Our take on the Sanus VMXA1 Adapter Bracket by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The WMXA1 adapter bracket is designed for use with the Sanus VMPL3 plasma/LCD TV wall mount. The adapter adds extra width to the mount so it can accommodate a wider variety of TVs, including 65" Panasonic plasmas.
Will this mount work with my TV?

Where do I drill the holes?
Tell the Sanus HeightFinder Installation Assistant how high you want your TV, and it tells you exactly where to drill.
I ordered the VMXA1 from Crutchfield to use with a Panasonic P65VT30 65" plasma installation on a Sanus VMPL3. The VMXA1 allows for more flexibility in using 3 wall studs and still allowing for left to right adjustment. Excellent product support and transaction from Crutchfield, couldn't be happier.

Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Sanus VMXA1 expansion plate replaces the center plate provided with the VMPL3 bracket (item 051VMPL3B). The VMXA1 is 8" wider than the center plate included with the VMPL3, and it's designed to hold up to 280 lbs. When the VMXA1 center plate is used, it allows the overall width of the Sanus VMPL3 wall mount assembly to be adjusted from 35" to 50". With the expansion plate in place, the VMPL3 will work with TVs that have a horizontal mounting hole spacing as wide as 48.5". The vertical hole spacing of up to 25.625" for the VMPL3 stays the same. The VMXA1 center-plate is constructed of heavy-gauge steel with a durable powder coated black finish. The VMXA1 uses the same hardware as the original VMPL3 center plate, so no additional hardware is needed.
