VERY nice work on the build. Rear end of subs looks a LOT like the AA poly mids. Split coil design???

Try Harbor Freight for cheap clamps or Big Lots if you have one in town.

Just wondering why you only rounded 2 sides of the port and not all 4? Is it some crazy way of tuning that I don't know of.

4sides will be rounded, not finished yet;)

ooooh noesss ... i just did some math and its gonna be 2.6 net @ 34hz:uhoh::eek:

thats way off what i predicted!!

wtv if its too big i might make more wholes and add 2 more TB , hehe

i actually like screws a bit more, I think its faster and hold tight for sure, when glueing, you really have to make sure its well clamped then wait till it drys...
depends on the person's patience I guess.
i finished the box with screws and little bit of glue, wasnt patient anymore for clamping, loll

looks like a lot of bracing for such small drivers. i dont think i would have used 1\2 that much bracing in a box of that nature. a double baffle would have been plenty for 4 6.5's and a few hundred watts. lmao.


but im sure it will sound great. i did a box with 2 of the ED variety and they were quite fun to play with.

Too much bracing for a box like that. . . I wouldn't have used any and it would have been fine. I'm willing to bet that bracing hurts rather than helps.

Yeah next time use a little less bracing, but you definately should solder up them terminals. Its gonna be a biotch when those start fallin off.

i don't see how it would hurt. but since you already have a subwoofer, to help cover more of the audible frequency spectrum, i would use them more for low mid bass, with an active band pass cross over and amp, in the ranges of 80Hz-200Hz this can add fullness to guitars, vocals and horns to the system, with a center freq boost or cut at around 120Hz to 125Hz can add good sound quality. but then again its all dependent to your personal taste of sound. you can try using them to help boost the low end bass, or use them to cover more of the audible frequency spectrum. its all up to you, and what you're trying to achieve with your sound system.

ps, to SQBubble the enclosure looks very well build.

To much bracing can create turbulance inside the box. Being that I didnt look at the pics, Im not sure if he over did it, but considering that those 4 6.5's have less cone area that 2 10" drviers, sounds like he did go overboard.

meh... PEOPLE , I am aware that I went overkill with bracing, ESPECIALLY just for 6.5"s, not even 8 lol, but it sounds good and has some output, thats where its at ;)
