    Hi all

    I have now ordered my 42" panny px60 and also a vogals 6345 bracket wnat i need to know is any idea of hight and where the bracket should be to get the correct hight?

    I will be siting on a normal sofa 12 foot from screen i have a 600mm high av rack under it which i want to stand the MA bronze centre speaker on i will have MA bronze B4s each side of the unit so screen needs to be higher than top of speakers.

    Also should i wall mount the centre to bring it more in line with the B4s?

    The vogals 6345 instructions are very plain and as i will not get the panel untll the job is done i need to know where to put the bracket in hight to get the desired hight for the screen?

    Any help plz :)

    shane

    i just mounted my 42pwd8 last week, i sat on the sofa and measured my eye level with a tape measure, i installed the mount aiming to have the screen centre at eye level, it looks fine to me when viewing it but for some reason it looks odd at that height cause im used to pictures etc hanging higher on the wall, for viewing its just right for me, im not looking up or down which can only be good.

    I know a lot of people go for above the fireplace but i think its too high for me.

    mystic_bertie - out of curiosity, are you happy with your PWD8 ? (I've got one on order)
    Sorry for highjacking the thread.

    I have contacted vogals about this and they say not to use them all as they are close to each other you weaken the wall by driling in to many places too close and the instructions are fine only use the holes it say
