Will do, thanks.
I will fill inner with that carpety stuff to muffle just to be sure.
My main concern is nothing rattles.


You can get the "Carpety stuff" easily by going to your local Auto scrap yard and asking permission to yank some out of the trunks of recent arrivals. I say recent because once they start removing components they throw the cut pieces and extra junk into the trunks. That's when the  oily gunk ends up soaking that felt carpet. Also, depending on the level of sound deadening you want and the vehicle you chose to take the stuff from you can get sound-deadening material made from reclaimed fires from under the spare tire cover, the parcel shelf and inside trunk lids and door panels. Just be careful since many wrecked vehicles have broken glass and sharp edges ...not to mention rodents or other animals taking up residence in the cosy areas like upholstery.  These critters may not care for you poking around in their homes,  especially if they have recent offspring.  Safety first.

His kid had pushed the aluminium dome in on the tweeters.  Angry
They where freaky things with a plastic horn attached on the back.



I have joined up on a stereo/audio forum, awaiting activation.
Alot of DIY'ers it appears.
I think I am out of my depth, reading about crossovers, capacitors and stuff.

Anyway here I dragged out into the light.

This collapsed and carry mode.
Good for on the floor.





Here in standing mode it can be wall mounted.





I will direct the bass/sub woofer out of the holes in the base.

Now that is a thing of beauty.

Only problem...... you gonna have to make another one  Grin

A thing of beauty is right.  The flexible mounting is a great idea.
