Hi members I thought I would post a thread to see if there’s any interest in giving some different views and SW building techniques a format. I know we generally keep our opinions to ourselves, some many would agree being spot on, wrong or indifferent. If there is any interest in a certain subject being brought up just send me a PM and I would be glad to post it at the appropriate time or PM you asking you to post if you like. As things go 20 different subjects can get going at once, so however the wind blows it blows.. if it blows?
I noticed a post the other day by a member that hates mounting rings (I forget the name nor would I say) but it struck me as am I missing something in my understanding/experience with them? (I’ve seen plenty of posts in the past stating the same). Most to all the ID or DIY subs I’ve had employed them. I have only used weather striping once or twice when a ring went bad or the driver came without if I remember correctly? I’ve had to use other type gaskets a driver has come with a few times also. I see some talk the provided mounting ring gaskets aren't good for sealed, but then I only have built a few sealed subs, so possibly I lucked out?? Anyway I know some poo-poo the idea of mounting ring gaskets (not saying your wrong or don’t have good reason) I’m just trying to get a better understanding of this view is all and it could be a help to others. I do know some just don’t like the look, but then others do. Any experiences or views out there that you might share?
