This is what have I have completed so far. The box is 3 cubic feet net tuned to 35 hertz. The port is 3" wide yielding 43.5 square inches of port which isn't a ton but should be enough to get some air flowing. He wants the sub mounted on the front so instead of having the front piece mounting between the top and bottom piece, I have decided to make it the entire height of the box so that the baffle isn't too skinny at the top and bottom.

Here are some pictures of my progress:

Why does the port extend past the rest of the front of the box?

x2... but i dont see any advantage over building the box that way as opposed to building the front baffle over the whole thing

isn't it obvious?

Lol, the baffle will fill in the extra space.

ease of cutting the baffle, none of that bs trying to cut inside of the wood, I.E. doing a square cutout when the outside lips are only .75"......ya mea?

Yeah, I see it now, just seems unnecessary to me.

If I made the front piece normally, the top and bottom of the front piece would only be around a 1/4 of an inch thick. By doing it this way, I have an extra .75" on both the top and bottom of the baffle.

Ex: See SPY's last thread for Slammed where he didn't account for this.

And if you dont have one, like me, and only have a skill saw, then you're **** out of luck, ya mea.

Another thing is, when the front panel sits between the top and bottom, the screws can protrude into the cutout. A problem with that is... if you dont cut your hole until after you assemble it, you have to cut through the screws with your router. I see exactly what he is doing, and there is nothing wrong with doing it that way.

It makes perfect sense. Instead of having only 1/4" of material left between the edge of the cutout and the edge of the panel, he now has 1" because he has increased the width of the panel 1.5"

i get that...

but why not make a baffle that covers the hole front (port and all) then cut the port out with a flush bit??

do you not have a router

I see what you're saying now... No router unfortunately. I have a circular saw and a jig saw. Oh, and some awesome manual sand paper! ;)

Aren't you doing all of this with 1 hand?

Great work!

Indeed. I "got" smart though... I rigged up two holding devices that hold the wood at a 90 degree angle while I screw the wood together. It is very complex ;) They basically consist of 3 pieces of wood with a slot for the piece I am working with. I will post a picture sometime.

It doesn't ****, I never lost it... because I never had it to begin with. It has never slowed me down, except for riding a motorcycle or joining the military ;)

Forget the military, who would want to die for the stupid wars that we get reamed into. It's a money game.

Isn't that bad for the router bit?
