    would it be a problem to enclose a front firing sub in a cabinet. as long as when I am using it the doors are open so it can breath.

    Wellllll, there are some "ifs" that come into play here. IF you don't also have a TV in the cabinet that could be damaged by a non-shielded sub.

    IF the cabinet is very well braced so that it doesn't resonate. Maybe build the section of the cabinet housing the sub with double thick walls or even make the innerwall from MDF. Also, making sure the sub compartment is sealed.

    And IF the vibration from the sub doesn't cause your electronics / players problems.

    I have seen it done in several custom installs but these are things to keep in mind.
