So i finally got my box from Atrend. Ordered it back in Dec of 09 and have no idea why it took so long to get it sprayed in lineX but Atrend ended up knocking a $100 for the wait. Sweet!
Ok so here it is. Ported dual chamber and done with 1"MDF all around. then finished with 5 layers of lineX. I dont have the specs with me but this thing is massive and is oversized to fit the HCCA 15.2s. Each chamber built to spec and ports Tuned to 29 and some odd Htz. **** thing sparkles in the sun! lol. well im happy with it and so far the one HCCA paired with a HCCA D5000, Iraggi 300 and Kinetik 2400 sounds insane!! Cant wait to pop in the other sub and batt. Tell me what you guys think since im finding im really not too fond of the wedge bracing and terminal cut out.

Is the motor supported inside by those triangles ? If not I would really suggest something under the motor if those will be firing backwards. HEAVY drivers.

Doesn't look like it, they look as big as the cut out.

i lol'd

the liner looks awesome, i dont like the bracing either though, i feel like thats pretty inefficient seeing most of the flex is going to occur at the center of each board, not at the joints...

I didn't mean to sound confrontational, man.

I was just saying that I think it'll be structurally sound, because 1" mdf is pretty stout.
I don't really think the bracing is too close to the port either.

The OP will find out for himself...

I can't believe you guys don't think 1" mdf, a full partition and extra bracing will be enough. That enclosure looks pretty strong to me...

so would u use 1 layer of 3/4 for those subs? if it wasnt built out of 1" its only 1/4 difference? ... most people here on the forum double baffle thats 1.5"

No, I wouldn't use .75" mdf for that box. But I think the 1" will be fine considering the full partition and bracing.

Time will tell...

eh. I would have used a double baffle instead of just a 1" board. Bracing in the box wasn't thought out too well considering (like someone above said) that most of the flex will be in the middle of the walls, not the joints. The joints are plenty strong. He should have used 2 or 3 1" dowels or threaded rods IMO

The bracing will suffice just fine, it's just that it could have been done a little better and efficient.
