It goes between the Receiver and the amp. Leave the Crown flat for first hookup. The high pass filter can protect a sub from unloading below tune but that's for a ported enclosure. I don't think the Ultra needs that kind of protection in a sealed box of 4 cubes.
The low pass filter shouldn't have much effect because your receiver cuts off the highs through the sub-out.
You can experiment with both settings (carefully) and decide for yourself what's best.

I wish I had some good tips on paint but I usually come out of the garage with more paint on my-self than the enclosure

They make this stuff called Duratex which is made for speakers and they have a roll on version of it. It is supposed to leave a textured finish but I hear it's pretty pricey. I used rattle cans the last time I painted but that took forever to get a nice finish and I hated ever second of it.

As you have probably already figured out I REALLY don't like to paint

Re: Sealed TC Sounds LMS Ultra 5400 18" NOOB STYLE!!

its 10:30pm. just finished getting the last of the birch wood clamped down. So far, thats been the hardest part i think. That glue makes the surface like a slip and slide. I had originally started with the baffle cover, but that proved impossible because each edge stuck out 3/4 of an inch and i couldn't get it squared up for nothing. so ended up taking it off before it dried. I had ran out of pl premium glue pretty quick. after that first piece i had run out and decided against using anymore and went and got some more tite bond. I think the tite bond is a little easier to use and sand. I will get some pics up tomorrow

Tomorrows goal is to get it sanded down, edges rounded, and primed.

I ONLY use PL premium if it is a tapped horn enclosure or I have a gap to fill. If not then it is Titebond II for everything else. PL gets all over everything and is so much harder to clean that normal wood glue. I almost avoid projects that require PL due to the mess.
