    I'm designing an enslosure for a Shiva, but it only has about .5" behind the sub for clearance, while the shiva specs say to leave 1" behind it. Is this going to be a big problem, or will I be okay leaving it that way?

    Thanks!

    yeah if my memory serves me correctly, i think the shiva has a vented pole pice for cooling and i believe air flow, so if you constrict that you are looking at over heating and chafing.

    Good, cause I just realized I forgot to take the 3/4" mdf thickness into account, so I'm golden [​IMG]
