Yup! for the o4-05 generation.

Those are just some random screws that my uncle had left over... I have to sort them out to find ones that match.

Tuned to 28hz, Thanks for the inspiration Bj (Rabbited Edges)

Update:

Finished painting the port area
Predrilled Half Bottom, One side, and Back.

Ran into a problem because the front baffle's right edge was crooked.
Fixed it with sanding paper (took 15 minutes =( ...)

Anyone have any ideas on how I'm going to seal off the top port area with caulk or silicone after I've installed the top of the box last? Since the port area is only 2 inches wide, I dont have alot of space to work with.

James Bang
04-12-2006, 06:20 PM
I would put extra glue on top of the port walls before screwing on the top. or mix it up w/ some liquid nails, just enough where you know when you screw on the top, all the area on top will be covered w/ your adhesives, and enough where some will squish out when the top is screwed on. that felt like a run-on sentence. MDF dust is getting to me...

Bolognablake
04-12-2006, 10:33 PM
I always just squeeze out some caulk and use my finger to seal the seams.

Update: Didn't have much time to do anything today, but I'm pretty much done with the **** thing. All I have to do left is glue the top, final coat of black paint (port), and seal off the rest of the box. I'm still having a hard time trying to figure out how to seal the top of the box off... Because of the brace, it's going to be hard to reach in through the subwoofer hole to seal it off... still open to ideas.

http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f340/ssj2xxgotenxx/SpeakerBoXXX/88033.jpg

This is what I mean about reaching in to seal off the top (inner chamber)

Update: Finally completed the bastard thing, and for my second box, I'm rather proud of the build... Still have to carpet and add some terminals. I also plan on adding a huge bracket so I can chain the bastard thing to the frame of my car. Will be using security screws as well.

that bastard thing looks pretty nice. I really like the looks of the bracing.

About the sub firing right into the port. Is that really a bad thing??? My box is the same way. I mean, air doesn't constantly flow out through the port. Doesn't the sub cause a push-pull motion for the air? My sub/box sounds fine... would it sound better if my sub was in the middle?

ssj2xxgotenxx

Yea... I see alot of people mounting the sub in that position, and none of them have problems... so I'm not to concerned with that. But here's some more updates.

I had to reach in through the speaker hole and through the brace just to caulk/silicone the inner chamber. It was intresting....

Hey Why do you need to put caulk around your brace? It doesn't really matter if thats air tight or not, does it?

James Bang
04-15-2006, 04:37 AM
well, he can say he has an air-tight brace.:naughty: that's in an air-tight enclosure. and people can know he actually builds enclosures.

Yea... I wasn't sure whether or not to put it on... In the end I decided it couldn't hurt, so I did.

Yea... maybe your Right.... but my carpeting job around the port look like $hit in the past... Any suggestions on carpeting the port area?

a few thoughts...like that one guy said, i would have put the sub more to the left and maybe put two braces, one on each side...(you can't ever have too much bracing lolz :naughty: )

and i would have rounded the braces inside, makes it alittle bit stronger i think, just a personal preference...

nice to see a fellow asian pimpin tho...you don't see too much of those around now a days :p: :yumyum: ....nice job...nice and clean! woot!

That was my original plan.. I was going to mount the speaker dead center, and incorporate two picture frame braces, but since the port wall to the left doubles as a brace itself, it wasn't nessesary to use two braces. In fact, a box of this size doesn't require any bracing @ all. I was just feeling up to the challenge, and I learned from my previous mistake of not putting braces in the box. So... all in all, I'm pretty satisfied with the box other than the subwoofer hole, but you don't see it with the sub in there anyways... Thanks for the replys and stay tuned for the carpet job within the next two weeks.

Any box that is make the correct way does not need bracing, but i would have used a threaded rod:)

Carpet and terminals is on the way from partsexpress. This local shop tried to charge me $15.00 per linear yard for some carpet!??! Another thread suggested going to CC or BB, but they didn't have any carpet there. Anyways, I pretty much did the bracing for the experience. The box is very solid and doesn't leak so I'm very happy with the outcome of my project.

i like the security idea, only thing is if they want it bad enough and can't get it... they'll break it.

my friend had 4 L-brackets holding his box in and they couldnt take it out, so they cut the surrounds and cones on his two w7's.
