I have two questions about my new KRP-500:
1. I am looking into the KRP-WM02 "Ultra Slim Profile Wall Mount". I'm curious if anyone is using this mount and if so does it allow sufficient air movement for proper cooling. Since it is designed by Pioneer I would "assume" they have researched this and it is a non-issue. Any opinions on this? Also the installation instructions show a safety wire used to prevent the display from falling even if it is pulled off the mount. Has anyone installed this backup safety cable? Where did you get the cable and wall hardware?

The mounts screw holes ARE NOT 16 inches away (actually ~11 inches) so you may need to get creative when installing this mount. I ended up screwing holes into the mount to make it work.

I've never used the Pioneer mount, but I find it odd that they don't even have 16" mounting holes, sounds like a terrible design. I've owned several Chief mounts both for projectors and plasmas. They are excellent quality and typically very easy to mount and use. The only drawback is the price. Depending on the room layout, you may not need an ultra-slim mount like the chief (.4").
I have two KRP-500Ms. One is mounted using this monoprice low-profile mount.http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...#specification
Its slim at 1.25" from the wall. With the room layout, it really looks flush with the wall from all angles except directly from the side (where it still looks extremely thin). I honestly don't know how I would be able to connect power and cables if it were any closer to the wall. Works great and very heavy duty. Similar quality to my Chief mounts. Amazing value for $19.
My other KRP-500m is on this articulating arm mount ...http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
Again, for $72, its an amazing value. Very heavy-duty construction, easy to mount, no sag at all with the 500M.
