    Mount sub and terminal cup before or after carpet??

    Just built a sealed box. Wondering if I should mount the sub and terminal cup before or after I carpet it.?? Would it be an airtight seal if I carpet all the way to the edge of the cut out holes and then mount these over top of the carpet??

    I know you were just messing around. I was saying that it is always good when a bunch of people tell you the same thing, then you KNOW you are getting the correct info. I was just playing around too, i knew what you were up to.....

    Re: Mount sub and terminal cup before or after carpet??

    i heard from someone that a good way to do it is not to cut the hole out, but rather cut slits in the circle like cutting a pie and then put the terminal in there, with the carpet slits still in there, and that is supposed to help seal it up better. that true??

    no not true, if you cut your hole the exact diameter to begin with -you wouldn't be able to get the terminal cup to fit with the carpet on the inside... cut the carpet around the circumference of the hole

    just to assure you some more... cut holes, carpet box, then install sub/terminal
