  • Display Sub Bracket

    I played around and made a holder that slides onto a bracket that will hold my subs on the wall. I was jumping around not sure what width of shelf I needed because of the different widths of subs, so I decided with no shelf.
    There are holes in the holder that will lineup with the bracket frame and a bolt can be run through it to secure it. I might have to make a different holder for the german and US WWII subs because of the keel. More testing will be needed.

    I had brackets and got worried when I went to pick up more brackets because some brackets did not have the narrow support beam and the holder would not slide on. Then again maybe I will play with a two piece frame that can be bolted together, hmmmm. More to ponder on!
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

      Thank you! I like what you did. It is even cleaner, maybe I will try "L" angles.
