Those mounts work sideways? On the Genelec 8030s? How does that work? The mount is affixed via a metal undercarriage beneath the speaker itself...  I don't see how you can use it differently.

I haven't tried it's based on someone telling me. Then there's this:

I assume they unscrewed it. I'm not changing my vertical setup however. I don't have enough experience now to be fooling with conventional wisdom just yet :)

Me neither. And with the upright stance the metal mount for the isolation mount itself is screwed into the cabinet. I guess you could rest 'em sideways but they'd just be sitting on the mount... a little less secure.

Try upside down, to simulate my "bungee" solution.  ;D

anyone notice UA seems to be having a lot of sales? Is it just me or? Now they have 40% off 40 analog plugins. Pretty sweet deals really. Seems nuts to pay full price for any of them.

My eye has been on the fender tweed and it's on for 119. Sweet sounding amp!

I'm sitting this one out. But you're right - they have frequent sales and it's best to wait. You never have to wait too terribly long.

Me, I'm waiting until one of those Apollo quad or octo hardware units are on sale. I just missed it last go-round. I figure I could use the processor muscle more right now than I need more UA plugins.

But I'm starting a new gig, so I'm looking down the road.

right. There was a time I had crazy thoughts of a second apollo, when they offered a free satellite with a purchase of a rack. But they ended that promotion and I thankfully regained my senses. :)

I'm too poor to buy any more plugins right now, plus I have a lot of them and an octo satellite so I'm pretty covered on that front.  All my funds just went towards a new car as our old one died a sudden and unexpected death (rear differential on an all wheel drive vehicle).  Parts and labour to replace were waaaaaay over what we would be willing to put into the car ($3k++ for a used part and $5k++ for a new part).  So we broke the bank and bought a very nice brand new vehicle so my budget is shot for years to come LOL.
