what saw do you use to cut the slits in the wood? I want to try a flared port but don't know if I have the right equipment. Or if there's a tutorial around here you could point me to that'd be great.

Great box by the way

yea its 3" of wasted space, it might make a good amp rack on the side when i try another one, maybe ill do up a tutorial, took me only a few hours to build it

whats everyone charging now-a-days for box prices, not blueprints or sketchups, but box size, ported, sealed, etc etc

it depends on how much work is into it.....a simple box that takes a few
hours to make is worth alot less than one that takes a few days

all depends on the attention to detail

Nice box, it does look oddly familiar to Thumpper's box's, nothing wrong with that though :)

hey guy, nice work, glad to see another canadian on here...i was wondeing if i can get you to help me with q flare question, im debating on trying one out

the only question i have is when you do the flare on the side of the box how do you determine how far in and how far in from the front of the box?

example, 3 inches in from the front and then 3 inches in from the side, to make a nice radius curve?

any tips would be awesome, if now ill go out and do some trial and error

Thank alot

Nice work

Depends on the radius you want to get. 10 cuts spaced a half inch a part gets a 3.5" radius. That is what I typically use.
