1. Looks like you use the fireplace for fires. I would be concerned that the soundbar will melt with the TV up. No mantel.
2. I'd have concerns that someone would bring the TV down with a fire in the fireplace. It could easily burn down your house if that happens. I suggest you do something to 'disable' the fireplace permanently, so that can never happen.
3. If you have kids or kids' friends or toddler relatives, I suggest you install 'blocking' - remove the drywall, make it VERY strong. Kids swing on things like that. Kids can get seriously hurt if that's not hung correctly. I can't imagine killing a friend's child because I didn't want to spend $50 to buy some lumber, drywall mud, and paint, to hang it right. 100 pound static load + 50 pound child = tragedy.
Edit - sorry to be a dick. Very cool mount, though.
