28.2 inches tall, 7.6 inches wide, 3.5 inches deep.
The recessed box needs to be mounted exactly centered, if you want your TV to be centered. Due to the TV being leveled by it's own weight, sliding the TV may throw off the weight distribution.
If you have a stud dead center, you want to cut out the center stud and place the RB100 within that section. You would then purchase/use our RBE10 accessory which are extension brackets that will allow you to catch the two far studs on the left and right of where the centered stud was.
Is it acceptable to build a stud cavity to fit the box in and mount it directly to the studs that way?
What dimensions would that cavity need to be?
It is perfect fine to build a stud cavity to fit the RB100. Normally, I recommend using the RB100 as a template for the best results in regards to framing the area for the RB100. That said, the RB100 is 28.25" tall, 7.4" wide and 3.7" deep.
However this diagram seems to indicate that a 50 degree swivel in one direction is still possible: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0758/7331/files/MM540__RB100_SSB40_SpecDiagram_548ee96a-bdba-4d0c-8481-ac312f1013a3.pdf?8135
Which one is it?
MM540 with the Recess Box:
MM540 Without Recess Box:
I hope this response finds you well. If you would like to install the RB100 without the horizontal braces being visible, you will need to frame out the wall to fit the RB100. This entails using the RB100 as a template and framing studs around the RB100.
