I started this build a few days ago.. I bought some DD coax's from Louisiana_CRX and the next day my mom drives my car and totals it. Going to take those pictures in a minute. Seeing as I had no place for the speakers and my room is stereoless... I decided to build some towers.

Here one of the two stands (Nothing is painted or primed yet)

this is the underside of the stand... I routed a line for the speaker wire.

Here is the enclosure that I will mount on top of each stand. It's 8" PVC with .75" caps on each end. Not MDF because I'm broke right this sec, but it's decent wood. I know PVC was a bad call sound quality wise, but after cutting 7 .5" MDF rings and realizing I was only 1/8 of the way done I just called it quits. I'm looking for a way to deaden the PVC as I'm confident there will be plenty of resonance. Suggestions? http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac219/Jaredturpen/P2280091.jpg http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac219/Jaredturpen/P2280093.jpg http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac219/Jaredturpen/P2280092.jpg http://i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac219/Jaredturpen/P2280096.jpg Comments? Constructive criticism is always appreciated..

I think I'm going to buy this to get me by until I can afford a nicer car. Wall with 4 12" RE MTs sound good??

I'm not sure it's totaled, but it's going to be DAMMMN expensive to fix that. It tore a ton of **** up and the hood is dented filthy. She is at fault 100% and we stopped paying for full coverage about a month ago so we get $00.00 for repairing it.

Luckily I had taken out my amp and subs a day before so none of that was damaged. :)

Wont be totalled, you could fix that with aftermarket hood/lights/bumper/fender for under a grand, another $500 to paint both. Or take some time and find pieces that are the same color

The radiator is torn off as well as the shocks and other stuff.. I'm not at all sure what I'm saying, but there is a shitton of bent metal under there. I love that car so totaled is not an option. I'll fix it if it's worth more than a new one no doubt.

The radiator could still be good it just got disconnected by the looks of it so check that. It didnt go deep enough to get into your suspension. I doubt itll take you more than 1 weekend of work to fix it all and a few weekends overall since you will likely need to order parts.

I'm a year younger than you and my job only pays for subs and gas :( luckily I won't need either if I don't fix it. But I DIDN'T WRECK THE CAR! And the woman says she isn't going to pay ****.

Anyone have any Idea how I can mount the enclosures onto the tower and make it look clean?? I'm a bit confused as to the best way to do this.

Jaredturp

Yeah I'm bringing it to the shop on Monday.. After my inspection it's not as bad as I thought.. Needs a new panel bumper hood and front shock absorbers (Those things that protect in a crash)

so the stand is going to serve as a port? Would sound nice :)

Jaredturp
03-06-2010, 11:48 PM
The plan was to clog the stand, but I wasn't thinking about that. ??Maybe that would work? The pipe is 2" and the enclosure is like .22 cubes.. The stand is 32" long.. That's gotta be tuned LOW if I don't clog it...
Anyone wanna calc this out for me?

Jaredturp
03-07-2010, 12:17 AM
I calculated it.. The thing is tuned to 33 if I leave it at this length.. I may cut the pipe and suspend it over the bottom section so that it is tuned correctly.. Good idea??

supermaxx123
03-07-2010, 03:08 PM
i would say tune to 55-70hz.

Jaredturp
03-07-2010, 05:42 PM
Is 2" pvc enough port area?

supermaxx123
03-09-2010, 03:54 AM
for 6.5" more than enough, aren't these smaller? its enough

Sorry about the car but that's not totaled ! As soon as you get it fixed put full coverage insurance back on it. It could save you money in the long run as you are finding out.

Yeah if I ever get it fixed I will do that. I was under the impression that it had full coverage.... until the crash... But the reality is it will be a long time until I can start getting it fixed. Unless any of you niqqas want to buy 2 12" RE MT's with purple cones. :)
