lmao even with a cutaway view you still probably wouldnt get it right, because they are designed for your car its not just a general box slapped together....

Haha yea its expensive but I'll admit its worth the money. Looks like Mark puts a lot of effort into building a quality box. Then again I went from a 1.0cu ft prefab box from Tweeter to the custom ported box. I'm a happy customer though :D.

Tommy and tobias are good buds, but aren't officially part of TCAB.

InhumanAcura - I'm not "ghey", just for future reference.

As far as the original post, josh covered it best saying the boxes are vehicle specific, seeing one doesnt mean you have seen them all.

so basically the people that you build boxes for, you have hands on experience with their specific make and model car to know how to build to that car?

Hmmmm..interseting. What's up with thet Mark?



On a side note. Marks a cool guy. He's also a member of my forums. I've heard nothing but compliments of his enclosures. Maybe he needs to build me one? But then.........he likes type R subs and I don't. J/K


He keep s dogging me about my can only do 153 or so @35Hz?I think that's darn good myself. hehehe:naughty:

He means you might not have had the space to properly house the driver in the correct alignment for what you were looking to get from it...if that's correct Mark, just taking a guess here :)

WTH is wrong with 4 days? I know the internet runs like twice as fast as RL time on shelf lives, but *****ing about replying to a 4 day old thread is ridiculous. Bored today? Go find some emotionally unstable or retarded kid to rag on to make yourself feel better.

Guess I'm still a tad wet behind the ears on this subject. Could you direct me to technical reading that may help me understand the mechanics of properly housing the driver in the correct alignment?

They used to have one on their site of a type S box.Doesn't look like anything special to me.Just doesn't look like there would be any cold spots in the box.

nothing all that fancy :)

not every box even has a corner angle in it... some boxes have different size angles... it varies by woofer and application.

Oh ok, cool. I appreciate it anyway. I'm not trying to steal anything from him, it just seems like he has a wealth of knowledge and I'd simply like to become a better box builder.

looking at a sagittal cut of an enclosure won't help you become a better builder ;)

good call :)

custel/josh can attest to the fact that a box that wangs one car, may be terrible in another. A box that put out a 151.7 in the blazer (vid on the site, 2 type S 12's) pulled a what, 142? in the taurus... and josh had more power. One coil on one sub was louder than that in the blazer :cool:. The note was 60+hz

Now, a box that was more specifically built for the taurus (the single 15 box he used at finals)... a similar box in the blazer could only muster a 149.2, while in my monte (the vehicle the box was built for) under the same conditions that box pulled a 150.5... in the taurus the box pulled a 149.0 wasnt it? with similar power. The note in all the vehicles was between 44 and 48hz.

You can look inside either of those boxes all day and you won't learn anything. The truth is that neither had anything fancy going on, they were just woofer/vehicle specific. This doesn't *only* apply in SPL either :)

That goes without saying.....:)

I am more interested in learning how to build boxes that are tailor made for a specific vehicle? What kinds of things do I need to know about a vehicle in order to maximize the performance of the enclosure?

Spkrman,

I am a willing, able, and ready student. I'd like to learn what it takes to make a box vehicle specific?
