5.75cf @ 38Hz for a AQ HDC318

Only difference that was made from the design was that he decided to level the floor himself, so the extra stuff you see on the bottom of the enclosure was omitted. This box was also left bare.

Looks like a fairly straight forward build, but perfect construction and attention to detail as always. Its almost too perfect, I think the aliens built it :p:

How do you get your panels so flush? My god, I am starting to loathe my circular saw. I would give anything to be able to cut wood as straight and perfect as you. Is there any way to get my pieces any more accurate with a circular saw?

No problem man. You placed your order just in time, I have allllll kinds of work to do now. Just need to find the time.


And pd8731, straighter cuts can be achieved by using a good table saw.... and of course some practice. ;)

I do some conventional builds now and again. With the original design, it was hard to work in the inset sides. It was being left bare anyways, so the sides werent a big issue.

Although, I do like building with the rabbeted edges better. Lines everything up easier.

I'm thinking about getting one of those metal things that clamp down and give you a straight edge. It would be much less expensive then spending $500+ on a good table saw.

What did it end up weighing when it was done? Wondering how fun this is gonna be to throw in the truck.

BUT, the measurements aren't exact, with a table saw you only make one measurement for all cuts that distance.

Quick question, do the 45's in the corners make a big difference in sound? Always wondered that

I think its one of those things... were everyone will have their own opinion. From what I have read, on the mic, sometimes it helps, sometimes it hurts.
