    What would you recommend? Totally open to input maistro. Afterall this is my first gig.

    I'm trying to find a pic, but there's a trick to use a thin abs plastic around the ring to make it flush. And you can stretch and glue the fabric to that and it's super easy to trim out

    Ohh thats a good idea!

    so you can sand down the plastic that is on top of the ring so that it can sit flush much easier?

    Or are you talking about having a second raised-ring that sits outside of your speaker mounting ring, so the fabric is stretched over that, and it looks like the speaker is "sunken" a bit?

    I think I might get some plastic rings made up for the 06+ boxes and have them do flush mounts. Sounds like a good idea.

    here's a pic to give you an idea of the flushmount concept. This is done with plastic but is easy with wood,you can use 2 rings stacked.

    Then when you stretch the fabric and glass you go up to or a little over the flush ring. Then just trim it out and it looks clean

    So the second ring is really thin, and rides along the exterior portion?

    Cause that it what it looks like to me.

    Then I would glass over the trim ring, building up the glass over where the speaker sits, and then sand it down smooth to where it looks like one clean opening?

    This is just the fabric wetted out...it leaves a nice edge around the speaker

    Re: I went balls-deep in some CDT poon and this is what birthed itself...

    I see. So its really to get a clean edge around the speaker and a nice flat surface to mount to?

    I don't have a router unfortunately (on my list of things to get) but I might have some plastic ones made up.

    Or am I seeing this incorrectly?

    If the price is right, anything is possible.

    But we have to spoon afterwards.

    You're the little spoon.
