ok i made my first subwoofer box and **** does it hit loud. its ported and tuned to 35 hrtz. i didnt wanna pay someone 10 or 5 bucks just to design it for me. so my go ahead and just do it attitude learned quickly and used the ported accelerator from http://www.accelerator-pedal.com/ported-box.asp#
(very easy to use i might add but is it accurate?? many people on this board said it was )

man does the box look great. i read up on alot of posts people put out there about how to cut the box, cut circles using a jigsaw, mdf 3/4 wood, wood glue, drywall screws, sealing with silicone so i think its a really good box if not excellent for a first timer!

wow i can seriously tell you guys 1 month ago i didnt know jack shi t about car audio. i have learned so much through this forum **** u guys ****in rockk! ;]

ill have pics up soon. now that is all done i have one question. wtf do u guys use to ease the back pain i got from 3 days of working on this lo l.:crying:

total cost:

1 box 5/8 drywall screws - 3.87
1 liquid nails wood paneling - 3.00
1 silicone chauking - 4.00
1 cheap jig saw - 21.00
(returned it right after circles were made) - -21.00
1 automotive carpet 2 yrds - 9.99
2 terminal cups- 8.00
(was lucky my uncle helped and had a table saw and drill) - 0.00
