some pieces were too long for my 10" tablesaw to cut so I had to use the circular saw technique:

sketched out and measured where to predrill on the bottom piece:
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a11/mobster909/ID%20box/04-12-06_1505.jpg
then I predrill while the top and bottom are stacked to make life easier:

3 days? last time i did 2 ported boxes in 2 hours?i guess that didnt include design time....so make the 3 hours

****...no way! takes me almost 2 hours just to measure and cut the pieces.

so you totally complete the whole box w/in 2 hrs....**** that crazy.

measuring and cutting the pieces, predrilling, counter-sinking, painting port black, sub cutout, terminal cutout, rounding port pieces, 45s, caulking, gluing, clamping, drilling, sanding...

no way on earth can I do that in 2 hrs. I spent 12 hours jsut today alone.:crazy:

finally DONE! btw

pieces other than the top all glue/screwed on

top screwed on b4 sanding:

Nice looking box. Get a roundover bit for the port edges so you don't have to use the sander.

good quality work... building effeciency comes with time... when i make a box for someone else i normally have about 2 hours in it and lowes does all the cuts

If i had one of those circ saws on a X/Y axis i could make enclosures in no time.
But using a small table saw *****.

Thanks for all the kind compliments. i really appreciate it. it gives me more motivation on building more boxes.


Nice

From viewing the pics ive come to the conculsion that i need way more clamps, i have 2 :(
b4 i started building, i bought flakko's 1st box he's ever built. it's 2.75 cubes @ 29hz. i just bought it cause it was very inexpensive and never used it.
x2 on the clamps... i need more bar clamps




**** that is a **** load of screws....

I agree 3 days? That is along time, but whatever..
it was more like 2 days. Also... i wanted to take my time w/ this enclosure. If i had one full free day, i think i can finished an enclosure.


good quality work... building effeciency comes with time... when i make a box for someone else i normally have about 2 hours in it and lowes does all the cuts
i still think 2 hours is wildly quick, even w/ pre-cut pieces. also, I prefer to cut my own pieces, so i can only blame myself if anything happens.

Anywhere from 1100 to 15000, depending on options/motor/size

hofulstrof

i have no idea how much it would cost but i bet they are expencive ^^^
but they will only cut vertical or horizontal so you are gaureented a square cut

With all due respect, taking less time usually is not the best way to do it. NOw if you are so good that you can cut everything and glue, screw and sand in two hours without mistakes, then far more power to ya. However, trying to get the enclosure done in a short time usually leads to mistakes and carelss measuring errors. I personally have taken an hour alone in measuring for the speakers and subwoofer in my HT project. Just gives you that sense of certainty. I've never seen yo stuff b4, you got any pics? :)

2 hrs is really fast. My first box outta ply wood took about 2 hrs to build but I had my uncle helping me with it all and I put a 1 inch sliver in my finger when sealing the box....

Unless your the guy from Unique with all the materials, tools in the world. 2 hrs is going to be hard to meet...

Excellent looking box, qudos...

hey guys i said 2 ported boxes (uncarpeted) in 2 hours.not just one:D .

i agree with the statement that faster is not the best way.and accuracy is the key.my first few box's that i did took a few hours as i was learning how to do things right.but if you keep trying you learn how to speed of the build process while still being accurate.
and most ppl do not have access to the tools i have the saw i posted above plus a 8 foot slideing bed table saw,bar clamps, air staplers rouders etc.

take your time do it right and the end result will be very rewarding

thx for all the compliments. I am really proud of this box even though it took days. I don't have all the pro tools as hofulstrof does, so maybe that's why. This box here is my fourth project and i think it came out great. also the compliments were great motivation...

hofulstrof
04-14-2006, 04:10 PM
that box looks great.do you plan carpeting it or painting it?

James Bang
04-14-2006, 04:20 PM
well, my GF wants it carpeted but i've never done a carpet job before, so I am not too confident in carpeting. Also, since i think it looks pretty nice w/o the carpet, why mess it up w/ an ugly carpet job. I actually dig the bare wood look.....****

hofulstrof

I would only carpet my box if I had a false wall...

I'm glad some agree with me here. I don't like to see my hardwork covered up by carpeting.

James Bang
04-14-2006, 06:07 PM
cool. I thought I was alone when i prefered bare wood.
Hopefully, my idmax10 will be done soon so i can replace the ID10.. ETA 2 weeks.

carpeting is pretty trick when you first try it.
Ive only done 2 carpet jobs, you get really sticky and reek of glue

hofulstrof
04-14-2006, 08:45 PM
make sure you have a sharp knife and thin carpet. the trick it is to overlap the carpet and then cut

One thing is that it was actually cheaper at Circuit City.

lol, thanks for reviving this super old thread, but anyways, the design/plan for this box is from the Moe Lester's sticky. even though it says 1.65 cubes, it's really 1.25. Someone should inform Moe about that.
