Well I didn't take any pictures during the build, but here's some almost-complete pictures.

That is one of my old enclosures behind it, and an 18" Concept CSP covered with the blanket...useless POS

I used a 12" Quicktube (sold at Lowes, used for pouring concrete columns.) I did 5 good coats of resin on it, and it's pretty darn solid now. The original plan was to fire the subs up, but I later realized I don't have the clearence to do so. So I am going to be firing them back... I am having Guy0277 make me a couple MDF rings to add extra spacing for the pole vent. As soon as I get those I will finish the box, the plan is to carpet it but I might test it out first as I am not sure how it will turn out; this being the first time I have tried this.

It will house my Premier 3000SPL's, you have probably seen my other build threads for them. I really really love these subs, for the money I have found nothing better.

The box is 4 cubes tuned to 32Hz, and in case you aren't mathletes, a 12" port is 113^2 inches of port :naughty:

I should receive the baffles from Guy0277 by the middle of next week, so I will have an update for you guys around then. I also am awaiting my new amp from MacDaddyMague; a Mmats DH300C.

Questions, comments, concerns?

:D

Thanks 80, your opnion is really respected so thank you for the compliments on it.

Yeah, I've done the 8" route when I had my 18" 4HP. Now that was some heavy PVC...

And btw, this port is 35" long :cool:

I did that a while back with an 8" one too. Looks pretty nice.

Thanks for the good words guys...

The cutouts will be on the right wall in the first picture. I never actually thought about inverting them, that would have saved me loads of trouble. But I would rather have them mounted normally because I don't have tint and all you would see is two big *** magnets if you glanced in any window...

I hope to put them in tomorrow, I am very happy with how it turned out. If all sounds well then I will pull it out and carpet it to make it a permanent part of the system.

Also got my modded Mmats D300HC amplifier running at half an ohm, and it is WAY louder than my 20.1 ever was; and cost me $300 less :D

Well I just got it in, and all I can say is OMG WOWZERZ!!!11!!

It pounds the lows like I have never felt before, EVERYTHING in the Jeep is flexing now; wipers do a dance, dash gets jiggy wit it, even the steering wheel is bouncin around :D There is like a hurricane coming out of the port, so it is deffinitly not too much port for these bad little subs :)

I am VERY happy with it, only thing I regret is not carpeting it before I installed it :crap:

Oh well... :)

I am inspired by the quick-tube idea. I feel like an idiot for not thinking of something like that.

I can't take credit for the idea, I saw someone else make an 8" port with one of them.

Just be sure to do at least 3 good layers on the exterior of the tube, and at least one inside; that's when it got nice and rigid for me.

That's a sweet design! What were the size specs, port length & cubes of this bad boy?

The port takes up a lot of room;it's 35" long, 2.2 cubes of displacement:eek:

So it comes out to right on 4 cubes net @ 32Hz.
