I am pretty much finished putting my box together, just have to carpet it and its all done. But before I carpet it, I want to be sure that it is sealed completely.........

Is there any way I can test this? I used screws, glue and caulk on all the joins of the box.

Thanks :)

take a fan and hold along all edges while running your hand along the inside...if you feel air then its not seaed....if you caulked well its prob sealed though

i normally take a leaf blower to the inside walls/corners before i put it in as a final check but u should be good.

Great, thanks all. Will give the fan a try and hope for no leaks.

Put some water in there, and swish it around. Look for the wet spots. :D














J/K The fan idea works good as well as hooking up the subs (for fitment), and feel for leaks then to. :cool:
