Well yesterday I got around to cutting my pieces for the box and today I wont get a chance to glue/screw it till later so I figured I would test assemble it w/o fasteners or glue

It will be around 1.15 Cubes for each sub the port is tuned to 32hz

I forget outside exactly but I think its 34.5x14x13(Ill update with exact later)
The Main port is 2.5" and obviously the secondary ports are 1.25"

Any time I want to paint the winds pick up to atleast 30mph so.... Its sitting outside waiting for tonight to come (and the winds to die off) so I can paint the port.

Got the right side speaker assembly attached today, going to put the back on tomorrow and to make it gank resistant (sorry almost forgot nothing is proof) I picked up some stainless carriage bolts to bolt it through my trunk

Thanks for the comment on the house, its not technically mine although it feels like it, my dad believes in manual labor and since we just moved in December 07 we have enough to spread around

Here are some pictures of the house, most of em are old old cause we now have grass in (on the front and side of the lot)

ALSO whats a good color to match my box I want a darker color for future sub boxes

Looks good... can't wait to get mine done.

So for gank proofing you just attached the box to the trunk before installing the subs?
