I just built my box exactly to kicker specifications for the L5 12". its made of MDF and i used the right screws, predrilled the holes, etc. I was wondering though, some places, even crutchfield, say that carpeting your box is pretty much a basic required step. 1) i dont have carpet 2) im lazy as hell.
Is there something that must go around the opening to ensure maximum sealment between the box and the sub? the L5 has a nice rubber perimeter.
Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
