Thats all for today. Im going to work on bracing tomarrow. For the Baffles i think im going to wait till I get my sub to cut the holes. theres going to be 2 baffles with a 3rd as a flush mount. Oh and heres pix with it in the back of my truck.

To the left is my spare.

pretty good for your first box, a powersander could help you with some of the un-evenness of your cuts

I didn't think it was that bad either. You'll get better with each box you build.

Im old skool. a little elbow grease and it will be even. You should have seen the jig saw I used. It was brand new in the early 1900's.

Wow...looks good dude and its 3.3ft^3 but a lot or bracing will put it around 3ft^3.....Port turned out pretty good dude...tell me how yall like the perfect 1:1 ratio :)

Whenever the spare is gone we're dfinately going to have to make a bigger box for this beast

my neighbor has this cool do dad that predrills and drills for a counter sink. its my new best friend. only problem is its only a one inch predrill.

Oh yeah people tell what you think about painting the box the same color as my interior. A dark glossy red.

Good job by the way.

Yay Update!!! I screwed in the dowles and added bracing to the baffeles. Oh and i did cut holes for speaker to mount on. I cut a small hole in top most baffel (flush mount) just so i could see everything lined up. Pix time!
