    Fedex Delivers early birthday present

    Got my new Rainbow CMX 265 Kick's today from Don today. Just need to wait till when its not 5 degrees outside to install them. Lucky for me and my hands, my friend has a insulated garage. Also gotta wait on my 880PRS and my RAAMmat and Ensolite to come as well.















    Got my MDF rings all ready to go

    Congrats, man! I've got a set of CMX Kicks, also, and I love 'em.

    How thick are your MDF rings? 1/2"?

    Why would you say he should flush mount the mids? I've got my CMX Kick mids flush mounted right now, but I was considering mounting them onto MDF spacers, myself.

    Is there a reason in particular to flush mount over using the MDF rings?

    Flush mount them to where? The door panel? And Im going to be running these active so I wont have a passive crossover. I am getting a Pioneer 880PRS to control all that.

    Yeah, my passive xovers for this set are still sitting in the original box, too. I'm running mine active with an Alpine 7998. I've ran these passive before, and they sound MUCH better and more powerful when run active.

    You have a 4-channel amp to run them or (2) 2-Channels? I already got a JL 300/2 and am currently looking for another 2-channel for the tweets or just buy a nice 4-Channel.

    Flush mount it with the MDF ring...I did it with my Dayton RS180's and it looks really good(even though you normally can't see it). Plus you're using 3/4 MDF, so cutting it down to 5/8 or so isn't going to hurt it's structural integrity.

    See above for flush mount answer.

    Don't get the 880, RCA noise will kill you...

    I've got an older Alpine 5 channel that's powering everything. I've got a 12" sub in a sealed box being powered on the 5th channel.

    Here's my amp:

    Excuse my ignorance, but the mids being held up with the MDF rings as pictured wouldn't be considered flush mounting?

    I already had an 800, didn't blow the fuse, and it was a pain sometimes...definitely like my 8053 more than the 880...there's really no comparison in SQ.

    Flush mounting consists of making the flange of the basket(part with the mounting holes), flush with the mounting surface. Using a router, flsuh mounting with MDF is a breeze.
