3.4 cubes at 38hz

Box is for a Audioque HDC3 15" on a Kicker SZ1500
Going in a hatch Integra, that is the reason for the CRX style box.

These should save ya a bunch of time d-REW or if anyone else wanted to make a similar box.

Hopefully d-REW will post finished pics as he is doing all the build work, I simply designed it. Pretty basic, yet solid box. Best of luck.

Box is on the small side for the power he has, so if he has room I'd go for 4cubes or bigger...

Looks good. Just curious, what program is that for the cut sheet? Is it integrated in Google Sketchup? (Haven't gotten around to playing with it yet)

Nope its a seperate program you just plug in the dimensions and it will lay them out for ya and everything its real nice, theres tons of programs that will do it but I like "Cutlist plus"

I know Mike I would have done almost another cube but I literally went to the absolute maximum measurements I was given.

What-up Drew, I would personally tell ur buddy to let it go at least a half an inch bigger each dimension and use 2 street duty 12s or DC audio Lev 3 12s I think he would like the output better in a hatch on that power, and in that airspace.

Brace that vent good. Boxes with ports like that have a tendency to break. I would even go to the point of cutting a single piece to make that port into a T-Vent. And if you cant do that put a piece of dowel rod from the top plate to the vent and glue the **** out of it maybe even fiberglass the inside if you have the time and extra cash.

I was actually looking for a cutsheet program and stumbled upon that exact program. I'm fiddling with the demo version right now. Did you buy the registered version and if so, how much was it? This is a real nifty program :D

hmm not a bad idea ill see what i can do i used screws on the sides to make sure it holds till it dries im already glassing the seams inside the box.

A brace could still be put in under the port wall but I think for it being 3/4" mdf and this size of a box it should be fine.

Oh yah i actually wasn't including johns box, i forgot. But yah it was built ******.

I just wouldn't take the chance drew you can always put it in in the first place but not after ****'s already fvcked.
