I want to put my subwoofer about 5 feet up in the air. It's a 2 foot square square box, and weighs ~100lb.

Is it reasonable to mount this much weight onto a single wall, using two studs?




And if so, what's the best way to do it? (How should I build my stand?)

I put the 2x6s in the wrong spot, they need to match the stud locations. This is what I have in mind, please critique:

The stand is ~2' x 2' x 2'. The main braces are 2x6s.

If you edit your post and resize the image to 850 px wide or less, it would eliminate scrolling left to right. If you want to mount the box that high, on the wall, structurally, that method would work. IMO, being attached to the wall would transmit a lot of vibration to the wall.

I have large speakers, and subwoofers, and I get them off the floor with a base.

I have two acoustic research AR-3 speakers mounted just that way. They have been in the same spot for 37 years. They are only about 60
or 7o pounds. I seen no problem with 100 pounds. I used lag bolts to mount.
