This box is for a returning customer. It will be 6 cubes NET tuned to 32 hz. It will house a trio of Rockford Fosgate Punch HX2's.
Box will be going into the rear of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, so we have some good amount of room to work with.
Box will be finished off in a charcoal gray carpet. The design is compliments of Chris (IonSQL) who can now be contacted through WWW.FisherCustoms.com for designs.
Thanks again Chris,

It looks like a layered piece for the second baffle piece. Do you mix plywood and mdf? If so, how well do they glue together?

I'm guessing what you're seeing is the indentation that the cam made from the flush trim bit, but feel free to correct me BJ :D

Nailed it. Both front panels are Trupan. It does appear to almost be a layered ply, but like Chris said, is from the router.

Have you ever tried doing your braces like a "T" instead of flat against the walls? Normally that's MUCH stronger and they'd only need to be about 1 1/2". Or do you think it would disrupt airflow through the box too much?

Looks nice as always, and the questions are just to learn from your experience. I'm going to be building a BIG box for 2 MJ-18's in a few weeks and trying to decide the easiest way to brace it. Sorry for the thread jack...

Not a problem man on the thread jack.

IonSQL did the design, and I will guarantee he knows more about this aspect than I do. Im sure he will jump in here. Its things like this, is the reason I leave the designs up to him. I trust him 100%. So I have no problem building whatever he draws up. :cool:

Man I miss those Punch HX2's. They were some nice subs...

Box looks great, it'll definately pound. :D

Dude, you have no idea what you're doing. Why the hell didn't you use birch?

On a serious note, one of your best I've seen.

But the rear wall has no dowel going to it, so I'm wondering if "T" braces would be stronger?

IonSQL

I don't doubt that the T brace would be stronger, but I feel that the bracing that is on the back wall is more than sufficient to prevent flex.

Plus, I've never been a big fan of the way the wood protrudes into the box when using T braces, too much chance of disturbing the airflow IMO. If someone can tell me that's not the case, then by all means I'll turn that puppy 90 deg... but otherwise I'll stick with the bracing the way it is.

Bingo. The concept of a shelf brace is excellent. Airflow is a problem though. They create turbulence inside. Air is a fluid, so let's compare it to water. If you have a stream of water and stick a wall in the middle of it, it's going to create a pocket behind it (turbulence) which disrupts the flow. If it's round, then not so much. Problem with dowels though is that they don't have much surface area.

It gets pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Its all about how you position the blade on the edge of the wood.

Yea, you will get the hang of it after a couple hundred circles...




























J/k. Seriously though, you will get the hang of it fast. Just try different techniques until you find something that works well.
