Heres the story for Bimma85 and all of you other guys about that box for the 13.5 W7.

I bought it from a guy in NY about two weeks ago. He said that the box was professionaly built blah blah. I got the sub in (the sub is in perfect conditon for the most part) but the box was pretty messed up. Either it was f*cked up in shipping or from being built by a meth head. Anyway... it was built to JL specs for a ported enclosure. I did not want to throw away the box because there was some usuable wood there. I took apart the box and cut all the wood to the length so it would be JL's specs for a sealed box. The result from this was some random holes throughout the box. I sealed all of the holes up with wood filler. I also put wood filler around all of the seams. The box is now air tight and sounds great. I will be carpeting it soon and selling it to a friend locally. Now here is the pic again

You are a n00bx.

I never re-use MDF... too much of a hassle. Especially when an entire 4'x8' sheet is only $20.

i got that box in a deal. i dont take pics of everything i do

Jordantyler
03-19-2006, 07:33 PM
cuz u said it had holes in it??

that sounds very fishy if u want people to buy ur boxes u need atleast pics and Refs

JL12W7INAGS300
03-19-2006, 07:34 PM
A few...... I filled them with wood filler and its like new. Does it make sence to throw away all of that wood when I can change it to a sealed box, cover up all of the wood filler with carpet then sell it on ebay for 30-40 bucks?

i dont have any refrences that was the whole point of building boxes for free. you just pay for shipping and materials. but people were not willing to do that.

03-19-2006, 07:36 PM
You're an expert box builder and are gonna try to fix some janky *** box instead of spending $5-10 on some new mdf :laugh:

You've built 10 boxes and expect to set up shop?

I take it you dont like my ava? :(

You have built ten enclosures, and want to sell. Within my sight right now I have 8. In my garage there are 5 that were for practice, all of which were built long before i even wanted to sell. In my closet I'll assume around 8 as well. In the HT there are 4. Speakers count as boxes as well as a speaker design requires much more time than a box design does.

Of course they were atrocious, I don't and don't want to deny that. Improper tools, knowledge and motivation do not equal success. However, any of the enclosures that have been sold have been not nearly in that condition. Take this for example:

http://img55.imageshack.us/img55/9145/pict06916qa.th.jpg (http://img55.imageshack.us/my.php?image=pict06916qa.jpg) http://img95.imageshack.us/img95/3474/pict07029xu.th.jpg (http://img95.imageshack.us/my.php?image=pict07029xu.jpg)

No glue, silicone or wood filler. It's about cuts, cuts and more cuts. Measure until you think you've measured enough and do it three more times. Cannot stress that enough, good cuts will (always) equal good assembly. There isn't a magic trick to anything, you just need to want to make the customer happy. Either that or send him complimentary cocaine :D

Sorry for the threadjack, but I don't really care.

not much of a thread to jack.... but your right, cuts are important. I measure 4 times than cut. and sometimes measure somemore. the guide on my table saw doesn't always stay sqaure so i have to sqaure it up every **** time i move it.. grr

Why would you measure again after you cut it, that's the entire purpose of measuring in the beginning.
