Does this come with any brackets need to fly these subs?
Asked by: Julia
No, brackets are not included with the sub. The JBL VRX-AR-II Array Frame (B&H # JBVRXAFII) is the optional suspension frame for the VRX918SP. The system includes the center frame, two side arms, four quick-release pins, two drop levers, and a pair of 3/8" shackles.
