    Re: Sub cutout

    you'll need a 9.1" diameter. 4.55" radius.

    Re: Sub cutout

    just becuase it is a 12" sub dont mean you'll need to make a sub cutout of 12". your sub will end up just sink in the hole.

    Re: Sub cutout

    like livinlife said a 12" sub doesn't need a 12" cut out. Easy way to flush mount subs is to use a double baffle.

    radius is half diameter. So 9.1 / 2 = 4.55"

    so would i cut the first baffle out at 12inches? then the second one at 9.5?

    Re: Sub cutout

    Yeah, the first cutout is for the sub to mount in then the second baffle needs to go around the sub so it needs to be 12 inches. I would go a little bigger than 12 though, maybe 13 or so. That way you can get it out easier and move it around once you drop it in.

    Re: Sub cutout

    its easier to cut, i suppose, with the radius then diameter... just use a thin cardboard paper and make two points, 4.55" radius in between, and DRAW!

    ^Like he said . But I usually oversize by a 1/4" just so the sub doesn't fight me
