i have a Q on the way so i had some free time this weekend to build my box. box is 4.1cuft @ 32Hz so im excited to hear this thing. unfortunately i dont have pics of the actual building cuz i didnt have my camera but i have pics of the somewhat finished product. Box will be wrapped in dark grey/charcoal suede. i dont think it went too bad for my first build! comments please.

Ill be making one similar to that after christmas. im doin 3.5 cubes. some people recommended a double baffle for the 15" Q. looks good though.

if it fits....im just gunna screw the beauty board onto the box then screw the sub into that...so it would be somewhat like a double baffle.

i didnt use a double baffle with my 15" q box. but i have mine sub up /port back. the sub also sits right next to the port so...

oh yeah? i really dont want to go through the hassle of making another baffle and cut the port and hole and **** but i might anyway just to be safe because i cant get the beauty board in the trunk if its screwed to the box.

good luck mounting that beast in the trunk..

I would make the beauty board to work like a flush mount.

If the beauty board is mounted fairly well to the box then there is definately no need for a double baffle on top of that...

why are you using such a thick piece of wood for the trim ring anyway?

only reason i didnt is because i ran out of wood. but its mounted close to port walls so i really shouldnt have any flexing.
they are heavy so mounting them horizontal like that , id want a second baffle.

yeah i know... i was just trying to see if i can use the beauty board as a baffle but it wont fit like that. but im just gunna have to cut another piece of wood and fit it on the front baffle.

im gunna do the back of the box because you can see through the ski pass in my car, and im just gunna do the beauty board. it would be pointless to do the whole box because you cant see it.
