Since my last posting, more experimenting has taken place.
A plexiglass front cover over the front of the TV was added for protection and the TV sounded muffled. I determined that rebuilding the box housing was in order.
The design was made to let the sound out of the box on the sides and bottom.
The mounting bar for the TV was also redesigned smaller and more compact. The handles were added to help adjust the angle of the TV since using the TV as an adjustment handle is not a good idea.
This large wing nut is used to lock the mounting bar in the correct position.
The test fitting of the TV went well.
Next, 3 nails were attached to the top front edge of the new box to make a tool-less front plexiglass panel attachment.
Here the front pexiglass panel is being test fitted on the 3 nails. The panel simply slips ON and OFF.
Here is the TV in itʻs new housing. Initially the front plexiglass did not have the holes you see on the lower edge. The sound from the TV still needed a direct exit so they were cut and it didnʻt interfere with the TV picture.
Hope you can use these ideas.
Thanks for looking.
