Very detailed work, sir. Nice job.
But did you add resin or anything to that bend next to the port to stiffen it up?
I would think that it will blow out if not :confused:

Yes, he puts resin in it. That's why he drills the holes in the kerf to allow air bubbles to release.

Beautiful box once again thumpper.

I use the holes to take advantage of
capillary attraction..the resin gets drawn in thru the
slits and the air bubbles come out thru the holes...
this ensures that the kerfs are 100% filled and rock
solid once the resin cures....

by the time I am done with the Kerf it is stronger than the MDF itself

Once again a nice box for sure. Your attention to detail and clean cuts have become your signature. I have two NIB 10" L5 that may have found a reason to be installed after seeing this enclosure!

Beautiful enclosure man! ONe question,how do you keep the excess glue from showing from around the joints? Do you just sand it down?

I don't know how he does it but you can just wipe it off with a wet rag while it's still wet.

How'd you do those round edges? I'm... I'm baffled.

And is that vinyl stickers? Or paint+stencil?

I love the mix of paint and carpet you usually do. I've never seen better looking boxes than you build.:)
