Those pics didn't turn out very well, I'll have to get the camera out for some better shots up.....

To me these are the finest bass drivers made, paired with clean massive power in well build cabinets...winning combination.
I use PL380's and iTech8000 to power my army of LMS 5400 Ultra beats.
I tell you right now...HUGE HAPPY FACE awaits when you set them up, fine tune...all working in unison...huge happy face.
All these commercial sealed subs...hah they have not much on these.
Agreed, nothing in the commercial world can compete with the quantity and quality these drivers deliver. NOTHING !! Good power supply and sources, the ultimate on SQ and performance.

Absolutely stunning subs P. Wow. Congrats!!! That is pretty much bass nirvana. My God those boxes are huge!!
I don't think you got it all that bad, your subs are great and you worked really hard at getting really good results from going the whole nine yards with setup, measurements EQ....

Did you use some sort of hook or wire to lower the drivers into opening? Did you use the TC supplied wood screws?
I have a pair that will show up tomorrow and was wondering the best way to mount the driver without losing a couple of fingertips.
Make sure the outer baffles are at least 1/4" at least larger then the rubber mounting gasket, they drop in pretty easy...
I remove the rubber mounting gasket, set the basket in the hole. make the measurements, and line up the TC Sounds imprint so its level. Drill the tap holes with a small bit sized for the factory wood screws. Then thread the holes with the factory wood screws, running them in and out a couple times. Put painters tape down and make a mark on them with a line showing where the holes are. I used closed cell weather stripping to prevent leaks on the inner baffle (1/4" x 3/4").
Super glue the rubber gasket onto the basket (bottom side small line of drips in between mount holes. Set basket into baffle on one side, start too align holes and lower down onto a thick plastic spatula, which is the last thing you pull out. Painters tape a few levels thick in place should keep box baffle edge from being scraped.
Extra hands are always a plus - these things are @ 80lbs...
