    i bout the ikea uppleva tv mount for my cabinet. it's all gone together fine, however the vesa mount on the back of my TV is very narrow. 100x200 i think. this has resulted in the two brackets being very close to each other. does this look like it'll be secure enough? it's a sony kd-43xd8305.

    Question Is there a sub that fits and works in an IKEA Kallax unit? 🤔

    I think the only real place I can fit a sub in my living room would be in a slot of my IKEA Kallax unit. Is there anything that would fit/work? I imagine it'd have to be forward firing and maybe forward ported? The space is 33cm cubed. Any pointers appreciated.
