    subwoofer mounting question

    Just had dimensions given to me for a sub box but wanted to know does the following matter.

    The height of the box given to me in the build is 15in high & the sub going in it is a 15in.

    I can mount it but the top & bottom screws of the subwoofer will have to be screwed into the top & bottom of the box. The rest obviously screw into the front panel of the box fine. IS THIS A PROBLEM PLEASE as im in the middle of finishing the box.

    Re: subwoofer mounting question

    is this one u are making. if so you can do a slant in the front making the front panel bigger to fit a bigger sub. i've done that a few times and it works great.

    Re: subwoofer mounting question

    You should be ok if the follow are true

    The screws in the top and bottom go in straight and stay in the top and bottom pieces of the box.

    If all parts of the sub that are going into the box don't touch the top, bottom, and back. the back of the sub can't be very close. to a port wall or back of enclosure.
