I'm considering something along similar line of thinking and while my driver does have holes in the back of the motor they are intended for venting I think. But then I'm not going to get even close to applying the 1000W AES power it is rated for.

Very beautiful, that seems to be final build, just listen some music and enjoy living in that room too.

Lewinski: peerless drivers are very open, not much vent noises going on. not problem on this build

I wasn't referring to vent noises, but to temperature buildup because of thermal ventilation being blocked. But maybe the driver is designed to be bolted like that, or Baffless designed the holes for this purpose, or my concern is a non-issue and I can use the learning towards my build.

I think I have some woofers with threaded holes centred on the magnets. Never considered your thermal point, but assumed if you could bolt the hole, there's no reason not to.

I'm sure there's no venting hole in the back of that Peerless driver since there's a phase plug on the front of the motor.
Wouldn't worry about heat issues in an open baffle driver in this application.

I would agree. If the holes are threaded, the drivers were likely designed accounting for the holes being blocked, so no issue. My Faital 18HP1010 has holes that aren't threaded, so I assume they weren't designed to have the holes blocked. But maybe as Jonasz says this is a non-issue.

in ob setups thermal is not issue, bass usually run out of steam first and xxxls drivers has vent holes in cone. sure you can just turn volume up but sound is already flat mat cause its run´d out of dynamic capabilities.

every other ob problems/features comes in before drivers burn
