Thanks. I'm a bit of a College Football nut, long wanted a way to watch multiple games simultaneously. I put that together about 7 years ago now, built the speakers/subs/AV stand last year.

Sub builds: Yet another Infinity 1260 build | Twins! | Modified V.B.S.S. build | UM12-22 builds | AV stand and sealed UM18s

Speaker builds: DIYSG HTM-10 build | DIYSG Volt-6 build | DIYSG Fusion-8 builds

Have 3 younger kids running around the house so I keep grilles on any subwoofers to protect the cones from incidental damage. Also use grilles on my dual 12's inside my truck, even though they're downfiring the grilles keep debris away and prevent accidental damage from a foot or a kid's toy.

Grills on, to minimize any chance of damage to the cones, since we have 9 folks in the house now due to C-19. I guess I'll go vote on the poll now

Peace and blessings,
