Drill mounting holes before or after baffle is attached?

I've posted this question in various other forms, on various other threads, but I think singling out the question specifically makes some sense.

When putting together a sub cabinet (in my case,...

The amp doesn't need to know, or care, that it is receiving "LFE", it's just input. If you are talking about a specific "pro" amp, it may not have a traditional "RCA" input jack, in which case,...

How typical is this? My cabinets are almost completely built, but I'm waiting on the UM18s to come back in stock at PE.

I've been reluctant to put the front baffle on because I was hoping that...

Nope, but its a fairly large closet, and it's open to the rafters above. There's a slight gap at the bottom above the carpet, so I think there should be enough circulation. Time will tell, but it...

Today I ran a new 15 amp circuit to my HT closet (back corner of the theater). With the iNuke 6000 turned on, and the closet door closed, I have to try to hear it from the MLP. But, that's at idle....

Are you removing the bottom of the case, or are you just adding heat sinks to the bottom of the existing case?

It seems that the bottom of the inuke6000's board is what needs to be cooled.

Has anyone tried drilling some holes in the bottom of the case, and sitting it on top of a "laptop" cooler?

Quick question as I near completion of my two PE 4cu ft. sealed cabinets, and await my dayton um18-22s from PE.

I plan to run these each at 4 ohms, one on each channel of an inuke6000 (non-dsp).

Um, I think that's the entire idea here. If I could make my subwoofer's cabinet actually ABSORB light, I'd be overjoyed.

Okay, I think I'm convinced. It saves a good bit of money and time, and, ultimately, if it is showing reflections, I can put some fabric over it. Basically, cheaper duratex-like path, I guess.

Hmm, seems I could return the bondo, and the Killz sealer, and just go with this stuff. That's a very real possibility.

Did you find that the end-grain of the MDF seemed to suck up the paint at...

Not sure what you are interested in. 8 inches [I think] of pink fluffy, mounted 2" off the ceiling. As I recall, each one of them is 4 foot, by 4 foot.

Thanks. I have plenty of experience with the fabric (I buy mine from JoAnne's fabrics). It's just black muslin, very easy to breath through, especially when stretched out.

Just a warning about those smart strips. The "sensing" outlet needs to see a pretty large power draw in order to detect something being turned on. I've found that most of the pre/pro, and AV...
