For those of you with the AP9X and have a center external overflow how did you mount it? I don't want to use the cable kit. Thanks in advance pictures are appreciated!

I am not an AP 9x user yet but I did get one I am hoping on using for a new build soon. How wide is your external overflow? In addition to the single AP9x arm you can also use 2 A series arms. If the box is narrow enough the arms may be able to rest on either side of the box. I would also not rule out mounting off the wall.

Thanks for the reply the external box is 16" and cant mount on the wall because its wood panel and would have to have to drill on the wall. I may have to find a more "creative" way to set it up

If you are not concerned with the distance from the wall you could always just attach to the back of the overflow.

As I think of this I imagine Kessil support saying that some people would do 2 360Xs pver the AP9x.

Is there a reason you are against suspending the light? I have suspended lights and really like it.

My kessils are in a floating canopy and I have 9 foot ceilings. I think it may work better than you think. The cables can look very minimal.
