    Magnet cut out?

    I am trying to get extra depth in my truck box and was wondering if I could cut out a section where the magnet of the subs comes in contact with the back of the box? I would then replace that small section with something like 1/4in to seal it up.

    I was thinking of routering a 1/4 lip then glueing in the 1/4in board.

    Have others done this?

    Why do you want to put another piece of wood back after you rout it out? You just will make it useless.



    EVERYONE has common sense, but its the stupid ones who dont follow it.

    I want to cut the hole then route a lip on the back of the box. Then basically plug that hole with 1/4in piece of wood. So I essentially gain 1/2 mounting depth becasue the box would be made out of 3/4.

    saw something like this on here before. But he just cut into the wood a little and did not have it sticking out of the back

    Re: Magnet cut out?

    Ok so the box is made already? It looks like you have it figured out. Personally I would just make a new box. You can also make a ring for the sub to sit on to take away some depth. Seems easier that way IMHO.

    Re: Magnet cut out?

    I cant go any bigger than 8" Depth on bottom and 6" depth on top of my box. Thats my constraints behind the seat. That gives me about 6 1/2" mounting depth on a 10" sub. I wanted to have 7" mounting depth sub JL10W6v2. If I cheated the magnet into the back wall some I could fit it I think.

    I have never done this so I just wanted to see if others have and how it worked out.

    I've seen this done before, should be fine. If the pole is vented on the sub though, make sure there's still enough room for air to circulate..

    we did this on some of the treo boxes. we cut a 10 round hole where the magnet would be then took a 12in cut out and glued it over the 10in hole.
