    wow thats frigging awesome!! thats about the idea i had.. but without the mic and whatever else ya got going on there. i def take a closer look at all that. looks very interesting.i never thought of hanging the driver on bungee cords like that. thats a totally new approach . i was figuring on mounting the driver on a round sound board . just took a peek at the pics etc. im very familiar with 1812. ive performed it several times. believe it or not im a musician ( trumpet) and often wondered what it be like to design and build stereo speakers resembling the instruments they are reproducing. of course , you cant (and dont) build a separate design for every instrument in an orchestra, or even a rock band . but sounds cool.. just for the aesthetics. imagine a sub driver mounted in a tuba, or a tweeter in a flute. lmao! back to reality .i greatly appreciate your interest and especially your knowledge !

      Not to confuse you... the pictures I posted were examples of what others have done to mic their bass drum for live sound. In your case, You will want to make a 2 board thick circular baffle with the inner baffle smaller so that it will fit inside of the shell. Then you can glue and maybe screw it in place. Just follow the DIY sonotube posts around the web. There are tons of them out there. Post up your build. Good luck with it.
