Hi guys,

I'm sure this is nothing new to anyone and almost everyone has casters on these monsters. Is there a DIY or a "what to do and what not to do" instructions for installing casters on JBL SRX728s? Any pointers? Weak spots I should look out for?

Thanks.

I invested in an $80 dolly from Sams Club and skipped the whole castor project. I often end up standing the unit up on end anyway to go around some corners and doors and the castors would likely get in the way.

Yes, I bolted the whole board to the box.  4 bolts total through of 1 of the 4 holes in each caster.  Same as typical on roadcases. 

I believe I bought a half gallon pail of Duratex - but it may have been a gallon??  It was a regular item at their online store.  I also bought their foam rollers.

I didn't do covers.  I wanted to but didn't.  I did get quotes from both Cloud9 and Undercover.   I use a large area rug in the trailer to insulate the boxes against scuffs/scratches from road cases.  It works in my pack and is probably quicker.

Thanks Terry. That's good information.

It was probably a gallon since that's the only thing I saw that they offer. I think that would be great though because I could use the left overs to cover my speaker stands.

I do want to keep some covers on them though, so I'll probably go that route but not bolt them on to the cabs.

Also, I forgot to ask, what is the thickness of the boards? 3/4"?

2 coats on 4 boards took less than a half gallon. 

The boards are 3/4". 

You can get custom covers for your boxes to ride speakers up.  Its only marginally more and likely better quality than "factory" covers.

I have two subs, so I should have plenty left.

I was actually looking to get some Tuki covers for them. I have them for my QRx's and I love them. I can contact them though to see if they can make them a bit bigger to work with the casters. Thanks!
