I counter sink ~1/8 for all the screws and wood fill the holes after complete, then sand when the entire box is complete.

When I'm finished I post the rest.

I like the disclaimer that you had to work with the specs that he gave you. :laugh:

Tell him that box it .5 cubes too small and not enough port area. ;)

Nice work though. It should do ok.

First thing I thought. Give her 2.25 daily and she'll sing a beautiful aria.

Nice construction though, looks very nice.

Thanks,

I guess I'll wait until we can test with the sub and sees how it performs.

i have heard them in small enclosures and they still thump but cabin gain played a big factor on how it sounded. so i hope that you will get the same results.

the build looks good. keep the pics coming.

Heres about the final box, I still need to sand it a bit to clean it up.

Does the tuning frequency take into account speaker displacement?
