« Part 5: New Face Part 6 of Antique Radio Cabinet Retrofit series Part 7: New Veneer for the Top »

Simple task last night… mounting the subwoofer. For speakers, all that will be in the console is a sub… I’ll hook up an external set of speakers on wall shelves.

I just mounted a piece of scrap plywood to the bottom of the cabinet, drilled a 3½” hole for the vented down firing bass port on the bottom of the subwoofer. Then I screwed the subwoofer to the plywood from the bottom-up.

Hopefully I’ll have no vibration issues… if so I’ll deal with it then.
