    Hanging heavy speakers

    Thougt you might like to see how I mounted the rear speakers in system 2. Too heavy for most brackets, so I built hanging shelves with mdf and coated aircraft cables. Did this for a heavy TV years ago. With the top parts in an attic, all you see are the 4 cables coming down. Cheap and reasonably easy.

    Much better solution than the guys do with 901's.... try finding a set with no Chain attachment holes in them.

    , Dude, you and Jani ever watched 'Female Trouble'? A classic John Waters movie from the '70's. "I've never used macrame to kill before" was one of my fav lines among many, many others!! I actually made some for my friends 901's, have to say they looked good, there was some beading and some hemp was used as well
