Most people aren't using them so...

It's easier not to include them from now on.

So they are basically ornamental ?

No, most people use a different type of gasket.

I have used this https://www.parts-express.com/parts-...-roll--260-542 just beware for enclosures that flush mount the sub it can be a PAIN to get them out. Practically, glues them in

I believe Erich is including the gasket in the flatpack kit!

Thank You Erich!

The first run of the Baltic birch cabinets comes with the gasket. I bought enough from Stereo Integrity and include them with the flat pack. I need to make a note about it only being with the first run though.

When they first came out I asked Stereo Integrity if these were the same diameter as the previous model and they thought I just meant the inner hole cutout. But the outer hole recess diameter is less because the new subs have a stamped frame and no gasket. Instead of getting new front baffles cut and repackage everything, the easiest fix was to just get the thick gaskets and include them with the flat packs.

The next run will not have them though.

Hey eng, after the route did the actual diameter of the hole end up being 16-9/16" too or was it a little bigger? The site says 16.7", that would be closer to a tad heavier than 16-11/16". The tighter the better though. Thanks in advance.

The sub was really snug with the hole cut out being 16-9/16. If you make it that size it's the tightest fit for that sub. You can try the next size down but there was no wiggle room left with the cut out being 16-9/16 so I think you would run into a problem. This was cut again with my Bosch router using a jasper jig and 1/4 cut bit for it. Hope this helps.

I marked 11/16ths and cut the line which ended up closer .750 and there seemed to be plenty of room on mine.....my best guess is the 11/16ths number has maybe a 1/8th inch of clearance/room built into that measurement......1/16 clearance all the way around or 1/8th total.

I broke out both of the V.2's I picked up a few weeks ago today for some free-air/break-in fun with my Inuke 6k. I ran thru some tones and sweeps with REW then a few Bassotronics tracks just playing around and prob got to about 3/4 Xmax or so. Both drivers were strikingly smooth and quiet to as far as I was comfortable pushing things.

It really is insane IMHO that you can buy this much driver for this kind of money.
@Electrodynamic you have outdone yourself sir......again. In today's $ I don't know how you could beat the deep bass value on tap in the Ht-18 v.2

Thank you Nick for all your DIY community support and world class products.
I would not have the system I do today or will tomorrow(once I build the new enclosures) without the original Ht-18 or the V.2!

Hey guys, I just ordered 2 HT18s and should receive them tomorrow and i just built 2 martycubes. Please validate my setup as these will be added to my existing 2 subs. Upfront in my theater i have dual SVS PC13 ultras (required due to small footprint) connected to my Denon 6200 which has audyssey multieq xt32 which has dual sub outs. I will use a Y spliter and run my 2 SVSs to sub out 1. For my SI HT18 martycubes, I am planning on getting a Crown XLS 2502 and will connect to the Sub 2 out from my Denon and split into Input 1 and Input 2 for the Crown. I will then wire the HT18s in Stereo. Prior to Audyssey I will level set the trim for each sub then run Audyssey xt32. Is this plan sound? Thanks!
