Thanks for your comment. I used some kind of pads that are usually used for chairs so the chair doesn't make marks on the floor. Also under the speaker there is 5mm of rubber. Thanks for comments everyone!
I've been known to build amps for people from time to time. They can be time consuming so I typically just do it on a one at a time basis, however once I move I'll be able to have an actual workbench where I can do casework, which will really clear up my workbench inside... so I can have a dedicated amp building station if I want
And no, the enclosure didn't come with a kit... I didn't buy a kit (unless you count the OptiVol, which was a kit I put together, but I ordered each and every part and the enclosure you're asking about was actually a custom order

Yep, came as a blank pcb and I populated all the parts, after hand matching the resistors and transistors.
I like building amps... it's the casework I don't like. There's just something about starting with all the components and then listening to beautiful music once you're done that gives me a great deal of satisfaction.
Guys, lets stay on topic. There are other threads to post pics of your setup. This thread is specifically to post pictures, ask questions and for discussion on DIY audio.
