comments welcome, going to FG the rear of the box and the front of the box.

Right now I have made my rings at 16 " , I will cut the 11 1/4 " cutout for the sub in the bottom ring with the dato cuts, then I plan to step cut the other 2 rings, Fill the steps in with FG, except for a 1/4 lip I will leave on the top #3 ring which I will use to mount a custom speaker grill I have plans in my head for.

Probably going to use some expended steel, sand blast and powder coat it, then have a custom polished aluminum retaining ring made to hold the grill in place.

This box will be ported when im done, I am aiming for 2.5 Cubes after displacments, I plan on fabricating a Interchangable port system for it.

The box will house 1 12" Fi Q w/ BP power option

WHen you cut the hole for the sub will that lip cause any problems?

WHen you cut the hole for the sub will that lip cause any problems?



Are you refering to the dato cuts on the ring? If so no they will not,

Its hard to tell in the picture but my blank there is 16" across and my sub is only 12 " so there is going to be no clearance issues at all.


FYI I toasted that blank in the pictures when I got home from work today. 12 hour shift + tape measure + power tools = disaster. I cut the hole to small. somehow or another my 11 1/8" hole ended up being a 10" hole. I think I measured to the wrong side of the router bit.

BUT I went ahead and used one of the other blanks and got my first mounting ring cut. I will attach it tomorrow, and then if I don't get a hurricane up my butt I shall start to glass.


But im going to end up with a tton of rain no matter what so the project might have to get put on hold due to humidity

I dont really like the look of that joint on your box. seems prone to failure from the get go.

Id recommendd breaking it sand it down then drill some holes and run carriage bolts + tons of glue.

If thats not an option id dato that one board so you have more than one surface glued.

Yeah I'm new to box building so I have no experience with bracing. The box is only 1.3ft^3 so I figured this would help a little bit. I'm sorry man I have no idea what a dato or carriage bolts mean.

No worries, everyone has to start somewhere and shame on me for picking on your project. At least you posses the testicular fortitude to attempt it yourself.

After you finish that one the stuff you learn will become invaluable in your next project

Updates,

So I stretched some fleece, many staples, and half a gallon of resin later and I got the first layer on the back of my box done. I sure hope the second third and forth layers that are actual 1.5 oz chopped mat dont use so much resin. ecause I only bought one gallon LMAO !!!


Anyways what you're all here for PICTURES !!!!!

sorry we had to point that out.
You gotta staple the fleece all the way through those U joints to clear the rear body cutout.

might be able to cut it out with an air-saw after it cures and just redo the areas in the U joint. personally, i would scrap the back wall FG, replace the flat areas with MDF and just FG the U areas. i know it ***** to hear about mistakes, but better to do it right the first time and not later down the road.

I didn't make any mistakes but thanks for assuming you know more about my project than I do. I intentionally glassed over the channel, as you will see in future updates I plan to cut it out and glass the inside of the trough.

Simple enough, I didnt use MDF on the front or back because I need the space I gain by useing fiberglass.


Any other questons? Its hard to put my minds eye into thoughts but I know where im going and how to get there.

constructive criticism:

wouldnt it have been easier to staple the fleece down in the notch the first time rather than going back and cutting it out and stapling more fleece down then putting more resin on it? seems like that is doing the same thing again.

but all in all it looks like it is coming together quite nicely.

twistedmind
07-24-2008, 01:44 AM
sorry fo snapping just been a bad week with the urricane and not working etc etc.

Anyways, no I tried for hal a hour to get the fleece down into that channel and I couldn't get it without tons of bunching. My saple gun is also a antique ( read HUGE ) so I couldn't staple the channel the way it would have needed to be done to get a proper fit.

So, now that its 90% dried I went out and cut the channel, tomorrow im going to go back through the channel with 1.5 oz chopped strand matt, and get the channel secured and a test fit done. if everything is good ill start on my second layers of glass and reinforced braces.


Once again im sorry for being crabby peeps just been a bad week.

I like it and I like all the pics you took, but don't be so sensitive about criticism. It's negative most of the time because saying positive things are white noise. The phrases "good job", "keep up the good work", and "nice" just don't really seem necessary to me. There's gonna be enough of that already. Most people try to leave critical comments because they see something that could be better.

Now hurry up and finish it, I want to see the final product. ;)
