    I have never done it before and do not want to do it the wrong way. Do I just cut a hole into the box to the specs of it? do I need to caulk it up then to prevent air leaks or is it already pretty air tight?

    just confused.

    thanks

    Tyler,

    I think it would be better if you have it on DIY forum. Anyway assuming it's your DIY sub, you would have to doubling up the baffles meaning you have to cut 1 more piece of MDF, measure and cut a hole for the driver, then glue it together. Hope this help...

    Alex,

    I already did that for my driver, but it's for my plate amp thats going on the back of the box.

    I thought about it a bit more. tell me if I am wrong.

    cut out the dimensions of the main part of the amp (not the front plate/baffle of it) then just stick it in there, connect it to the sub. I put some weather stripping around the outside of hole for the plate amp, so when I mount it, it will be air tight. then just screw it in.
