First attempt to building a box. Going ported on it. Not sure If I will carpet it or not. Depends on the results.

Just got the subs in the mail. Two Infinity Kappa Perfect 10.1 subwoofers..

Did the sub cut outs in the shop at the high school I used to go to..

Test fit for the subs.. looks like a tight fit just because they were sitting on the floor not touching the wood..

Yeah I am..

Got a question though, are my subs gonna like "flutter" unevenly? I thought when doing a ported box on more than one woofer without have individual ports, the inner port wall must end where both subwoofers will have equal access to the air passing through the port? So like should I extend that inner port wall to where it is evenly between the two subs or what? It doesn't show it on the design like that so I would have to do it myself.

Extending the port will change box volume/tuning.

Well, box is together except for the top of it. I am going to let it sit and dry for a day. Got my pieces cut at home depot, what I mistake. Every piece was wrong, their cuts weren't straight. So I had to go ahead an fix that before putting the box together. Never getting them cut there again. I have to run to work but I'll get pics tonight.

GO EAGLES.

Sit and dry for a day? meh, I always listen to mine in the next couple hours, if you used screws you'll be fine.


edit: misread the post....go get that top and attach it!

Ha no sorry, I guess I really didn't make too much sense in that last post. I was in a rush. I just didn't have time to get the top on. I am thinking about just painting the thing rather than carpeting it. I like how the ports look painted black.

Went to fit on the top this mornin, doesn't quite fit right. As you can see in the picture, the left outside wall on the box is about 4/5 of an inch long so it sticks out that much from the top of the box. Does this really matter?

It is the wall on the left, by the port..

you got the wood cut at home depot and its not straight? how did that happen? they should be straight, just maybe no be the right length

o6blink

nope, they weren't straight at all. I don't know what was wrong with their saw, but I hope it isn't always like that because none of them were perfect square.

Is there gap on the bottom of the front plate near the port?

The base is bigger so I had some room to work with. I am going to sand it down when I am done.

Just wanted to see how it will look with the subs in it :)

Today I sanded it all down and stuff. Tomorrow is primer. Wednesday is paint. I am using a fleck paint on it so I think it will look good.

Alright well I got it painted.

This is the stuff I painted it with. Let me tell you, it works AMAZING. It goes on a lot easier than spray paint and it covers the surface FAST. I only used one can on the whole box. ($7) So yeah, I would recommend it.

Heres a couple pics of it drying. The pictures don't do any justice. The sun was too bright so they didn't come out too good. It looks about 10xbetter in person ha. This baby looks exactly like it would if I made the box out of stone. Don't mind the screw holes, I am screwing the screws back in.

You can build a box but you can't install an amp... ftmfl :(

not bad, but the base still kind of sticks out still :(

o6blink
01-17-2007, 03:11 PM
Why can't I install an amp?

Yeah it does, but I could care less about the base. It's not what really matters :) And plus, it looks stupid like that but i will look better when it's in my trunk.

Nice...have you listened to it yet? I thought they only recommend 1.0 per sub?

Nope haven't had a listen yet. I would get it all wired up tomorrow but its supposed to rain/flurry so it'd be better on Friday when the weather is a little warmer and clear. Then I will give it a listen and possibly somehow get a sample on here?
