    Can a 12 be mounted on a 12x12 ?

    Is it possible to mount a 12" that has a 11 1/8 cutout on a 12 x 12 MDF board without the sides overlapping the end of the board??


    I'm going to build a box and need to save as much space as i possibly can.

    just maybe, look on the driver manufacturers site for the sub you have and see what the outside dimension is, or just check it with a ruler/tape measurer.
    and if it is 12 or less than yes, if it is more then no

    also what thickness of mdf are you using? atleast 1/2 i would guess and if that is the case then you have 11" inside of the box so you would need to sand/cut the inside of the walls to acomidate for the cut out dimension
    i would recommend having the sides of the box attached to the sides of the 12x12 so the external is 13" and you shouldnt have to worry about the sub over hanging or it hitting inside the box. but that is just me.

    probably could be done, but youre not gonna want to.

    12" minus 11 1/8" = 7/8". divde that by two = 7/16" on each side of the box. a little bit on the thin side,not to mention the way the box is constructed youre going to run into the sides of the box and the wood that is associated with that.

    just shape the box differently and do it properly...

    most likely not, most 12" subwoofers have a diameter of about 12 1/2" for the total diameter of the sub....
