the only problem i ran into is that the spl port is a real snug fit....next time i do it ill add 1/16 to the hole cutout to make everthing fit easier

there is one problem. daily driver box's and spl box's do not differ in only port tuning and area....

since those are internal ports every time he varies the port length and area hes also changing the enclosure volume with it. so thats 3 different factors thats hes changing by changing ports

Only thing I woulda done differently is used hurricane nuts on the interchangable part, so that you can just bolt the ports in, and the holes won't strip. Using wood screws, there's a good chance you'll strip it out.

That can't possibly be a spl box, it's too pretty!:laugh: Hope it churns out numbers.

whats a good way to mount the ports....
i would assume weather stripping and threaded inserts or Tnuts
other wise the woof would get all drilled out
how are you doing it?

Got screws? LOL

Looks good man, nice craftsmanship. As mentioned, look into threaded inserts, they work very nice for interchangable port setups.

no , but i built a second one for a local guy, and used t-nuts this time. he will be going to the next USACI event down here wich is in a few weeks. ill post #'s up of his results. he will be using a Merlon Audio 12" ( model # MEWO-M3-332D ) running off of a jl 500/1 . his last score was 134.3 with the same setup but he was using a tm rush tube ( sonotube.) and it was much to small.
