Both Home Depot and Lowes have a few different sizes, You can buy a long one and cut it. They are on Amazon too.

Thanks again! So if you buy the french cleat one on amazon you only use the one side of it correct? You don't attach other side to the screen do you?

Hey Big do you use screws in the crossbeam and block to secure it in place? Or does the crossbeam just rest on the block?

it is screwed as well, the blocking pretty much holds it in place while I do the screwing and later just makes it even more secure.

I assume you saw the picture with the speakers raised on stands and the 8 subwoofers.

this picture should only be viewed if you are wearing a bib to protect your shirt from the drool, then consider that there are 8 matching subs along the back wall and you get the idea.

@BIGmouthinDC - I didn't have a bib on, and I was not ready for that pic. Wow! One quick question, what's the benefit of having a stage? Purely aesthetics?

In this case purely aesthetics, but we did make it a bass absorber and it helps elevate the speakers to the correct height, the project has a thread, the White Oaks theater. The subs are DIY by the homeowner

Sixteen 18" subs? I am putting two 18" subs and two SVS 12s into my HT. I feel woefully inadequate. Maybe I need to add a few more 18" subs. Hmmm...
