To tilt or not....?


Well-known Member
Hi Guys

Just bought a 42" Panny PX80 from Richer Sounds in sunny Belfast and am going to mount it on the wall above the fireplace. I already have a projector in the room so this will be for casual TV viewing (escaping from the kids !). I will be mounting this at 150 cm above the floor and would obviously prefer it to be as close to the wall as possible. Hence the question, to tilt or not? The cables are already chased into the walls and the room has been lined and is now awaiting the wallpaper. So any advice asap would be great. Viewing distance is 11feet.

Many thanks

At that height and distance I think you may need some tilt on the TV although it will depend on weather the 150cm dimension is to the middle or bottom edge of the screen to how much you will need to tilt it. Also tilting brackets can be left flat so you have all angles covered !! I would recommend the following this has our Click Lock system which locks the screen into place without the use of screws that are often difficult to get to, it can also be removed easily for changing or connecting new cables. :thumbsup:

Hi. Again, it depends whether you height is to the bottom or to the centre of the screen. If it's to the centre of the screen then you'll get away with having no tilt, thus being able to get your TV flatter to the wall. If your 150cm is to the bottom of the screen then you'll need between 5 and 10 degrees of tilt. If you have the TV tilted all the time then the depth of the bracket is less of an issue as your TV will need the depth to tilt, if that makes sense...

We have a flat bracket here which is 32mm deep.

Our tilting bracket here is 60mm deep which will allow a 42" up to 15 degrees of tilt up or down. You can easily tilt the TV upwards to access cables without having to undo fixings or remove the TV from the wall.

Best Regards
