Anyone have experience with the Sanus VP1-B1 mount? The guy at best buy said it would work with my JVC. The weight limit is 35 lbs which is about the projector weight.

Is this a good mount? Will it fit?

I've got Best Buy gifcards so I'm trying to get my mount from there. It comes with a 2" pipe so it can be pretty low profile.

I'll answer my own question, it turns out that BB has Chief mounts so I went with that. Same price but much higher weight rating. It's the Chief RPAU.

The RPAU is not compatible with the RS45. You need the Chief RPA281 or RPMA281. You can also get the "B" and "C" versions of the RPM(A)281.

To clarify, its the U part of the mount, the small plate that secures the legs that themselves attach to the projector. The plate can be made to work if you mount it horizontally across the projector width and are willing to drill a small hole. A better solution is to abandon the U (the universal legs and leg securing plate) and instead use a dedicated mounting plate Now no legs are used. the mounting plate is the 281 part of the mount number..RPA281. The plate can be ordered separately or as a package with the RPA etc.

I've come to not like the Universal mount nearly as much as the projector specific mounts, even if they do fit / work with a projector. Why? The plates on the projector specific mounts are much more solid and don't flex like the arms on the universal mounts can. Why is that important? It might not make any difference. But it could. Install two SVS PC13 Ultra subs and watch something with loads of LFE in your theater...............better hope those universal arms don't flex ! eek.gif
