OK before I get started. Ya I know, I used particle board. I have like 3 sheets lying around in my garage so I thought hay, why let go to waste. So I snatched em up and began cutting. The boxes specs are 16 deep 16 tall and 36 wide. It has a 4.5 inch wide port and is tuned at 40 hzz. Box is 3 cubes I believe.( I know, kinda small but im in a Camry so cut me some slack.)

not speaking on quality of materials, but worksmanship looks nice. any wood glue? i cant see any, and remember to stay away from the edges to avoid splitting :crap:

Well yes sir it will be carpeted. I did use glue on the baffles but the sides and tops and back is just basically in mock up stage right now. I shall be putting in a 15" rd audio elite spl woofer :)

I know mane. Didn't have the money to pick up a sheet or two at the moment and this has been in the garage floor since as long as I can remember.So I just thought I would use some of it up.

Get some full on bracing on the inside and you should be fine.

Try to stay around 4" to 6" away from the edge to keep from splitting the wood. Also predrill first

Nice build

If I put some bracing on the inside wouldnt it take up needed air space?

Wouldnt fiber glassin the inside take the importance away of which wood was used? Still resonate at the same frequency correct?

box resonance isnt the question, its structural integrity

Well, looks at this way, if the box sounds like ****.

This experience was good practice, and the next box, hopefully outta mdf, will be better than this one.(not saying this one is bad)

screw holes for the sub are going to strip out fast i bet.
but it doesnt look bad

Well I plan on having two 15" rd elite spl subs/ and on that build Ill shall use no other wood than mdf ;)

if anything it could be good for practice, i wouldn't personally use it, i doubt it'll sound bad at low volumes, i would turn it up too loud, with my xxx 15s I have double baffled 3/4 MDF and when i crank it the wood flexes some aweful, I couldn't imagine what particle board would do.

I wouldn't bother carpeting it, when it goes throw it away build yourself something solid and just consider it a good learning experience. A+ for craftsmanship, those cuts don't look bad at all considering its p-board.

If the box flies apart then it's exploding.

just glass the inside

Might as well just do a whole new box then.

Build quality does look really good for being that kinda wood. The only other thing I'd personally suggest is painting the port black....or really, any solid color that floats yer boat! :)

10-26-2007, 03:58 PM
Well, ill probably just use it as is. Later when I box off my trunk Ill use mdf and glass it all. but for now thes is just a temperory home for the rd :). it is like half an inch thick for who ever asked

I'm disappointed. I was expecting a fiberglass enclosure shaped like giant mammories. **** lesbian video thread's got my mind in the gutter
