View Full Version : Street Beat Box Build

06-29-2008, 03:55 AM
Well... I woke up this morning and decided that I was gonna build a box for Street Beat for my MA AUDIO HK12x2s to use at the Longview Show ( July 28th ). i was also goin' to use my SPL box @ the show. I ended up not goin' to that particular show ( I was done in time, just didn't feel like making the 2hr. drive ).

.... I went out to Lowes, their d*mn cutting machine was jacked up.... So I had to cut...
... Everything would have been fine until my Skil saw f*cked up... So that left me to cut EVERYTHING with my Jig saw. Talkin' about pi$$ed

I have a couple of pictures, It took a total of 3 1/2 to 4hrs. It was a simple box build, just was ticked off from everything! So it took me a minute to calm down.

Now for the pictures!
Enclosure: 7.08ft3 @ 32hz


... You're goin' to have to excuse me for some of the uneven cuts ( Still pi$$ed about the skil saw f*cking up on me ).

But overall - The sound is RIDICULOUS! Hits low & loud... pretty much what I'm aiming for this time...

Just thought I'd share my day with you all.... let me know what you think. All comments, negativity, etc. is welcomed...

PS - I'll post a video or 2... ( I just took my Fat Mat off the trunk lid about 4 days ago, goin' with the newer Fat mat - plus it was getting old - trunk sound UGLY... but pressures great... Hoping for 144+ w/ 1800rms @ .5 street beat... I got 146.7 with my other box @ the kick.

I'm sure it was predrilled before hand...to prevent that.....

the mdf still split

not predrilling will cause splitting and to many screws to close will also cause splitting

on a side note what are the specs on the box?

port area?

I could have sworn I seen light coming from the upper top right, which means it will leak. I don't know if it is me or not, but looks like it. \

NM, it looks like the caulk ozzing out, lol!

I still think it looks pretty nice...a little carpet or fleckstone...It will look pretty sweet....

Carpet to match my interior...
.. I thought about fleckston though.

Yeah, I predrilled... But it was due to the number of screws... And too close to the edge.
... About the caulking thing... LOL! I know, I got caulk crazy ( Plus clear silicone )
BUT! The enclosure doesn't leak any air. ( Thanks for my overkill on the caulk ).

It hits hard on 1800rms @ .5... But I am lookin' for more power though.
... Maybe a kx2500/zx2500 ... * cough - Dave's Z1a - cough * .... :D

... 38"W x 23"D x 14"H
Port is 6"W x 12.5"H x 29"L
... It's ~ 3.91 ( 4cuft internally ) after port & sub displacement..
Tuned ~32hz - 33hz
