    Re: aluminum sub box?!?!

    A guy at work was telling me he was going to try this out.........I only hope he completes it so I can laugh in his face when it's a fail. I'm sure if the metal were thick enough and very well braced and deadened it could work but that would be crazy expensive with no real benefit. The guy at work was talking about using thin steel

    I would jump on that, scrap the aluminum, sell the subs and enjoy the profits

    Aluminum enclosure can be awesome when done correctly. I think this is funkywaves(?).

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

    Of course... But look how thick that is. And the benefits definitely aren't worth the cost
