Box is 1.4 cubes, sealed for 4 Ascendant Audio Assassins 8's. It will be going into a '02 Ford F150 supercrew. Chris came up with a VERY challenging design. But I think its off to a great start. Box will be left naked.

Here are some pics:

Angle cuts are easy when you have a table saw. :p: Very nice build, as always..

Jesus it would have been easier to make a fiberglass mold of where that's going than make all those cuts, very nice build quality though.

Thanks for the compliments guys. And no, it was much easier doing it this way vs. fiberglassing, considering he is halfway across the country ;)

As usual, Im jealous of your talent. I think you are simply the best box builder Ive ever seen.

May I ask a question without sounding like Im tying to be the expert? lol You said you had to do the ends twice. Would it have been easier to make the end walls the outside edge, and butt the long walls up to it, rather than tucking the outer walls in? That way you could have just gone back and flushed it off with a router instead of needing the outer walls to be cut exact.

I only ask this to learn, not to suggest you screwed up. I suspect you have a good reason for doing it the other way. Thannks.

Thanks man. As far as the sides go.... There is actually a couple reasons...

First, usually the sides get inset, for the carpeting. But there wasnt enough volume in this box to get the desired airspace, so we had to push them out flush.

Secondly, I believe doing the sides like this is much stronger, than sticking them on the outside. I could be wrong though...

But I trust Chris knows what he is doing with the designs. So I just build, I dont ask questions, lol :laugh:

James Bang
12-12-2007, 07:12 PM
Thanks Chris ;)

The sides were a little bit of a challenge to get a good fit. I had to do them twice..... :(

Before seeing the sides put on, I thought you were going to the front baffle first. Then you'd be able to just place a piece of wood for the sides and just use a flush/panel bit and router away.

nevertheless, it came out very nicely.


edit: didn't see that audioholic brought it up.

IonSQL
12-12-2007, 07:15 PM
Quite honestly the biggest reason is because when I built it, I used Birch, and it looked better with having the sides like that :)

It really wouldn't matter either way, I just prefer the sides to be the smaller piece anyway, just personal preference I guess.

Yes, sadly there are is an issue and I need to come up with a solution.
The box fits perfectly under the seats. The seat legs have to be off in order for this box to work.
No big deal, enclosure will support the seats at the right height and seat angle except where the 60/40 split seats meet up there is a welded on bracket where the seat support legs attach to that comes down and rests on top of the box putting the seats in a weird angle
Plus because of the seat mechanisms and what not the box had to be a certain width and this width falls between the outer seat brackets so it sits weird that way also...
Pics...

OK first pic show bracket and where on top of the enclosure it is hitting.

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b107/amedeuce/IMG_1675-1.jpg

Second pic

RED Lines show where outer seat brackets are and they are not resting on box

White Arrow shows where the two seats come together.

BLUE Arrows show where the seat is raised in that area due to the bracket and how it leans towards the other end.

GREEN Line shows where I might cut the enclosure so it will fit 2 eights under the longer bench seat perfectly.

amedeuce
12-19-2007, 06:39 PM
I may be able to cut away those areas and see how far down the brackets will stick into the box and build around them from the inside to seal up the box.
