Wow I'm very impressed. Not like I'm any kind of expert, but it looks very nicely done with incredible attention to detail. I'd kill for an enclosure built like that for my Rockford 15" T1.

AMAZING work. I don't believe I have seen a box contructed as well as that one. Mad props to you, sir.

Definitely one of the best boxes I have seen.....I was thinking of doing some window work like you did on the rear of that on my next box, but after seeing your work I don't want to try now that I have a good picture of what it's supposed to look like. :D

that duro spray adhesive****ing ***** jyi
I always use contact cement or 3m super 77 or 88 i used the duro once because it was 4 dollars cheaper and the carpet came off 4 hours later.... and it was not because of ****** prep or anything...

besides that looks pretty good

I would be interested to see your definition of a "really good" MDF enclosure in that case.

Im just curious of why don't more people buld boxes like sub sonic and I using more traditional methods?? I strongly recomend dado's or dove tails (if your capable or have the tools) since they create some of the absolute strongest joints period. I learned this from my dad who has be invloved in pro-audio for many many years. both recording, confrence, stadiums. and many of his tricks and tips have worn off on me.

but back to the point I'm just wondering why dont people take the extra half hour of labor to build a box using dado joints or the extra hour or two (depending on tools available) to use dove-tails or miter joints like sub sonic

most people dont have the time, money, tools or patients to go to that extent. there is a point of diminishing returns, also.

but when done right, as seen here :yumyum: :yumyum: :yumyum:

Remember that traditional joining methods came about because of the poor glues of the day, the joint it's self had to hold the materials together.

With modern glues being so strong the wood it's self fails before the glue does, jointing isn't as necessary, also mdf doesn't lend it's self as well to fine jointing such as dove tails like "real" wood does.

You'll de-laminate the mdf it's self before a glued and screwed butt join fails (in reference to enclosure use).

In retrospec this is why i try to use baltic birch ply whenever i build a box that I plan i keeping for longer than two weeks sure its about 4 times the price of mdf for a 4x8 sheet but well worth it imho

I wish I could be more wordy because I am beyond floored at this. Its more than amazing. Its a gift man, I truly mean that. You by far outperform every other builder here and that says a good deal when we have excellent designers/builders such as the mighty 80!

Great job. Do you do this as a job? If so what kinda prices do you charge because I would love to buy one of your boxes.
