The AM21 is perfect for folks who want to connect in-wall speaker cable to a wall-mounted speaker. It includes a metal mounting plate that can attach directly to a standard single-gang junction box. 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.

Junk. Unless you're hanging a super lightweight Arlo camera on it, don't bother. The screws all get stripped out super fast. Won't keep anything tilted on an angle at all. Used mine for a small wifi speaker and never worked at all. No problem. Get what you pay for.

This product works great for my new Orb speakers. No issues with installation. Was surprised to find that it included both a wall and electrical box mounting hardware. Can easily position speakers. Wish it was a little less pricey.



Speaker mount

Just what I was looking for. Need to get a different bolt for the small hole in my speaker.



Not good.

Anonymous from Northport, NY on 1/13/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Too many pieces to allow numerous mounting configurations, which gives rise to confusion during assembly. Limited instructions. You need to be an engineer to figure this one out. Also very flimsey holding 4 pound speakers. They sag even with the set screw tightened to the point of stripping the threads.

Just Okay

Tombo from Haysville, KS on 5/17/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speaker mounts look good but are not easy to adjust. The pivot does not want to stay tight in many positions. Some parts are easy to lose because they are so small.

Pros: These speaker mounts look good and fit in with any decor.

Cons: Don't want to stay tight in most postitions.

Great Product!

Jamie from woolwich, ME on 3/9/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were so easy to install and look great

Pros: lots of different configurations and adjustment options


Good but not quite as secure as they should be

Russ B from Houston, TX on 2/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed a set of Energy Take 5.1's in the ceiling with these (just the 4 tiny left and right speakers). I really like the all-in-one design of a cover plate and speaker mount, but as others have said, it was difficult to set the angle securely without some drifting. These speakers are very light so I was able to get them to stay where I wanted them, but heavier speakers probably would droop no matter what.

Pros: Unique all-in-one cover plate with mount for a clean look Easy install

Cons: Limited to very lightweight speakers Ball joint doesn't hold tight enough

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy installation, the only problem is, I have to keep tightening to stay in place.

Pros: Easy installation Faceplate looks good

Cons: Speakers doesn't stay in place. Because of the screw keeps getting loose.

Very poor design

Jh from watertown, SD on 1/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought for definitive technology pro monitor 800 speakers that weigh 4lbs each. They hold up for about a week, then drop down. After a couple of times resetting them, they are basically ruined. Very frustrating, but thankful that Crutchfield stands by their product.



Perfect fit

Marcus from grand prairie, TX on 1/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect idea for surround sound with drop ins.

Pros: Perfect fit and easy

Cons: Don't over tighten

Just ok

Jason R from Illinois on 1/18/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The installation went ok until it came time to adjust the speaker angle. The set screw on the ball joint had to be tightened so much that I thought I would break the supplied Allen wrench. Once I tightened them to the breaking point, I plugged in my speakers and played a song at medium volume. One of the two speakers was pointing straight down half way through the song. This is unacceptable for such an expensive product. I am going to purchase a different set screw at the hardware store and see if that will fix the problem.

Pros: Look great and have unlimited adjustments.

Cons: Set screw that holds the adjustment does not work. Too expensive.

Pre-Wired Home- EASY

Jmac_o3 from Texas on 1/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had a pre-wired media room in our new home, with ugly white blank faceplates. No openings for wires, just simply a blank faceplate to store the wires behind. Being the first time I've ever done something like this, I wanted to make it look like professional finish. After visiting all of the local hardware and media outlets nearby, I soon realized there was no product available for sale to replace those faceplates and simultaneously mount my speakers. No items that would at the same time let the wire come through without looking tacky. Stumbled onto this item after extensive online research. Installed in under an hour 5 speakers. I love how it came with extenders so that I could position our back speakers a little bit lower. This is the only product that could replace those ugly blank face plates left in most pre-wired homes for you to have to figure out.

Pros: Easy to install. Professional finish. Available in black or white to match you home. Directions easy to read.

Cons: Would like to have more extenders available for side purchase to lower speakers from ceiling a bit more.

Speaker Wall Mounts

I am very impressed with the quality, ease of installation and the fact they look Great too!!



Needs better design to support speaker

MichaelD from Texas on 9/14/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like everything about this mount except that the set screw to lock the speaker into location did not work well. The mount would relax and lower the speaker.



Not the best product

PaulD from Georgia on 3/28/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

for the price I expected better, there isn't much of a market for this type of mount.

Pros: fits over electrical box

Cons: barely supported the speaker, had to take down and rework the bracket several times.

Work, but not great

Max from Midwest on 1/27/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were about the only speaker mounts that I could find that were made to install with a standard square receptacle / light switch box. They work perfectly for that. There are two major issues. One: The tension on the radial arm that holds the speaker in position won't hold my speakers up without sagging. I bought these with a pair of Polk Audio Blackstone TL2's which are under the advertised weight limit for the speaker mounts, but they still sag. Luckily, that's not a big problem for me because they hang down from the ceiling so they actually droop down to just about the right angle for my room. Here's the biggest flaw: the posts that come with the mounts (there are two included, each a different length) are painted end to end such that there's paint on the threads that screw into the mounting arm. I found it IMPOSSIBLE to screw the arm onto the post without removing some of the paint with some steel wool. And even then I had to use some pliers (with a rubber pad in the mouth) to secure the post while I forced the post to screw into the arm. In doing this, I scratched the paint where I held it with the pliers. This is a horrible finish on what is otherwise a decent design.

Pros: Works great with a standard receptacle box.

Cons: Weight limitation on the mounting arm and very difficult to put together due to paint on the post threads


jc from huntsville, al on 1/21/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works great...metal....not plastic crap!

Pros: We ordered the black since our speakers were black. They are nice and sturdy and match perfectly.


Nice Surprise

Jerry from Hollidaysburg, PA on 9/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these to mount to an existing duplex wall box. Speaker wires through the box and bracket hole. Perfect fit to the duplex box. I mounted a pair of Polk Audio OWM3 speakers (four Lbs) and the brackets hold great. They gave me lots of latitude in speaker positioning due to the various extensions and configurations available.

Pros: White matches the speakers, various speaker angles available, fit and finish good.

Cons: None, pay attention to your speaker weight, I don't think they will hold much over 5 pounds at stated

Be careful about speaker weight

Beeb from Sammamish WA on 2/20/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Decent manufacturing and finish quality. Rated at 5 lbs. - weigh your speaker - do not assume. Four stars only because I can not believe there are very many surround speakers out there in five lb or less category. Hence, not fit for intended purpose. I could be wrong. If yours are, then all other aspects of the product were good.



Great Product

DannyR from Mitchellville, MD on 1/27/2013

Great Product! Bought 2 for my daughter, and I am about to order 2 more. Worked just as advertised.

Pros: Comes with everything you'll needNone



Hands-on research

Product Research


Compatibility: The Pinpoint AM21 Universal Speaker Mount is constructed from steel and aluminum for durability and strength. The Pinpoint AM21 can be used as a wall or ceiling mount bracket for speakers up to 5 lbs. Its suitable for speakers with a key-hole slot, as well as speakers with a rear-mount or bottom-mount single threaded insert (M4, M5, M6, 1/4"-20). This mount comes with all the hardware needed to mount your speaker to both a solid surface (drywall/block), as well as single gang electrical box.

Installation: An included color matched adapter plate allows the AM21 to be mounted on a single gang electrical box, found in pre-wired locations in home theater rooms. The adapter plate adds a custom appearance for a professional looking installation. Plastic covers hide mounting hardware for a clean, professional appearance when not using the electrical plate adapter. The Pinpoint AM21's modular design allows your speaker to be attached to the bracket after installing it to the wall or ceiling, and offers adjustable tilt and swivel. A comprehensive hardware kit provides the most common screw sizes (M4, M5, M6, 1/4"-20) for attaching your speaker.

Adjustable: The AM21 can be rotated 360-degrees and tilts 90-degrees. Included mounting-arms allow the speaker to be positioned 2.75", 3.75", or 6" (standard mounting) and 2.15", 3.15", or 3.40" (electrical box mounting) from the wall or ceiling allowing for exact speaker placement and improved sound for home theater systems.

Sorry I can't answer My speakers were Polk [ Paul  Nov 29, 2015 ]
That will depend on exactly which speakers you have. However, if the speakers have a keyhole slot or a threaded insert for mounting, and are under 5 lbs each, then this bracket will work great with them. [ Jeff  Mar 03, 2014 ]  Staff
hello Vincent. These mounts are universal and fit Bose's 10 type of cube speakers. - Tony / AV Concepts [ Tony  Jan 14, 2017 ]
My Bose jewel cube speakers has no screw holes, and this mount is not designed for that. I had to drill a hole in the speaker casing to put the screw in to make this work. [ Kevin  Jan 14, 2017 ]
No idea I hung book shelf speakers with them [ Gary  May 02, 2016 ]
I don't have the Sonos 1, but it doesn't seem to have a standard mounting point. I see that there are some third-party adapters for the Sonos, so you'd need both the mounting bracket and the adapter. Also, several people have complained that the AM21 can drift or sag, and the Sonos' weight of 4.1 lb is getting close to the AM21's design limit of 5 lb, so you might want to consider something a little stronger. I used the AM21 for lighter speakers at 2.9 lb and struggled a little to get them tight enough. I like the idea of the AM21 but they need to make it hold position more securely. [ Russ  May 02, 2016 ]
