Alright well I am doing my second box build and I want it to be perfect. I got the wood cut by home depot I wasnt going to but the guy did a really good job all the cuts are right on the dot. Now I need ring terminals (what are the best kind to get?) and carpet. I have no clue how much to get? Any suggestions?

Also can anyone explain how to put the carpet on there?

The carpet you want is automotive carpet, you can buy that at any autoparts store, just ask for it. Its the same stuff they use for lining trunks and what not.

Do you three yards of the automotive kind will be enough for a 15 inch single ported box?


Demisnons roughly 26x27x15 high

I wanted to order 4 to be safe but I only have enough in paypal to order 3

Any one have more tips on how to carpet the box? Anything I should know? Also what kind of adhesive spray should I use?

3M super77 spray adhesive. Spray the box and the carpet, let it tack up for a minute or two and stick it on. I always line up the carpet with no glue and make some reference marks on the back of the carpet so it is easier to line it up once the glue is ready. Use a sharp knife for the cuts and try not to bleed on the carpet..
