After about 2 minutes practicing on some scraps, I went to town on the BOSS. At most, it took me fifteen minutes to complete... And having that beveled edge really adds some polish to the project!
Seriously, that beveled edge makes it look very professional! Good idea with the JBL stickers, I'll probably add some to mine well.

You will certainly like the BOSS for its realistic and commanding TR. The Auras can be directly mounted to the BOSS platform to supplement TR if space permits. Others who have added shakers to their setups have bolted them directly to their BOSS platforms with reported good results.
The BOSS will be perfect for your apartment also. Late at night, I'll listen to BOSS only without any of my subwoofers in the mix. When seated on my BOSS platforms, it feels like I'm right there in the movie or music when reclined with an LPF of 80Hz. As soon as I stand up, the effect is gone and now I'm just watching the movie or listening to the music. When I walk out of the theater, I can't hear anything and the rest of the family is sound asleep. Pretty awesome!
As always, let us know what we can help with as your design comes into focus.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the detailed response again Tim, much appreciated!
I'm having to learn a lot to put this together, I didn't really have a clue about XLR or speakon connections before, but I sure do now. But I'm a gearhead so I'm enjoying the whole process. Assuming gearhead doesn't just apply to interest in cars.
I think one of the best things about BOSS is how neighbor friendly it appears to be, so that is a huge plus.
I have seen people using Buttkickers and Crowsons with their BOSS systems, but haven't found anybody using Aura's, which is not filling me with great confidence that it's going to add much. Still, I'm leaning towards adding them to my parts-express order and ordering very shortly. I know the Aura's don't have anywhere near the same effect as the other two I mentioned, but I'm not willing to spend much more on transducers right now, I'd sooner put that amount of money towards buying another VTF2-MK5. But I am still very curious if it can add anything to the BOSS, not that it necessarily needs it. So I'll just have to try it, I think otherwise I will always be wondering what it could do. I can then relate my experience once I have it all up and running and tuned to my liking. So I hope I like it, and if not, hopefully I can sell them for not much of a loss, or find some other use for them.
