    Which do I cut?

    When making a box do I cut an 11 or 12 inch circle for a 12?

    Definitely not a 12. It could be 11, could be different, depends on the sub itself. What kind of sub are we talking about?

    Don't cut the 12" circle.

    The driver should have a "cutout diameter" ... whether it be on a spec/installation sheet that came with it, or somewhere on the manufacturers website.

    Re: Which do I cut?

    cut it just enough so that the sub can be mounted on...cut out diameter is what you are looking for...i'm guessing 11 1/6 inches is the cutout diameter, at least that's what mine was for a 12

    Most 12'' woofers I have delt with fit in a 11.25 circle perfectly.

    Re: Which do I cut?

    Word of advice.....don't always trust manufacturer's sites. For example, the .pdf for the Brahma on Adire's site listed the cut-out diameter for the 10" Brahma to be 9" when it was really 9.5" An honest mistake on Adire's part, but a mistake none-the-less.

    Well I didn't know if it was measured from like, the end of the cone(I think that's what it is anyway) to the other end, or if 12 was the measurement of the whole thing, including the mounting bracket things, and now I know it is.
