Not knowing what your tight installation would look like, be aware that the t.v. will require approximately 4 inches of clearance to allow proper venting of heat from the unit while it is operating. With regards to the feet measurements. . . I myself was concerned about placement onto a 36 inch t.v.stand, however when the unit was placed onto the stand, it fit very nicely, with plenty of room to spare. My t.v. is NOT in an enclosed space, such as an entertainment center. . . . it sits on a stand in the open, with plenty of room to vent heat and circulate air around the room. . . and I like it.
