Alrighty y'all, an undisclosed member on here wanted to see what type of work I can do (heard good reviews (shut up Jmac :p: ) ) before he buys, so I figure I'll take a few days and make up a nice enclosure, carpeted and all. A ten or twelve inch sub, you pick the sub, I'll build it to spec (I need something to do anyway). Just let me know what driver, and then y'all can critique my work. Throw somethin out, nothin reasonable will be turned away.

He found a picture of 6 12's that he really likes. So he is thinking of going with that. Also, he is a little upset because he is only getting a new denali instead of the escalade:crazy:

But I will keep you updated on that. He may need a design for 6 12's though. Sorry you did all that work if he doesn't go with the 4 15's. But either way I will hold onto that design because I am sure someone will use it. Or I will if nobody else does:up2somet:

He saw a picture of 6 12's with plexiglas enclosures and he really liked it. So we will see how it all turns out. He keeps asking me for designs. I have thrown together about 10 different designs and probably sent 35 emails, and still he hasn't even purchased anything. So hopefully he will end up actually getting some mags someday.

Well, while I wait to get my PM box back, I'll say that the design is almost finished and that you shouldn't expect any boxes this week or the next as I had emergency surgery and had all four wisdom teeth removed after i got an abcess, and then I'm going away next week. I'll keep in touch.

I appreciate Grant posting the design in my absence. That is just the design, and yes, the box will be built probaby in a week and a half. Tomorrow I'm going to colorado, then after a week I come back and we all go on a family trip/cruise/something involving the ocean. After that, all bets are off. Already got the carpet, I can either do medium grey or charcoal. Which one? Ordering rabbet bit as we speak. :)

i though about buying a rabbeting bit and some berings. but then i tryed the table saw just before i went to HD to get them and i can do the same cut all around that i can do with the rabbeting for the carpeting. so i saved me like $40,

but then im like i could use the rabbeting bit to flush mount speakers like for 8" speakers and smaller it would come in handy.

for subs i just double baffle.

what ealse can i use a rabbeting bit for?

Si tienes un "dado bit", no necesita un bit de rabbeto. Pero quieres hacer otras cosas, el rabbeto no tenga un precio.

Basically in that broken spanish which makes no sense, the rabbet bit is good if you don't have a dado attachment for your saw, which I think that you do. But, I use rabbeting bits for far many things. Inseting woofers, etc.

Does it always take you over a week to build an enclosure ... ?
Nope, usually a day to build then sand, then a morning or afternoon or wte to carpet. Read the thread sir :). I had to get all of my wisdom teeth removed a few days ago because 3/4 got infected around the gum area. I cannot even close my mouth still, so no construction for me. :)

if your tring to do the rabbit cut pv audio made on the drawing it looks like he made two panels and placed them side by side to give it that look.

$40 for a rabbinting bit, ****, send me $40 and i will be glad to send you one.
But on a serious note, i will check with my dad, I get all my tools and bits at fisher lumber, he works there, actually i do too, but he is a salesman there so he gets me a good deal. I can check on a price for one for you if you are interested. Just pm me if you want.

when i said 40 buck i meant it with the bearing set. i have an account with home depot so i like to use it as much as possible.

i just wanted to know how many diffrent uses are there for a rabbinting bit. i guess ill just search the net. lol.

yea just one bearing, i thought about that after i had already made my post. Ive never needed any other size bearings, but then again, the only thing I use it for is to building boxes. So if you will need it for other things, i bet it would be a good investment.

No. I just made one panel and outlined that section and pushed it in like 3/8 of an inch or wte it is.

If you have a table saw, you don't even need a dado blade. You can just move the fence over 1/8" at a time to get your slot cut as wide as you need :)
