I built it on sunday, already installed it, sounds great. The carpet came in today so i will take more pics of it when completed.

It is for a single MJ-18

The box is 4.7 @ 30hz

I may sound stupid but the box builds why is the port always painted black like that?

so when it is carpeted there is no visible bare wood

no rounded over edges on the port inside the box? besides that looks good. what size round over did you use on the outside of the port?

everything is rounded except the corner opposite of the 45.. its a 3/8 roundover bit

Hey, JBL, what's the best wood-glue that you've found?

With the port area he has, Im guessing the lack of a 3/8" roundover wont be too big of deal....

that much speaker and no bracing?

Panels are relatively small in width, and the port extends very close to middle of the box. Id say bracing isnt 100% necessary...

i had 2 mj's on 1400 sealed and it got fairly loud for being in a trunk car, very punchy subs, but ported is where the real lows come alive..
