Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
box is constructed of 5/8" HDP (high-density particleboard) with a section
of 5/8" MDF (medium-density fiberboard) adhered to the back of the front
panel. The section of MDF provides the mounting surface for the woofer. Both
materials resist flexing and have anti-resonant qualities. MDF is used as the
mounting surface for the woofer because it accepts screws better than HDP.
Having superior rigidity and anti-resonant qualities, HDP is used for the rest
of the enclosure.
For strength, Q-Logic uses a full dado groove on the front, back, top, and
bottom panels. The side panels are glued, then locked into these grooves. The
edges of the front, back, top and bottom are joined at an angle, so there's more
surface area for the special glue that bonds them. The side
panels of the box are recessed 0.5". The enclosure is covered with durable
The Q-Ring is a multi-diameter woofer mounting adapter. Mounting tabs on the
Q-Ring center the woofer in the mounting hole. To accommodate various woofer
cutout diameters, the mounting tabs on the Q-Ring can be trimmed.
speaker and grille mount in a recessed plastic grille frame in the front of the
enclosure. The recess is 0.685" deep and has a diameter of 12.985". The
maximum woofer frame diameter is 12.723", because a 0.131" gap is
needed around the woofer frame to mount the mesh grille.
"U-Channel" rubber strip wraps around the edge of the grille and
provides additional security when mounting the grille.
Spring Posts: The spring posts, located on the rear of the
enclosure, will accept bare wire, pin connectors, banana plugs, and dual banana
Brackets: Brackets (not included) are recommended for more
