I had this idea and it turned out great. I took a 12” pad and reworked the trigger point, added foam and welded up an aluminum stand for it. The top mount mounts to the cross bar on my rack and there is zero movement. Have used it now on my weekend gigs for 2 years and still sounds and acts great. The first pic was a prototype but it needed a bigger base and feet like in the lower pics
