Ok so last night I built the box I am going to use for my 2 12" Alpine Type R's... 5 cubes tuned to 34 Hz... The dimentions are 38w x 26d x 14h.... Now for the Q's.....
1. How do I carpet it when it is so big?...... the carpet is 48" wide and I dont want a seem in the front of the box....
Should I wrap the front first and then do the rest of the box with another peice???

You wrap the piece around use stress cut's on the corners so you can wrap over the corners without seeing them , then make sure your using a good adhesive first for the carpet to stick to your MDF. Then after that cut another piece and make it line up perfect with the seam either putting the seam on the bottom or on the back bottom is best you won't see it then . then when you come to the holes for the sub's cover the carpet over them take a razor blade and cut the circle where the sub will you you can either cut like triangles out and staple them back into the box or u can just fully cut them off. But that's a good way to carpet a box u need any more help man just PM me.
