Built this box for the guy that lives next door to me in our dorm. its 4 cubic feet tuned to 34hz with 2 3" aero ports that I had to drive up to PartsExpress to buy. they have a pretty cool store up there btw. Anyway, it is housing 2 Memphis Power Reference 12s, but i designed the box so it will work for most any 12" subs so he can change them out later if need be. The box is going into a 96 Pontiac Bonneville.

This is only the second box I have ever built, but I think I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself. on to the pics

photobucket is being retarded but here is a link to the photo album on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2008190&l=23232&id=1418970347) i have with these pics

Holy no port area!

I thought about going with 4" ports but thought they looked way too big and decided to downsize to 3" ports....guess i should have stuck with my original thought over aesthetics

i think you did a pretty nice job. Carpet hides everything, so i cant say great cuts or nice construction, but it looks solid. Ports might be small, but you have heard that enough.

there are a couple rough cuts because my circular saw was messing up, the cuts I made after buying a new saw were spot on. since it was only my second box ever, i think i did a decent job. next time I will increase port area for sure

thanks Enellz......the first box I built was a slot ported box. Neither one was particularly hard, just make sure you are careful with measurements and cuts and be sure to have someone help you when you go to assemble everything. 1 set of hands just isn't enough unless you have a ****-ton of clamps

I'm just curious, did you follow a design for this? I only ask because you said you switched from 4" to 3" ports, which throws of nearly everything.

no i made my own design. I just used WinISD to figure out port tuning and such. My original plan was to use 4" ports and while I was buying materials I looked at some 4" PVC pipe and decided it looked too **** big so I reworked the design to use 3" ports.

the ports as I bought them are 4.5", the final length will be 6" I believe, i don't have the sheet where I did all my math handy. We need to go to a plumbing supply store to buy some light-duty pvc pipe to make the ports long enough. Parts express didn't have any extension pipe for the ports I used
