Box is 3.1 cubes before port and sub displacement.
it will be tuned to 32hz, and is for 1 12" Alpine type R.
This was made from all left over wood, so some cuts are more off than they should be b/c both sides of the wood are cut, not just one.
Heres the pics...

charging the drill... died when the screw on the top piece was just about in...

in the mean time I need to get my port figured out, and find some wood to make it with!

Seems like it is going to be hard to add the port now... or is the top piece just sitting there?

It's just being screwed on for the time... To help hold the front piece in place.

The screw on top is way too close to the end. See how bad it split the right side piece?

I know............. I always do that too....


Anyway, I feel really lucky... I just found about 6 pieces of MDF that are exactly the right width, and are long enough to use as well.

Well, the entire thing is done... I filled in that gap with MDF saw dust mixed with glue.

I am completely done carpeting.. BUT, I ran out of glue on the last side..

Anything else hold carpet down well besides spray glue?

Well, I don't want to post the current pics up, b/c the whole front is stapled on temporarily... I guess I can tough.

I really screwed up.. This was my first time carpeting, and well I made the seems on the font and back...:crap:

It was a pretty small bit, but then again, the screws are quite thin as well, they are also long though, 2"1/4... probably would have been better to use 2"...

All done! Sounds SO much better than 2 R's being suffocated... Seeing about 900watts, just as loud as two at 1600 in the smaller box.. I'm really really happy with this.:D
Cell phone pics, so they are kinda fuzzy.:crap:
BTW: I know the carpeting looks like **** on the front.. lol, so please don't point it out, haha.

Yeah.. I know... I really ****ed it up..

Is carpet in the port a bad thing:confused:

I really want to find a cool fabric and re-do it. But Jo-ann fabrics is expensive, and I am about an hour away from Walmart...

Jus got to a fabric store an shop around. With the cuts being a lil off the best thing that works for me is to use a planner an make it all even. You might not have one, but its a sweet tool.

Yeah.. I have one. It's just that the one cut that was off, was low. So I would have had to plain the entire thing down.

I think I minght hit up Jo-ann tomorrow.. check out if they have anything on clearance.
