Default A step beyond the monkey coffin

OK, here's a question for the truly sick among us. I've got an opportunity to get some, um... coffins... at a really low price. The real thing, Slovenian oak, superbly made and finished. And the lining is pretty sound absorbing. Has anyone actually tried using something like this as a macabre subwoofer cabinet?

I should mention that these are unused!

Will this be your 'final' subwoofer? the one that 'ends it all'?

two things i do not want to know:

1. how you happened upon this 'opportunity', and

2. how you found out that the interior lining is 'pretty sound absorbing'.

and the corollary, 2a. (ok so that's 2.5 things): i am not wondering why 'they' saw fit to make the interior lining sound absorptive.
