i have the sheetrock and 2x2`s already and was wondering if i could build a frame from 2x2`s and cover them with the sheetrock?? would be better than having to but MDF cause i already have the materials for this way. and i can seal it with sheetrock mud or bathroom caulk AS i have those as well.

thanks in advance.

I don't think Sheetrock could withstand the pressure

Is this a joke? I hope so because that is a horrible idea.
Sheet rock flexes and cracks far too easy, it is porous and will sound like poo.

I say you do it just for the laugh factor. I would love to see a video of a sheetrock box. :crazy:

if you do fill it with water to check port tuning. I think there is a vid out for this procedure someone may have a link.

your box won't be up to fire code unless you use 5/8 sheetrock and steel studs.

Can he use a double hung window to view the rear of the subs?

this reminds me of that guy that used woodchips or some **** to make paste and made a molded pod for his sub in his trunk..

what color are you going to paint it?

Would make a great "home makeovers" show.

No, sheet rock will not work. Despite how heavy it is sheet rock is not sufficiently dense or rigid enough to build a box below resonace frequency. The box will just rattle like hell and low bass notes will travel right thru the walls and cancel out as if there was no box.

Buy a sheet of MDF. If you call around to several places for the best price you can probably get one for less than $20, or if you just don't have the skills you can order a prefab box that is made from MDF.

haha, well i just have to say that you want to use a high quality joint compound, with a mesh tape.

all good sub boxes are made from material that you can cut to size with a razor blade
