So i'm in escrow, and have a 27x16 room that i will be converting to a dedicated home theater.

the only "flaw" is that it has vaulted ceilings, are there any challenges that will exist to projector mounting issues?

thanks.

I'm no expert, and my vaulted theater room is only 18'x15.5', but depending on the projector you'll be using (mine is a JVC RS-45) and which wall will have the screen, you could wall mount it. My screen is on one of the 18' walls with the projector mount 15' back. It ends up being about 13.5' from the lens to screen.

It took many hours of searching to find this; it seems not many people choose to mount projectors on a wall eek.gif [http://www.chiefmfg.com/Series/WM1] I paired it with the RPA bracket made specifically for the JVC.

It looks much smaller on the website than I expected; this thing is a beast. That's a good thing though, so is the JVC. smile.gif I feel very comfortable hanging a big projector on this mount because I think they were ultra conservative in their weight rating.

I'd include a picture but I'm not home; maybe later.

Wall mounting would probably not be feasible, as my theater will be going the long way, using about 2/3rds of the room most likely.

Thanks for the reply though! I just figured they had some sort of solution, a angled ceiling mount is definitely a niche item.

the angled ceiling mounting plate has been in the Chief catalog a long time.

Thanks...I am new to this part of HT.

Looks a little chincy to hold a $4-6k projector.

I'll check it out.

Or if you don't mind some extra work, you could do something like Rich Harkness' theater, where he has his projector mounted on a telescoping lift behind the couch.
