BB Storm camera FTL!

Well my ears finally stopped ringing after the testing session yesterday, so I was able to listen to it more today. Trying different subs with it as well enabled me to form the opinion that it's a great sounding, beautifully constructed, versatile enclosure with a great deal of output, suitable for many if not most subs out there. Pulling it out of my trunk for testing was easy due to the lip on the sides.

I'm still amazed how musically the pioneer sounded along with the very nice output it had!!

The pioneer was pretty musical. The Team PSI reconed sub wasn't as musical but got down loud. There's not much we can expect from a HC motor though.

I had a headache most of last night. My ears were ringing for a while too.

That's the benefit of having a friend that owns a CNC machine. Plus, it helps to build 2 or 3 identical boxes at one time.

Looks good, but I've never paid for a box. Maybe I should start selling a few myself, I could use the money. :greedy:

You must get ripped off for your stuff cuz carpet is about 5bucks a yard and 2 yards would be enough to do the box. Screw and glue is about right and carpet glue is about 4bucks. :)

Not everybody can buy carpet for $5 per yard. Most shops sell carpet at $10 per yard. Any carpet spray glue peels off over time. I only use contact cement...which is quite costly. You get what you pay for.

Ive been to alot of upholstry shops and most sell it for bout 5bucks a yard. And the Foamlock glue i use i gurantee you wouldnt be able to peel off a box after 5minutes:) But to each its own :) I never had any complaints tho but i know you do good work tuan.

You and I are lucky to be in so cal. There are a lot of wholesalers, suppliers, etc. We can buy everything for a relative cheap price compared to everywhere else in the nation. As far as glue: Foamlock degrades over time. Even 3M 90 works very well at a first approach. But, in about a year or so, you will see difference just like most other glues and adhesives. With contact cement, and proper application of course, the joint is very solid and lasts years. professionals in the industry uses contact cement including upholstery shops. Once you've built hundreds of boxes like me, you will start to see the difference and the long term significance. But then again, for onesies twosies...anything will do.

Ya maybe in other states it is more expensive I wouldnt know tho I never really been out of cali lol. But contact cement works great too tho I can get a gallon for about 20bucks. I used it when I redid a headliner It is better stuff. But My foamlock works good:) And i dont like that 3M 90 stuff, my foamlock is 10x better.

Foamlock is slightly better than the 3M 90. The problem that most people have with 3M 90 is not knowing how to apply it. Proper application is the key. I wasted about 10 cans purely on product application testings. There is a exact set time, relative to temperature, to apply the product. Too early or too late, and the product is useless. This is the same for contact cement. I've had installers tell me contact cement does work. It surely doesn't work when it not put on right. Contact cement used to be $100 for a 5 gallon. Prices rose to $140. Where are you buying it for $20 a gal? I might have to go there.
