    Radion Gen 3 mounting

    About to pickup a set of Radion Gen 3 Pros and was wondering if anyone has a DIY mounting bracket schematic they could share? Instead of shelling out the $80.00 for the rail and another $40.00 for the 2 slide mounts I was thinking c channels from homedepot. I'm currently running the cheap 24" led boxes from ebay with orbits as supplements. The orbits are under the hood mounted while the black boxes are mounted above the canopy spewing light from holes cut to fit.

    Nice. Do you see a difference between running them horizontal to the front of your tank vs parallel?

    The reason I have them front and back is because my tank is 30" deep so more coverage than horizontal.
