2. Sub and Port on Same plane
3. Sub Forward - Port side

edit: pics added

wood cut

just making sure it all lines up, some of the wood wont stand up straight but cuts are pretty **** good!



08-27-2008, 12:52 AM
both on the same plane.

08-27-2008, 12:53 AM
subs and port same plane...rear fire....

Ok, I was just worried because the port seems kinda close to the sub. Does that seem like a problem? Im a better builder than designer:laugh:

edit: added pics up there

rear wall not glued in get just sitting there with the angle brackets




I would have done more work but it seems that i have run out of screws :mad:
Off to find the missing box!:laugh:

so i found a new way of sinking in screws nice and deep. The standard countersink bit works just fine when your not gonna be running a round over bit at 12k rpm right over it...

I forgot to take a pic but its the hole bits that are used for drilling out door lock bolts and such, just a really tiny one. Ill get a pic later but thanks to the member that gave me the idea on hear earlier.

some higher quality pics to come later on. Those last one are from my palm centro, not to shabby for a camera phone i guess

im pretty concerned with how the sides(carpet) came out... definitely not to my liking.
everything other than that came out just fine!

Oh u mean tucking it into the slits?
That takes a good bit longer, It should have come out fine but i guess i messed with it to much... looks better after glue dried up and cant see it when its deep in the trunk anyway. Doesn't sound to bad for a single 10 though.

its going into a buddies mustang

Ah shoot i forgot to take a pic with the sub in it, o well.
Were prolly gonna redo his whole setup in due time.

good, solid constuction but your carpet needs work IMO

yeah box is solid as hell, those screws got it all nice and tight.

Ive never been known for carpeting enclosures, its only my 2nd but i know i can do better with more practice.

i lik it
nice job
if its any conselation, i cant even build...mostly cuz of lack of tools though

With the way the box sits and the nitrous bottle next to it, the sides won't be seen. However, I know how craftsmen are about doing things right regardless...I'm the same way..

I was EXTREMELY pleased with this box, and the price which can't be matched anywhere..

If you want to get some pics man I can take them for ya and send them over to you..

And yea, I'll be having you do my amp racks ect.. oh. and you may have some work for something non-audio related, if you're up to it..

Overall the one 10 sounds better then my 3 10s... probably due to the amplifier, the last box was completely solid, but it fit into the car very well, until i took the spare tire out.

I wanted to lighten up my load because i do race this car at the track, but seeing as it is a daily driver and i still do some car shows ect i enjoy having a subwoofer back there...

This is better then what I expected.
