Adjustable wall-mount speaker bracket (White)
Our take on the Pinpoint AM30 by Crutchfield's 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.

Thanks for submitting your review
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.

5 questions already asked
You can mount the thing anywhere you want to provided you don't exceed the rated weight capacity and use the proper hardware, i.e. properly drilled and sized drywall anchors if mounting in drywall only, or proper screws if mounting to a stud. Obviously, you need to avoid drilling into the electrical wire as well. [ ANDREW Nov 02, 2017 ]
Unlikely. Non standard screw placement. Designed to go into wall. [ Mischa Nov 02, 2017 ]
1 answer How do these mounts compare to the Definitive Technology ProMount 90s? (http://www.crutchfield.com/p_735PMT90B/Definitive-Technology-ProMount-90-Black.html) Is anyone experiencing bolt/nut stripping issues? I have four Definitive Technology 1000 speakers mounted with the Def Tech 90s on an angled ceiling and had to exchange two of the Def Tech 90 mounts because they were unable to hold the 1000s at the desired angle (two bolts/nuts stripped). Hoping these Pinpoints can handle the Def Tech 1000s that will go in the garage with no fuss. [ MarkL Oct 30, 2016 ]
They are better, but they are a challenge to tighten and keep the speaker at the right angle. [ JOHN Oct 31, 2016 ]
Yes, it's. For mounting rears speakers [ MICHAEL G Jun 03, 2014 ]
They are sold singly. You will need to buy 2. I had to buy 4. On the order page under the Details tab, it says: 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. They work well, so it was worth it. [ MARTY May 30, 2014 ]
Thank you! [ David May 29, 2014 ]
I checked my order from over a year ago and it shows Qty 4, and I have 4 wall mounted speakers. [ TIM May 29, 2014 ]
Nope, it says they are sold each, not as a pair. They are sold as singles. You can also click on details and click on "whats in the box" tab. [ BENJAMIN May 29, 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 Jan 27, 2014 ] Staff
This is not recommended for the Play3. It looks like the Play3 may be slightly over the recommended weight for these brackets. [ Jeff Dec 11, 2013 ] Staff
