Here are a few pictures of my box when it was first built then, wrecked, then built once again. I've got a bunch of extra wood so I'm trying to decide if I should put another layer on the front and cut it so the sub is flush or save the wood for my next project. I also plan on carpeting it, not that that makes a difference. Let me know what you think.

See thats why you need chemical bonding from a wood glue. 100x stronger. If wood glue had been used, the panel wouldn't have slid and split like that in the wreck, and could have possibly held up a lot better.

Either way your pics are way too **** big :p: Nice looking new build though.

jmasc what the external dim's on that box? I am looking into gettin the a box for my 15" Q, but I don't want to sacrafice my ENTIRE TRUNK. Here is what I have come up with for my new box.......(Which I don't like, has tooo much DEPTH) I also don't like that the port vent is in the back, unless I am looking at the design wrong.
