Well, i use them and they punch verry good.
i build the first one in MDF and now i have 2 in "Multiplex Okoume supergarant"

is use them on this QSC powerlight 4.0 amps (2 in bridge per amp)

I had pictures but the forum was not working when i was in the build.
and now a year later i don't have the pictures anymore because of a ransomware virus :-( 

It this moment i'm thinking to build a CUBO18 to A/B compare them.

The Earthquake B36 is a little less good sounding then the 186 in my A/B tests.
The 186 is more difficult to build but its better in sound.

I live in Belgium next to Maastricht (NL)

A little note on t nuts in mdf. A lot of issues come about when (installing or removing) people let the weight of power drill push down on bolts. Pull them up tight manually with a ratchet in first place really helps. You can nearly always get a couple of turns more than even the best cordless.
It's everything, not everythink!

When drilling, make sure the t-nut holes are nice and straight with the driver holes; use your fingers to put the bolts in as far as then tighten with allen key. You could also reinforce the baffle edge underneath with birch or similar ply that will hold the nuts better.
