Holy crap small box...

Make two 3/4" MDF ring to give your sub some room to breath.

Decent looking man...... It still wouldn't hurt to build a small ring to get the speaker away from the port. Reason being, when the sub get's up and moving you the sub might flex the wood and cause it to hit the port.

saywhat?

yah, the type r vents out the side, your fine this time. next time plan your box on paper.

then again if the box flexes a full 1/4 inch...he needs to think about what hes doing wrong.

I would just put a 1/2" spacer ring under the sub.....OR.....put a 1/2" face panel on the front of the box......once carpeted, noone will be able to tell that you really fu<ked up on your dimensions. LOL!!!! :D

My box flexes and there is nothing wrong with it what so ever. It has to flex otherwise it'll break.... 1/4 is a lot but building a ring would be way better than dealing with that nocking sound....

Stop giving advice if you believe what you just said.

RU kidding me???? If you don't think your box flexes you either

A. Don't have a sub that moves
B. Are in serious denial.
C. Have an ultra small box and therefore flexing wouldn't be noticeable.

I would get it further away from the port... otherwise you may end up with a humming noise.

I'm sure my box flexes... but can I tell? no. So doesn't matter to me.

A well constructed box will not flex, and a decently constructed enclosure will not move beyond a slight "vibration" if you will.

If your box noticeably flexes, guess what, there's something wrong - plain and simple. Would you like to come see my box, you're more than welcome to see it NOT flexing...with a 15" avalanche and viper 1200.1

The the question at hand though, I would add a ring because as undercover stated you may end up with some noise that's not optimal. It was suggested earlier to add a complete face (ie double baffle), which isn't a bad idea for the cosmetics if you can take the extra weight. It will also help with flexing, but from the looks of it you're not dealing with long enough stretches to have too much trouble in that area.

B&W wasn't saying that it would flex ALOT, but simply that it will flex, which is what will cause that noise I was referring to.

A box shouldn't flex whatsoever, that's the entire point of bracing.

Yes, but often bracing reduces the SPL level produced. Noticable to the ear? Probably not but can you tell a diffence in SPL of a flexing box and a non flexing one?

saywhat?

bracing reduces spl numbers in some applications because of factors way off away from flexing.

How so?

And... Two MDF Rings + Fiberglass cover = FTW =)

Think about it like the dd 9515. Many subs have a lot larger Vd (xmax * surface area), but not many are louder.

What do people NOT get?

You want the sub away from the port opening...

Also, I'd use a .75" MDF spacer as well.

I can't believe that people are saying that a quality built box will have flex in it.... Also, I am looking forward to a convincing story about how bracing can actually reduce the SPL output of an enclosure....

I'm thinking about closing this thread to prevent further ignorant responses...

Thus far, myself, UCP, and B&W look to be the only truth talkers...

All else. Ignorant.

Also,

FYI tards...

...a lot of times too much bracing DOES decrease SPL...to the ear? no...but on the mic... yes ;) It's even been proven, numerous times.

SO STFU... ignorance on teh intranets FTL...
