Just got my stuff in from Exile. 4 12" XPs and an Exile 2400.1

Got a decent amount of stuff done today. Got the wood cut, the ports screwed and fiberglassed in, and got all the sub holes cut. We were gonna do more, but it started raining/snowing.

The box is 9.033 cubes before displacement. Should be about 8.5 after everything is put in. Tuned to around 35hz.

All the equipment

We got the ports a lot more flush after the pics were taken, and resined to make sure it was air tight.

where did you get those ports...they look kinda fugly

Bumpn Focus
01-09-2007, 05:08 PM
Got them from Mark Potts awhile back, and just getting around to using them again. The stuff on the lip is dried wood glue that I haven't sanded off. On the old box I was using, the ports were external and i was just using it to get a good seal.

I didnt mean the wood glue, I just expected more "flare" like the PSP kits...

How much did he charge?

Bumpn Focus
01-09-2007, 05:11 PM
Hmmm, can't quite remember. I got the whole box from him....still regret spending that money to this day.

I wanna say it was around 235 for the box and ports. :(

saywhat?

Well...PSP's flared 6" is $32 for me...dont know about ya'll, but that stll aint cheap...

I went out and measured. The ports are 6" with an 8" flare. I think the pictures just don't do them justice. They just don't have as big of a lip on them like the Precision Ports.

Enough hating on the ports. ****.

And they have a pretty decent flair, the port itself is 6", at the tip of the flair 8", and the ports sit pretty much flush mount with the wood.

Seems fine to me. :fyi:


More pics later hopefully.

Obviously they wouldn't fit on the same plane... He doesn't have 48"+ of width or 24"+ of depth.

Build looks good man.

obviously you cant grasp the concept of a staggered mount.

mazdakid
01-17-2007, 06:45 PM
looks to me like you could fit em all on top, so its not obvious ****

PhatTonyDeMarco
01-17-2007, 06:47 PM
Looks to me that even staggering them would not fit... But maybe we'll wait for his answer.

Lckmyblls
01-17-2007, 06:57 PM
so how do the xp's sound?

MTMustang7
01-17-2007, 11:35 PM
They sound awsome. I was really surprised at how loud they were. When he plays songs with low notes his cd player skips really bad. We will probably build another box later on that will be tuned higher. Then we will see what kind of numbers these things can do. This box is tuned to low to put up bigger numbers but it is awesome for a daily beater.

Bumpn Focus
01-18-2007, 01:28 AM
^ Yup, pretty much what he said.

Probably gonna stagger them next box. Two seperate chambers, two XPs in each and two 4" Flared Precision Ports in each chamber.


LckMyBlls, they sound pretty **** good. They drop. And have a pretty quick response.

Need to deaden my hatch some more as well as my floor and side panels though, the rattling makes them sound kinda sloppy.

Videos sometime soon. Took some vids when the Team got metered yesterday, I dunno when they'll be up. Will get flex vids later.


147 out of a box tuned to 30hz is ok with me for right now lol

Thanks for the kind words. Keep 'em coming lol

Hmm not a big fan of the orientation of the subs or the potts ports, but welcome to the world of SPL wher you spend more on wood than a carpenter.

P.S. were going to be hosting some shows up here in western VA and WV if you guys are interested in coming up ill get you a list of the shows asap

were about 2 and a half hours away from you guys
