    No arguing that. Depends on what you want to do. Just sayin' it can be done to good results.

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    Hmm... Mixed emotions about this.. I could look sweet in a "race car" type of look. But I cannot image the sound quality.

    If you have the means why not? I have seen several metal enclosures that worked very well.

    I think the more sensible option would be a wood box with aluminum on the outside but thats just me.
