I am looking into stands for my 3.6's I want something more substantial then anything that is made, so..... I am having one of my very handy metal working friends make a full frame/stand with a full length strut and removeable wing(s), I am also thinking of some sort of X brace support going between the struts, for extra rigidity. And of course it will have a network of holes to allow filling with lead, sand or steel shot. I am leaning towards audio points for the bases. After all of this I should be under the price of the Mye stands(which I have heard from a number of people are very nice), then all I have to do is finish them, which I can take care of myself. I think the reason Grant doesn't do something like this is because it would be very expensive retail(probably around the cost of a 1.6) and it would be hard to ship not to mention time consuming to make. My custom stands would be a little more work though not much more money, I am not affraid of the work- I am asking if you think my design will yield enough benefit to make it worth the out lay of resources(i.e. my time). The frame/supports will use the holes drilled on the verticle- all 3 rows of them and join them at the top and bottom, and have a strut from the back of the bottom(the furthest rear spot of the foot/base) to the top- possibly with bracing depending how strong it is with out. I am leaning towards 1" square steel tube- possibly a little bigger. The wing I am still researching, but it seems like it is worth the trouble, I will be doing some experimenting this weekend with a make shift wing :) I would love anyone's insight on this project.
