:mad: I just today started making my first ported box and everything was going well, but I had to leave for work and my friend said that he will work on it while I was at work. I got home to find the box almost completely finished, I was impressed at first.....at first. The port diameter is 1.5" whenever I inspected my box it was 1.5" for the first port and then the second port was .5" At first the port was placed in the wrong spot so he moved it, but now there' holes in the bottom of it. I SPECIFICALLY told him to make sure that the chipped end goes on the outside.....of course that's not how it worked out and he put the chipped end on the inside of the box which is part of the port so that should sound really nice also. :verymad::verymad::verymad::verymad::verymad:

There goes hours of work and money down the drain.

just pop the top off. mix up some sawdust and wood glue and fix'er up and then glue that puppy to hell and back. lots of clamps...done. if you sand down or carpet the outside, no signs of you ever doing so.

I'm a huge perfectionist and while it may not be noticable will bug me so bad it wouldn't even be funny......I'm tired of simple stuff made 20x more difficult than it should be because of someone elses mistakes.

It shouldn't take too long to make a regular ported box. An hour or two.

But, if it's your first box (first few, actually), it takes longer. After you build a few, you get into the swing of it and it just becomes second nature.
Hence why every now and then they have a meet somewhere in Texas where they just get drunk and build boxes.

i know what you mean. when most of my stuff gets scratched, i usually sell it as soon as possible and get new. i can't stand scratches and certain imperfections for some reason

Alright maybe I exaggerated the hours wasted part. But time is precious and I don't have too much down time. It's pretty aggravating to have to take out more time from my day to fix mistakes someone else made.

I don't see the big deal, mdf is not expensive.

a true perfectionist wouldnt have left his friend alone to work on it. you'd make sure it was done right and do it yourself.


just patch her up and be done with it.

Actually, they are. lmao, there are pictures somewhere. Boxes look solid.
It's kind of hard to mess up a BOX.

Maybe you shouldn't have made the first mistake of letting your friend finish the box?
Idskot lets see some boxes you've built, seems like you're always talking **** about everyone else' boxes?

This is the truth, seems like the guy is always downing someone. Not everyone knows as much as you do and maybe you should help instead of just saying how much it *****.

What a shame. Your friend was trying to help you, and all you can do is sh*t talk him behind his back on the interwebs?

Seriously, share a beer over it and learn from both your mistakes. Thats what friends are for!

Lancaster, a bit away from you.

Also we both worked on the box today and we fixed it up and put a CRAP LOAD of silicone on it to make up for the drilled holes and little gaps here and there. I wasn't expecting much at all out of this box, but when we put it in my car.....HOLY CRAP! It's 20x louder than my sealed box was.

So basically....it's all good.:D

Haha funny funny....

I will get pics. as soon as I can it was snowing and raining all day today.

You won't be able to tell anything is wrong with it though, because the top is on and all of the stuff that was "goofed up" is covered.
