Looks pretty nice.

Only comment I have is that you don't need to use that many screws. The glue (assuming you used wood glue) actually holds the box together. A screw every 4-6 inches is all that's really necessary.

Looking good though

Looks great! me and my friend built a box almost exactly like that for my old Audiobahn Flame Q.....lets just hope u have a better sub than that :D .....but to be honest that sub suprised me and I dont think Audiobahn is as bad as put out to be

I put it on it's side, so the sub would be facing upwards and the port sideways, and it didn't sound near as good.

hmm as i said, i put the box so that the port would be facing outwards...and it sounded worse. i didn't believe it either but my ears don't lie too me much:laugh:

Depending on your goals I wouldnt have done it like that either lol.

If you are happy with it then its a great box :)

What reasons do you guys have to say you wouldn't do it like that? what are some of the flaws you guys have ran into?

bholtmeier

Nope and no intention either. lol

My first box fired into the deck, was fing LOUD!!! (Check Gallery)

But i haven't tested it any other way so no comparison. I see nothing wrong with his port, other then it's easier for things to drop in it.

Next time, CounterSink!

I don't think they were commenting on the fact that you placed your box like that, but rather that you built your box like that. In general (unless space dictates otherwise), the port and sub fire in the same direction.

As stated though, if you're happy, it's a perfect box.
