Here is the deal

I'm new to car audio and bought a design from someone here ( un named) however when i took my mdf to a local cabinet shop they couldn't really understand his cutsheet and wanted more info.


Can someone whip up a 3-d cut sheet of this along with bracing?


Here is what i have dimension wise , The cut angle is 81 degrees

32'' x11'' top piece

32'' x 13'' bottom piece

13 ''x 14'' left side piece

30.5''x 14'' ( leave a tad long on the 14'' here) Back piece

12.25''x 14'' right side piece

31.25'' x 14'' front baffle 1

32'' x 15.5 front baffle 2

i got the one from madisound but not sure how to tune it , was told to cut off a inch from it but thought about asking you guys.

I'd just do it out on paper, but I have a hard time deciphering my own notes/writing.... you'd never make sense of it.

IMO if you got JUST that and no blueprints with proper indication of which edges need what angles you got hosed. I hope you didn't pay more than 1$ for that.

paid 10 dollars for it , and a guy who owns his own wood shop and knows his shiz nit doesn't really understand the notes and wants everything to be perfect as its 50 bucks a hour shop rates and 30 for a sheet of mdf

Thinking of just using jl's design for the 13w7 , however i already ordered a 4'' areo port from madisound and with shipping it was 50 dollars so clearly i want to make use of it.

First of all there are free designs on this website for a plethora of different volumes/hertz.

Second, not really sure what is so hard to understand about those cuts?
Don't know how much more you can elaborate on a 32"x11" top piece, it is 32" long by 11" wide and it goes on top.

What is the "cut angle of 81 degrees" about?

You shouldn't need to have a 3-D picture to put it together. Are you putting this together or is the cabinet place?

If you gave them the same info you gave us, find a new cabinet shop.

Well i was told that by the guy who runs the place so i guess i will pick up my mdf in the morning and either change the design.

The box is a wedge shape so it fits snug in with my back seats and saves space , thats the whole reason i spent 10 on the guys plans and secondly another 50 on a areo port.

I'm thinking of just using this plan and putting in the areo port , will that work?

Go to the specs portion of the page to see their ported box which isnt that bad

I think this is right. It wasn't very hard to read.

the guy at the shop said that too , i am thinking it is a typo also.

Unless that extra 3/4 inch has something to do with the 2nd front baffle?

Otherwise the box wouldn't be flush it would be off that 3/4 inch on the whole side. Yes it would really seem like its a typo

No typo, the right side is 3/4" shorter so the back piece goes in behind it, so you can screw the back into the right side from the back. The left side is screw from the side into the back. the first front baffle goes in between the left and right side and then the second baffle covers the first. lol maybe

LOL I drew it wrong. The back was supposed to slide in behind the right side. Of you make the right and left side the same size then reduce the back by 3/4".

It should be more like...

32'' x11'' top piece

32'' x 13'' bottom piece

13 ''x 14'' left side piece

30.5''x 14'' ( leave a tad long on the 14'' here) Back piece

13''x 14'' right side piece

31.25'' x 14'' front baffle 1

32'' x 15.5 front baffle 2

Here is the box design using the original diminsions. I had to redraw it since I did it wrong the first time. There are shots from the left and the right.

You can see the left side extends all the way back to the rear and the right side stop 3/4" from the rear so the back can extend all the way to the edge. Either design will work though.

Forgive me for trolling here but....

The main problem here is not the box...you bought a JL product.
