Okay, some of ya'll know that I sold my RE XXX 15 and I bought some JL Audio 12W3's. I decided to go with a sealed box so I can keep some room in the trunk. I am confident that the SQ and SPL will still cause some good vibrations. :)

Now, I didn't build this box. I went to Vince's Audio (http://www.vincesaudio.com/) and they did all the calculations and fabrication. I just advised them on the maximum dimensions and they went from there.

I feel that the box came out really great. I paid them the full amount and they started building the following day and this is the final product here. They sent me these pics Saturday and they are suppose to ship the box Monday. So, I am hoping to receive the box by Friday.

Once I get it, I will take some more pics of the box and install.

BTW, the subs in the pics here are not mine. These are the 12W3's that they happen to have. They jsut tested the cutout diameter to guarantee fitment.

Let me know what everyone thinks. Again, the work was done by Vince's Audio (http://www.vincesaudio.com/) and I highly recommend them.

Looks great!

If it were mine, I would flip the subs and box and have two on bottom, one on top. But that's just me. I bet those are going to sound awesome.

Thats looks very clean. They did a really nice carpeting job. Which version of W3's are you putting in them?

I am using the older style.

I should be able to install everything either Thursday or Friday.

are they in their own chamber? if so... how are you going to run wires from the two outer subs to the terminal? just wondering if anyone else noticed that

yeah i noticed that a few days ago when this box was posted to advertise or whatever it was before the thread got pwned... The guy said that the holes were already drilled, but i never saw a pic of that ****...

The maker tried to pull a fast one by advertising his business with this box, stating that blatant advertising isn't as bad as subtler tactics. Either way, it looks excellent. I know it doesn't matter, but glue ecess on the inside is one of my pet peeves. Then again, I have way too much time on my hands :crap:

The buyer only wanted one terminal cup.

How do you avoid glue spillout, PV? When the cuts mesh up well, even the smallest quantity of glue leaks out from the sides. Unless you just mean wiping it up very well immediately?

These are the enclosures he made before he changed his screen name to PV Audio. I guess he was embarrassed.:confused: I know I would be;)

Geah, just wipe it up right after. It makes no difference whatsoever though, I've just learned (as Dbfan is pointing out) that the less there is to critique, the better.
