However, anything too large to fit through the 12" joist space is too big to fit through the attic access hole.

I guess the attic is only accessable to midgets.

I suppose he'll have to carry the wood and parts up and fab the cabinet in the attic  ;)
Hey, the next person who worked on it would get a kick out of it.

I actually believe that the most cost effective way is to have Carpenter/Contractor Cut and Head out a ceiling joist for each location.

This could most likely be done in about an hour each, including drywall patching.

Look around the attic and avoid any Wiring/Pipes/Ducts if possible.

Also if you look around, I think you might find an attic opening 30"X30".

Believe it or not, Most of the time, Framing out what you need is the Most cost effective way to do things.

I agree, especially if you consider how many subs do you really need anyway. You don't give any details about the space but if you take advantage of in corner or close to wall placement I'm betting the requirements are few and not that costly.

The only access into the attic is a framed hole cut between joists. It's a tight squeeze climbing through there. Even if it were large enough to fit a bigger sub through there, the strange framing (wish I had pictures of it) and roof-lines would make it near impossible to get the subs where I need them.

Anyway, It's looking like this project may not go through...I think the guy is quickly realizing he may not have the money to do this the right way.
