    When I install the subwoofer do I remove the carpet?

    Hi I'm going to install a sealed subwoofer, so my box is fully carpeted, but shouldn't it be air tight so should I remove the carpet where the subwoofer touches it so it seals well?

    get a old bike tube and cut it to a strip. then put the strip on top of the carpet and then screw it down real good. thats what i do and they have bin ok.

    a good way to test it, is fill the box with water, then mount the woofer and see if the water leaks out where the woofer meets the carpet , if it doesnt, take the woofer back out , drain the water, and remount the woofer with no worries

    whatever makes the best seal, if the holes a bit big carpets good, if the holes tight carpet will be in the way, use your best thinking

    make sure you let the water sit in the box for a while to make sure the wood absorbs it for best results
