Hello all, It has been a LOONNGG time since I posted. I finally have enough of a break to try to finish my thunder 12.3 cabinet. A little problem popped up. I cut the drive openings to the specs in the design I recieved from Stryke, but the PR and Subwoofers will not fit in the holes with the rubber rings in place, these things are waay to tight. Another 1/16 th would've been perfect but the holes are already drilled. I'm guessing that the rubber ring on previous runs of these drivers were lower profile and allowed for a snug fit. As it is, I can only mount these without any rubber on. Unfortunatly, this is less than ideal for looks. ANyone have any ideas? I have not veneered the box yet but I plan on doing that shortly (This week!). I need millimeters here. I could try to sand down the rings but that would be silly, I'm also thinking about sanding the holes bigger but I couldn't guarantee a even ring. I could create a template for my router 1/16th wider and then use the template router bit but that seems like a gamble as well. Lastly, I was thinking of painting the metal outside of the surrounds with some black enamel.
