when using caulk, or any type of sealer inside and outside of your box on those fine cracks, MUST you smooth it out to a well rounded amount? My one friend said if you do that the bass reflects better in the enclosure, but then again sometimes he's just talking nonsense:banghead:, so help me out guys. thanks

i guess what i really want to know is if it will still sound great even if some of the caulking is bunched up at certain areas?

about that theory, if you do have uneven grooves, and by theory break up standing waves, would that be a good or bad thing?

Uhhh, breaking up standing waves would be a good thing ...

But it wouldn't make a difference in a sub box because the wavelengths are too long.

duh oh **** my bad :banghead:

Yes, Standing waves create a "loud bump" in your frequency curve. This is not good for listening to music. But may be helpful if you are an SPL compeditor and are trying for a certian frequency.
