    I'm building my own sub using a Shiva MK3, it's almost complete, however what's the best way of mounting the driver.

    The Shiva has a nice cork rim on the outside. For downward firing is it better to mount it from the inside of the sub i.e. the driver is resting on the bottom of the base panel, or use t-nuts and mount it from the outside and use sealant of a draft excluder.

    What's everyone else done and does it make any difference ?

    Cheers

    The normal method of mounting is from the outside so that you don't have to take the box apart to get the driver out. Use some draught excluder on the back of the driver to give a good seal.
