View Full Version : AI Hydra light mounting classic vs EXT

05/27/2016, 06:21 PM
I'm torn between classic mount and ext mount.

EXT: much cleaner look, easier to hide the wire?

Classic: more flexibility to add more unit/move them around later if needed, can be hung instead of using leg for a little bit more clean-ness?

Also, I'm thinking about using 3x hydra 26 on red sea 525 (60" long 22" deep) for softies and LPS with a few SPS on top. Is this sufficient?

It is kinda funny. I am having the same dilemma right now. I own the classic mount but have the legs for now. I am going to be hanging them soon and can't decide. I personally think I am going with the ext rails just for a cleaner look. The reason my decision was so difficult was the fact that I own the classic mount already.
As far as the 3x hydra 26s go. According to the companies specs they claim to cover a 24x24 spread.

The classic give you a lot more flexibility for adding units and what not. On my 120 I made a rack with 80/20 shapes.
