Alright guys, I'm starting my first box and am going to try to be done by Friday.
The specs are 23 wide, 15.5 deep, and 17 high. 3/4 " MDF. for a 15" mag. Cutout 14"


This is going to sound stupid, but I really don't want to mess it up. So could someone please post up the cut's I need to make. I don't trust myself to much as it's my first box :crap:.


Will post up pics in a few hours after I start.
Thanks!

WOW! I have no idea what I was thinking. :crap:

Im human too, we all make mistakes. Although this one is kind of embarrassing :rolleyes:

Hopefully the op either realized I was incorrect, or hasnt cut all his pieces yet. If it turns out you have to buy more MDF because of me, let me know, Ill take care of it. Sorry man.

Dude's in Brighton, I would have gladly given him a hand, if it was indeed needed.

Haha no worries man. I have a ton of extra wood, and I actually posted this up...then we no one responded for 10 mins I just changed the specs a little bit to make it easier. The outer dimensions are going to be a little bit bigger, but shouldn't make to much of a difference.
They will be 23x17x17
Putting on ends today, sub cutout, and starting to wire up the car.

Fenton...that's not far at all! Wow. Haha I have been looking at people's locations for a while and hadn't seen anyone close so I thought I was on my own.
