In my 4 way towers, the 10" sub is side firing outwards from the tv cabinet on both towers. It will be mounted no more than 6" from the floor. The drivers on the front baffle are all flush mounted and the baffle edges are all tapered and rounded. Do I need to flush mount the side woofer, or can I simply mount it in the hole on the surface of the MDF(the old fashioned way)? Will this make any difference in the sound? The sub will only be receiving the LFE frequencies?

Thanks,

Raphael

There isn't much benefit to flush-mounting a subwoofer driver (but some people like the looks of the flush-mount - though it makes it hard to get the driver out of the hole if it's a tight fit).

The only thing that you should always flush-mount is a conventional tweeter to minimize diffraction effects.
