Infact, your MDF 3.0 and 3.5 boxes for 15 inchers were braced that way, basically. Or would the verticals then be too far to the sides for the LMS? It would be great for the Dayton, anyhow.
I thought about that and did draw it up. But the magnet is about 11" wide. Inside the box is 18.5" wide. So the vertical braces would literally be about 3.5" away from the corners and wall, which is the strongest part of the box already.
If the box was 2" deeper, then we would be up to the volume in the beginning of the thread where people said it was too much for the LMS. 4.25cuft will be about 4.05 net, probably closer to 4. That seemed to be exactly what people were wanting for the LMS.
I think either way this is done, we're going to need 1 box size with 2 different brace styles to accommodate either an amplifier of the back panel, or a deep magnet off the front panel.
The only other way to do it would be to use 8 of those 'L' style braces.
I need to draw up a brace to show how far back the the cross member would be in the LMS box, then decide if it's even needed at that depth. I'll try to do that this morning so we can decide. I have to send these designs in very soon because the other sub boxes are getting cut and they need to be done at the same time.Edited by Erich H - 11/20/12 at 6:35am
