Q
Can the pivot point of the swing arms be move to the other side of the recessed box? Looks like the plate that connects could be turned 180 degrees to allow for this.

I wouldn't stake my life on it, but it looks like you could easily mount it either way. It's an awesome mount system, I love how solid it is and it goes totally perpendicular both directions. Techy friends are impressed!

Q
Can you install the Kanto R500 in the ceiling?
[ Troy  May 15, 2020 ]

NO. It is mounted into a vertical wall. However, it was well worth the price. My builder was blown away with the way it installed vertically and then articulated out int the room
