Right, now that we had the baffles and the braces cut...it was time the braces went on a diet...

Firstly the middles had to be cut out so the magnet could slide through and rest on the brace...then secondly, MDF was removed from the brace...just enough so there was still plenty of MDF remaining to support near on 80-100kgs of weight on there own!

So they went from this

Again, were put into the box to make sure they fitted nice and snug...so snug I needed a sledgehammer to get them straight up!

Now, it was make or break....should I of aligned the brace wrong, drilled any centre points wrong...or just been plain silly...the magnets WILL NOT line up with the holes in the braces :(...and would you believe it...

IT FITS!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, If you have never picked up an SMD before, you will NEVER realise how difficult it is putting one of these in a wall! Lifting them up and down aint a problem...its holding them while they are horizontal where the problems come in! At this point, we needed 2 of us to lift, push and guide the sub into its 'test home'!!! (Cheers goes out to my Dad here for the hand!)

Heres 'SMD #99' chillin...looking proud!

Time to get the braces in to firstly, support the subs, and secondly brace the box BIG time!

Get some angle steel (which is rated at over a ton IIRC!)

Cut it to the right lengths

Bond it to the wood

Then screw the steel to the MDF using HEAVY duty coach screws
