywall can support the weight you plan on holding.
[ Paul  Jun 02, 2016 ]
A
I suppose that you could mount them right to drywall as long as you are using some hefty anchors. They recommend mounting to studs for stability purposes. I am using junction boxes for mine due to the location they have to be in and the weight of my speakers (they are older Infinity satellites).
[ Robert  May 20, 2016 ]
A
I specifically selected this mount because it mounted on a junction box and it works very well. I see no reason why it would not mount to wall given the correct mounting hardware. You can also use an "old work" junction box. If not using a junction box, there are other options that would have a smaller footprint.
[ MICHAEL  May 19, 2016 ]
A
As long as the speaker is light enough, you probably could mount it in drywall, but you might want to invest in some drywall screws or put it where there's a stud.
[ Jeffrey  May 18, 2016 ]
A
No do not need a junction box. Can mount directly to a stud
[ Geoffrey  May 18, 2016 ]
Q
Will these fit Bose series 10 v speakers?
[ Shawn  Mar 16, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
They are not recommended for use with the Acoustimass 10 series V speakers, no. The Bose UB-20 II are the recommended mounting brackets for those speakers: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_018UB20IIB/item.html I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5

Q
Do these mounts work with satellite speakers provided with Vizio Smartcast surround system?
[ Scott S  Nov 11, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
I can't say with 100% certainty, because I don't know what the back of your speakers look like. But they looked to me like they would fit any application out there. They are well worth the money too.
[ Chad  Nov 12, 2017 ]
A
These mounts were installed with white Cambridge Minx Minn 22 Satellite Audio speakers. I used the mounts to point the sound in desired directions. Came with 2 types of ceiling installation brackets/screws/plates. Combination working well with newly white painted semi gloss ceiling.
[ Ernest  Nov 12, 2017 ]
Q
Just picked up a set of Polk TL1 satellites and am trying to figure out if these would work to hang them. The reason I'm not sure is that my J-boxes are in the ceiling. If the speakers mounting accommodations were mid-speaker, I'm sure that these would not work but the TL1s, 2s, & 3s all have their mount near the top of the speaker... Has anyone used these to hang a Polk TL speaker from the ceiling or know if this would work? Many thanks in advance...
[ Tom  Jun 10, 2016 ]
3 answers
A
I have these for both ceiling and wall mount with the Polk TL's. They work great in both applications.
[ David  Jun 11, 2016 ]
A
I have these mounts and love them. Once I get home and check the box I'll see if ceiling mount will work. Btw, I have the speakers and love them. Just make sure you pair those with a good sub.
[ DAVE  Jun 11, 2016 ]
A
I have mounted some Polk surround sound speakers not sure the model but they worked well.
