I have a 55" sony ex500 I want to hang in the alcove in our basement. The TV weighs about 65 lbs. The mount will only have tilt and will be tilted downward about 5-10 degrees.
The back wall of the alcove is almost exactly the width of the TV and has one stud directly in the middle with two more at the very corners of the back wall of the alcove. So, I had planned on a sheet of plywood spanning all three studs and mount the tv mount to that. But, would it suffice to hang the mount with two(maybe even 4 as i think it's a double stud) lag bolts into the center stud and then either 4 mollies or toggle bolts on each side of center? I mean, would this be MORE than enough for it to be secure? I want a safety factor here. But I have to work with what I have.
Thanks for any help!
