I made a BOSS riser with the drivers flush mounted. I plan to carpet it today and was wondering if I need to cut holes in the carpet for the drivers. I asked in the BOSS thread also but no answer yet. thanks for answering.
I would think if you didn't have holes, the speaker would rattle against the bottom of the carpet. Even worse, the surrounds would rub against the bottom of the carpet, which is quite abrasive, and it would quickly destroy the surrounds on the speaker. I would definitely cut them out.
