sorry for the bad quality phone cam pics. My digi-cam is being repaired.. :crap:

i hope they sound great w/ it's all done. especially the port, since it's my own design and i am still learning.

Thanks guys. The one port for the idmax is just for fun. I never got to hear it with a box of this spec. The one for the 2 idq15s may be what i'll be using in the long run until i finally get into an IB install. that might be awhile though. so these both are basically temps.

congrats on the first box BJ the man.

a little mishap happened today and the sealed idq box took a little fall from the workbench. Should be able to be fixed with a roundover bit.

I should have more pics up tomorrow after i use a paneling and roundover bit. also some sanding. I may just leave the port non-sanded and ugly since it's already in my trunk for a little audition.

i'm hoping my design is even correct. it does sound much smoother than my last box (2.5@32hz w/ a 4" round port) maybe someone can do some checking.

external dimensions: 16" tall x 36" wide x 15.5" deep

2.7 @ ~28.5hz

port: 2.75" x 14.5"
port length: 44.25"

this is the first box design i actually built other than sealed boxes. i'm really hoping in got this right.

The box is:

Net Volume: 2.75 cu/ft
Tuning Freq: 28.00 Hz

not counting sub displacement. so your pretty much dead on.

Thanks a lot for the checking.

these builds got me a little hyped to build some more, but too bad my hand is messed up from a fight right now... so doing the finishing touches on the box might be a little painful.

If your ever interested in trading those 15s for a pair of 12 IDQs, let me know :D

Nice enclosures...

if you give a PM w/ details (i.e. volume, tuning, bare or carpet) i would also suggest having a design ready. because my designs aren't proven or tested.
