    Ok, I'm thinking about rebuilding my side panels and putting in a sub in one of them. If you have re build your side panels, could you send me some pics of them (dawson444@aol.com) or post them here, I would really appreciate it. I also would like to especially see some pictures if you have done this and have a subwoofer in them. Thanks!

    Hey one thing not to forget when doing this is to seal the speakers off. There has to be an air tight encloseure behind the speaker for it to work good. And you may want to fill the area behind the speaker with poly fill. I have done this and it smooths out the lower frequencies when using an encloseure that is not made for the speaker it fakes out the volume of the box somehow. With a good speaker and amp combo making sure the amp has a high damping factor you will have the hard hitting kick drumb bass as well as the lower 120 htz and below bass too!!
