here it is,my first box build besides my fiberglass adventure i took earlier this year.
it was origionaly from the plans at 2.9 at 33hz, but tweaked a little so it has 3x12 ports instead of 1.5x12" ports. oh yeah she'll be tuned to 36hz/recommended by Polecat! it'll be glued/screwed 2mora and thrown in my truck for a nice vid. feel free to comment.

Looks good man, going to carpet it or leave it bare?
Let us know how it sounds.
What are you powering them with?

a kx1200.1 of course! carpet is a must for me, so yes it will be . just not sure what color.

do i need to use screws or just some glue and a nail gun with some 1 1/4 brads to finish it off??

will screws split the wood? does anyone else use nails?

alrighty then, screws FTW. how far apart should i place the screws? or should i glue it all together first then drill the holes for the screws?

Looks very nice =)

you could use brad nails and it would be so much easier.
the glue is what holds the box together, not the screws. people need to learn chemistry and shiz.
looks good i suppose. just fyi, the best way to have subs in a truck is port and sub facing upwards. thought id share.
and dont forget to spraypaint the ports black before you put it all together!!!!

yes, i painted the ports black last ngiht after i took the pics cuz i didnt want to carr it with wet paint inside, so...yes i am gonna try to point it straight up and mount my amp on the front. thanks for the info.

I have a question why do you paint the ports black??
05-09-2006, 01:45 PM
so you can't see the color of the wood when you look into it. like a black hole....

this thread is REALLY old:
BTW, box is way too small for two L7's. he realized this later when he built another for someone else:
