How where the bars placed, and how are they placed now? (any images)
I thought there is only one way to assamble the snare stand.

i am sure i mounted the snarestand in the correct way and find it very unstable too.
Not only do i need to tighten all the screws at least once every session but the whole pad moves down after an hour or so of playing and needs to be raised again to the correct height.
I finally gave up and ordered a regular snarestand. Cost 25 euro and works a 1000 times better.

Correct

Although I can't deny some of the 2box problems ...

- 2Box needs some time and must have a chance to improve things. Perhaps this is also the reason why we still don't see large shipments. Perhaps the guys just work on a better production behind the scenes. But i would be wise and trusting to publish about that
- other companies (like Roland) had major problems as well when they came out. The Roland TD-10 module had serious noise, a unstable power and the rack system was very bad. Not to talk about the sounds. And realize Roland had the DDR-30, TD-5, TD-7 and several modules, drumcomputers before, so it wasn't a real fresh company. Through the years the Roland hardware and playability became better.
- I wonder how hard/intense some people bang on their drums. Some people even destroy Sonor hardware and Zildjian Z cymbals

But again: some 2Box things need to be imrpoved. No discussion about that

2Box has a fair price.
It sounds cheap when comparing it with other brands.
But are these expensive brands not overpriced?

Absolutly. From what I see 2box is the only one IMO (even though there are still problems) offering high quality at a fair price.

It's all about the sound yup - The snare stand while a good conceptual thought is a poor long term design and was rushed through with quick testing I suspect. Mine was good for a week and is deteriorating with increased flexability. Gibraltar and other racks are all similar, re-inveting the wheel for something unique is understandable but not practical. A basket with a long single post clamped on would work and also not need the bar post as the basket base could provide the support.  If your a real light player mostly at home the snare mount would work but if your an emotional player that likes to hit the snare a bit a regular snare stand will be necessary. The rest of the rack seems highly adaquate - the sounds are so superior it makes the snare stand only a minor fustration for me. Putting the 2box brushed bars on chrome legs looks a little off to me I may dig out my ddrum3 gibraltar rack and see what fits.

The snare stand seems to be really shaky. Do you think it's a setup problem ?

I chose to use a separate stand myself, but at least in my kit, the 2box snare stand was definitely not as shaky as in this video.
