Default DIY speaker covers

One of my more talented friends made these subwoofer covers in a weekend. Essentially:
1. covered speakers in Saran wrap
2. laid on some FG cloth and resin
3. smoothed with body filler and sanded
4. sprayed with enamel.

The look very nice in person, the spacer rings are also his.

Looks great. How does it work. I thought that they needed a air vent to work properly.

no, they work using:

"diaphragm umbilical musical biologic acoustic sonic synthesis" technology.
or D.U.M.B.A.S.S. for short.

basically, the sound permeates through the fiberglass and fills your soul with music.

There used to be a sub woofer that was pretty much a magnet and voice coil that you were supposed to screw to a wall or floor and that surface would become a cone or "sounding board" for the sound.

Apparently, it didn't work as well as planned, I haven't heard of it for years. If it did work, it would have been great for a boat.
