Rear loading horn design for a member of another forum by the name of dirtrida4eva and his HDC15. Going in the hatch of a Celica so we were working with some space restrictions though it didnt turn out to be an issue.

Request was for good overall output through the range with good low end extension. This enclosure shouldnt have a problem played slowed music, and will still vibrate your face off in the upper ranges.
Will also provide wonderful power handling and better sound over a standard vented enclosure.

I personally love these as there is nothing better than the look of a huge *** port!

Cost depends on complexity of the design normally. You can find my website at TheBoxHouse, Enclosure designs (http://tbhenclosures.com) or clicking the image in my sig.

And as a moot point, this specific design is just like PWK does but half the price, less with the coupon ;)

Edit - Also, I wasnt aware he was a member here- haha.

I wish I had the tools and the skill to make a box like that.

Haha, I believe I am allowed to say that here so.. umadbro?

And Nine - If you have a tablesaw and a router (hopefully standard equipment) you can. If not, bug a neighbor, a local shop, or again - Pro-rabbit :)

I do believe Rabbit would have the best prices, but I dont see why a local shop couldnt build something if you gave them the design plans. Or before I had my tools I went to a place here called M&M lumber, and had them cut my wood. Only cost a few bucks and I knew everything was done right. Check if your local lumber yard will cut for you, we have a "door shop" they do it in.

i gots the big ol table saw. router im sure i can dig one up from somewhere in the shop.lol
and it was too a moderator.haha never again might i say.

now is that horn/interior port on an angle? how would i allign that correctly? or is that listed in the actually blueprint deal.

Yes, it is at an angle. The blueprints tell the story, but only where the port piece meets the front baffle is it angled. This one was 4 degrees if I recall correctly. So instead of the wood making a normal 90* bend, itll be 94. Just run it through the tablesaw set to 4* slant and the rest of the pieces attach normally forming the right angle. They will naturally form the correct angle (and should form the correct measurements and widths) because of this.

Make sense?

pretty much.
itll make more sense, with the whole plan in front of me, and the mdf looking at me.
is this designed for .75" mdf or 1"?

surreal

.75" as standard. Which is fine for such a design.

Get to building.. I want to see pics of this thing.

will do. i might be adjust this plan a bit with a flush mount. i believe it wouldnt affect much?
im waiting for the sub first. not that i get a broken/messed up sub, and have a box done.

Nine: Gotcha.

Dirt: How would you do so? You could technically take the inner baffle out and put a baffle over the front you could cut out for a flush mount. As the design is, and the panels going on top/bottom, the face is only 14.5". Youd have to cut away raw wood then to do so, but its possible.. Just dont cut past 3/4".
