Title: Crimson Mounts
Post by: AVSMike on January 16, 2020, 08:45:46 PM
We have been working with Crimson to get a custom plate designed for JVC projectors. After reviewing a prototype and requesting some changes, we now have a nice working product. We will be stocking these shortly. The mount is well made and very sturdy. Mount also has gear adjustability at a very competitive price point. The mount attaches to the standard 1.5" threaded pipe. Mount can also be attached directly to a joist and still have gear adjustable rotation. Projector setup is very easy with this mount. See attached pictures.

What do the FOUR adjustment knobs do?

Looks like a nice compact and sturdy mount.

I like the gear adjustment knobs on my Peerless Unv. Some of the early models had complaints about loose fitting gears, mine were real tight, had to put a little Lithium grease on them and run them through full rotation. Works great!

There are three knobs for the usual adjustments of pitch, yaw and roll. The fourth knob is a spring loaded threaded knob that secures the custom projector plate to the mount.

A new mount for my Epson is on my list for this year. The one that I have keeps getting off alignment but I'm sure it has more to do with how it's mounted to the floor joists.

I'm in the basement with a grid ceiling. When my girls walk around upstairs, it's like a herd of wild horses at times. I have tried attaching the mount to the grid itself and now a piece of plywood that's screwed into two of the floor joists. I put some thick foam under it the last time to try and absorb the vibrations but my alignment is off again.

It bugs me but I just deal with it as it is a major pain to adjust and get right.

Looks very nice.  Is that the JR3 version?

Was that designed for the NX series? Even though the mounting holes are the same as the e-shift models, Kris Deering mentioned that the centre of gravity is not.

Worked fine on my JVC, but I did not test to see how close to center it was. If you did want to change the balance point, it would be a simple matter of popping new holes in the custom plate.
