Finally!!!!! Been getting so many people instant messaging me about how my 18" sounds and just yesterday, i actually started putting it together. Yes i know, i been having this 18" and had *** for it for a quite long time now, but in a few days, i will finally feed it POWA!!!

I want to thank PowernAudio & Trigger for the help on the design and also want to thank all of you guys for the support and on nagging me about my 18". :P:




Didn't get to take pictures of all the wood being cut, due to forgeting to take pics. But ended up taking pics during this process:

There i have the left side up, and i created my own little 6.5" width port guide. It's there laying right next to the left side piece.

Here's the front and port piece being added:

Bracing?



i might, with wooden dowels. but im going to flush the sub, so it will be double baffled by a 20x20 piece. which will reduce it from flexing and also have the port for support.

yo i want to add one 45 degree corner piece. i know the height is easy to figure and i know to cut each side of the piece 45 degrees. But how do i figure out the width of the piece?? Also, should i resin it?

Resin - i wouldnt, but you can.


wood glue and a couple screws will hold it in piece.....but if your gonna do one, you should do 4.....one for each unported corner. I'd brace or double baffle the sides, because that XXX will probably break it apart. Where do you get those clamps at tho? - I bet they are cheap as hell too.....would make things a ton easier, i tell you that.


the 6.5 inch port piece is the shiz too......I am really liking this box so far.

looking good so far, clean and precise cuts too. i like it.

i would suggest using the brace, to help the walls not soo much the top but thee walls, they should be keeped like on the design. or any other way/

again good job on the build up.

Try using some bendi wood for the corners, and put expanding foam in behind it to help the wood from not moving.:D

Just mdf right ? Just sand it smooth to remove glue and imperfections. You can either use the wood glue / water mixture or body filler to seal the end grain. Then sand that smooth. THen prime it and paint it. :)

just a note:
on something i read on an article of one of those home and mobile entertainment magazines. dont know which, but im sure some where on the net you can find an article about it.

those 45* angles inside the eclosure dont help on a subwoofer enclosure.
theyre used in enclosures for like midrange freqs and up. on a sub enclosures they only help if used inside the port to help direct the air and smoth out the posibility of port noise. other then that they are just taking up space. oh well they may help strengthen the corners and keep them from coming apart.

I dont agree with that it helps the flow of air better, example your driving a car and hit a brick wall, youd come to a complete stop, if you hit a curved wall your car will still be going, just a little example of how the air will act inside the enclosure plus i gained some dbs by cornering ;)

I've only been through the whole local home depot store once.It ***** compared to lowes.

But, it was close by the "tool world".I want to say it was on the isle with chains but I'm not sure.

i dont think you understud what i posted.
i meant that a 45* angle in side the port is "good" , because it helps the air flowing in and out of the port keeps turbulance down to a minimum and thus decreasing port noise and increasing slot port performance.

adding 45* angles to the box it self like on this picture by the subshttp://img262.imageshack.us/img262/936/img12653io.th.jpg
makes apsolutly no sence. it will not help direct the air in any way. it just adds strength to those corners.

instead of waisting your time testing those so called 45* angles made out of 1" or 2" pvc pipes. it would of made more sence to actualy add more bracing to the enclosure other then that single rod.

you can gain a 10th by just moving the enclosure slightly from the previous position.

i really doubt that that little bit of pvc curb you call a 45*angle will make a change on how the air flows.

im not going to debate this subject since is realy insignificant when it comes to enclosure performance.

i respect your thoughts about it, billions of people use it. but I on the other hand have done my own research and feel diffrent about those 45* angles. i say again i will only use them inside the port.

Actually if you read any of the before posts the corners on the back wall I used bendi wood, the pvc and spray in foam helps support the bendi wood from flexin but i dont know ive only did hours, hours of tests.

you know what youre right adding 45* angles to the enclosure help add a 10th of a db on the Tl. not only adds strength but makes the enclosure that much louder. you should also add 45* to the top and bottom edges as well, maybe then youll add 1db. to your enclosure on the TL , i mean if it helps on the vertical edges of the enclosure use them on the horizontal edges of the enclosure aswell. but im sure you all ready spent hours and hours testing that too. right.

what other tests have you done to enclosures that makes them that much better or louder. i see you resined the inside of the enclosure on that picture. how many more db did that add. or did you noticed that it makes the enclosure more resonant then without it.? just wondering.

Party @ Dante's place!

Last days of highschool? Doesn't that mean you should have alot more free time to work on the box. All my teachers didn't even want to see us during our last two weeks of school, even though we were suppose to be @ school. They were like your seniors, go to the beach and have fun.

If you dont prime it it will look like crap.
And let it cure before you put it in your truck. Just put it out in the sun for a day, should be good

Ok, this is the 3rd layer i have light primed. After 1 hour i sand it down with 220 grit sand paper. (its 90 degree out here).


Since this is like my 3rd layer, do i need to sand it one more time? or can i just spray my high gloss black spray paint already?

Use gluewash about 5 times until it's rock hard, prime lightly for about 3 coats with light sanding, then do another 5 or so coats of the actual primer with increasing grit each time up to about 800 or even 1000 or so. It should feel like glass. Then the topcoat is the easiest part. A few clean coats with light sanding in between, then throw on a clear lacquer coat and you're game.

Thanks for the suggestions. I think imma just sand it a bit more and just lay that top coat. I keep forgetting that this isn't my only enclosure I will build for the 18.


I just want to know if I lay the top coat after the primer or sand it then prime it.


Who knows.... It might look clean.

Chances are good that it weights in the area of 100 lbs plus 70 pounds of speaker plus another 30 in amp, so you've got a large, unwieldy enclosure that weighs 200 lbs....it's the sheer size of the box. I carried up a 130 lb box into my room, but it wasn't as large as my 8 cube 110 lb HT enclosure that required three people to get up the stairs.

Here are my results:

Alpine CDA-9835 @ volume 16 out of 35 (i listen to it max @ 22)

I first did a sweep of 40-30 hz. the freq of that was 39hz. Burped it for 3 seconds and got a 138.7

Then did a sweep of 45-35hz. max freq of that was 40 hz. Burped it got a whomping 139.0


Wanted to do my last sweep of 50-40 hz. where i got the max freq of 42hz. burped it and got 138.4. (ewwww)

Where as you can see @ 40 hz @ volume 16 i burped and got a 139.0.


After a lot of testing i decided to burp it at volume 17 @ 40 hz. Surprisingly i didnt get no distortion..

BURPED it and got a 141.0!!!!!!!!!!
