This is a fairly straight forward slot ported box. It will also feature a plexi window on the top, that will be engraved "SOU". The CNC part is finished, but no pics of it, due to the fact I dont want to take off the protective paper yet. The finish will be black carpet, with the inside of the box getting white paint. He is possibly going to be adding LEDs inside as well.

With the designs, Dylan and Chris.

As far as building them, it is mainly myself. I have a friend that helps carpeting when he has some extra time, but lately, that has been 0.

What's the purpose of the lip at the end of the port wall?


Less turbulence?

The port needs at least it's width between the end of the port wall and the wall of the box, and the length wasn't enough, so he had to continue it along the back wall. Helps strengthen the box and make it smaller too.

After a long busy week, I finally got some time to get this one finished. The plexi was engraved on a CNC machine, with the help of my old HS shop teacher. I told him the customer will most likely be putting LEDs in the enclosure, so he recommended we use a "V-Bit". It cuts in at a V angle leaving a very smooth cut, that he said will really show up once light is put behind it. Should look very cool.

The plexi is 3/4" thick. Runs around $25 per sq foot.
