Nice work, should be super strong. Love the huge port, terminals, and textured paint. What's going to power the BTL?

IgnoreMe
09-03-2007, 02:50 PM
my only gripe is the split mdf, and the brace. not really my style of brace

other than that, it looks awesome IMO. if you could make sure you dont split the mdf, i willing to be you can make quite a few extra bucks selling boxes on this site ;)

thats a very nice build other than the split. Nice work w/ the fiberglass and the paint. looks real clean... I'm w/ george, possibility of box building for extra dollaz

theycallmecrash
09-03-2007, 03:22 PM
who needs screws anyways. the glue alone is stronger. i use 1.5inch brad nails in a gun.
but the build it looks great. wish i would have done a couple of the things you did.

what did you use to put on the outside of the box to smooth it out?

elkiko2004
09-03-2007, 04:27 PM
thanks friends for your advices.....the porpouse of tha fibre glass is to make it strong. and trust me it is super strong. this thing is solid as a rock !!! and heavy to...i will power the btl with a mmats 3500.1. the exterior paint, i used something like fleckstone...it its call ruber paint.

thanks

Pilot holes that are exactly the same length as the screw = your friend (that's also the only thing I don't like about the box). Other than that, it looks NOICE!!! :D

the nuts and bolts...pinching the plastic in between the washers.(at least in house electrical, refering to pinching insolation in the screw terminals) will cause added resistance, and voltage drops. at least trim that back so you only have metal in there.

looks too me like the back of the port is closer to the back of the box than 6" (the width of the port) and theres a45 degree in there = smaller?

which means your ported box will not perform right,

i hope im wrong, you obviously put a lot of effort into that box.

please tell me its more than 6" from the back of the port to the rear wall of the box !

Wow, nice box! And I thought I put a lot of time and effort into mine... but it really shows in yours. Did the rubber paint add a good amount of weight to it? Just wondering if it would help deaden it like bedliner. What did you use to round all the edges? I need to get a better sander/ and/or a router. The fiberglass was a nice touch, should definitely help with the MDF not "leaking."

Wow that box had a horrible start but you really brought it together in the end. im impressed. Keep it up.

mlstrass
09-07-2007, 05:19 PM
only thing I noticed was that you didn't roundover the rear of the port wall, minor detail, but if you go to all the trouble of glassing 45's in the corners you might as well do every little thing.

Nice build and finish on the box...

I'm very impressed. I like errthing but the braces. I want bracing in mine, but want to go another way. I really like that bedliner type outer coating.
You have the inside and outside leakproof IMO.
Great job!!
