Here is a box I build a couple months back for my 2 re se drivers.

Here are the beginning steps of the box build. First I used wood glue and 1 1/4" finishing nails to set the wood in place. Then I finished with a wood sealant and 1 1/4" wood screws.


Then I put the rest of the box together for a mock up, but didn’t want to install the face until I get the subs. I will cut the speaker holes when the subs come so I can be sure the holes are accurate and I don’t have to cut them in the box


After I mocked of the face and port I installed the slot of the port. FYI, this is much more time consuming to install then a cylinder port you have to measure and re-measure. With a cylinder port (which is what I have alwyas designed to in teh past) you can just cut once and then push the port in.


Here is the next step of my box build. Before I put the top on and sealed everything up. I am going to test the performance with a signal generator, the Orion 1200D amp and the RE SE subs.


Everything sounded good and fit so I carpeted. Whole project including wood cutting and carpeting 12 hours (I let the glue set for 7 hours before adding the drivers and carpet).

Looks pretty good except for the un level right sub. Let us know how it sounds.

lol, it was pretty loud and clean, actually becuase it of how good it looked and sounded a local shop bought it (for a customer) and I made $200 over what I payed of everything;)

I kinda wish I would ahve kept 1 sub though,

It wasn't a shop that bought it, sorry to be misleading... I was at a shop (meyer emco) and people were all going on and on about thier "custom" JL setups. So I mentioned that I had RE subs. "RE subs, what are those made by Jensen" (I didn't even know Jenen even made equitpment any more). I started playing around with gains and one of the guys like it so much he offered me cash for them and had the shop install everything.
