still don't have any my components waiting for delivery & to buy a battery. but at least I could start setting up. this is the backside of the cooler. the front will look the same. one question so for. you see the way I cut out the magnet so that the inside is not seen... Should I chalk around the area to seal it off or should I open it abit more so that the speakers use the inside of the cooler for its air space. gonna have 4 polk audio db691 being pushed by polk audio pa4000.4 & sony dsx-m60 HU. what would be the best way to wire them speakers in series or parallel with that amp. went mid grade with equipment so I want to wire it the best you pros think so I can sound the best possible. thank for all the help in here... LEARNING A LOT OF STUFF EVERYTIME I COME IN HERE & READ!!! ITZ GREAT!!!

was able to put a little more work into her... going to try and get to the housing compartment this week... waiting for the 12V 35Ah battery to come in...

With those speakers and that amp it is best to just wire it it one speaker per channel. No series or parallel to worry about.

Subscribing ....

Will he lose air space/low end/bass by not opening the back end to let the Woofer push air?

Looking clean man!  I would go ahead and open them up for the sake of airspace. You're going to get air noise and maybe some vibration from air trying to move between your magnet and the plastic around it. You could seal the foam side with fiberglass if you have the motivation. Otherwise, go with epoxy. If you're really lazy, put a good coating of silicone around it. With my build, my 961's are in the dry side so I didn't worry about it. A bit of advise though, put the screws through it and tighten as you would with the speakers mounted before you lay your sealant because the foam compresses whenever you tighten down your speakers. Or you could skip that and get some large PVC end caps to put behind your magnets and seal it off which is a good idea if your speakers are going to be exposed to anything wet inside your cooler. The larger the end caps, the better the sound will be.

At first I had the same idea as you, I wanted just the magnet to show. I ended up doing it like this

Yes, just open up the inside hole so that the woofer can use the airspace inside of the cooler. It isn't necessary to seal that exposed foam, but if you must - silicon is the easiest way to do that.

So I see the 3 modes of operation for the LED, but I'm curious what the first set of numbers is referring to?

Second and Third are obviously voltage and temperature.

Is that the amount of draw on the battery currently?

Time is correct. I got ideas from everyone putting volts, temperature... So why not add time to the mix. Now I can see how many hours my 35ah battery will last... Hahaha... If I don't pass out before that...

Looking really nice.  Are you going for water proof/resistant??

I fixed your pictures for ya.

Me personally I would have put the antenna by the flag mount to kinda protect it.
