    Haha, yeah I might put some of the thread lock on there... I had a small window with the wife gone and I figured I'd ask for forgiveness on this one... Hahahha

    Thing installed in a little over a hour, used a floor jack and my removable panels for the driver mounts worked great

    I actually like the sound better with a smaller cut out, little more upper frequency range but doesn't seem to sacrifice the lower end

    I am having a stainless grate made. Will be 1/2 thick plate, 1/2" holes in a waffle pattern. Outer frame will be 1" wide with a1/4 flange for flooring to butt underneath

    I am definitely going to make the opening smaller, half the size of the picture

    Will mount the second pair of woofers in a few weeks

    Had an extra set of hands yesterday. I was going to mount the other two on the other side if the room but decided there just wasn't enough clearance in the drawl space...

    So we moved the previous two over and mounted the next two beside them. Used the same cut out as before and I see no disadvantage to this. For the money invested, the bass is incredible. Effortless, clean, zero distortion, tight, simply amazing. rbgzuatlct5w.jpg

    Wow -- that looks just like one of my attempts at crafting my own speaker cabinets :)

    Lol, I know right. I literally used scraps of wood and plywood I had laying around. I'm having a 1/2 thick plate of stainless steel to cover it will be nice and discrete

    Looks like a proper infinite baffle installation to me!

    Now just keep those cones dry and moisture free for years of infinite fun :wink:

    Do I need to do anything in the winter? Just curious...

    These subs literally fill my entire house with bass. I can feel low notes in my office area some 30-40 feet away. I love the face it takes up zero floor space... ZERO

    Not sure TBH. I think there are some threads on that somewhere. search "cult of infinite baffle", that comes to mind for some reason...

    Glad your happy with it.

    Sidenote, on another site a bunch of guys are working with FI Audio to build some new versions of his existing subs meant more for HT than Car Audio.

    If I ever had the the option of building a IB setup, I'd be all over it, so consider me jealous :smile:
