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.

Has anyone used a foam roller with the restore 4x? I've only seen comments of using 3/8" nap.

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...

To be a bit more specific, the 6k is really 2 3ks *which are already bridged*.

That means the 3k will drive a 2 ohm load safely, while each channel of the 6k isn't rated for 2 ohms.

It might...

Does your AV Receiver/Pre-Pro have a remote trigger? Many do.

And if it does, I've found that this works perfectly.

The instructions for putting together the 18", 4 cu ft. sealed box, in both cases (PE, and DIY - they look to be identical) has, as the last step, affixing the front baffle to the completed box.
