B. Im looking into my sub and where the sub side view is like this...

there is a very small leak, just enough that wood glue can fix it but its drippy underneath... should i use something else??

Im not looking to compete or be professional just daily use never had subs before... and i found it and i was wondering the performance downfall of this leak? its very small.. what should i do to fix it

Is the leak at the port? If it is big enough for glue to just "fall though", then I would be cautious of the whole enclosure. Sounds like it was not properly put together.


If it is still some what strong(if that is even possible) you can use a silicone based product to seal that edge. I would still shy away from that enclosure though.

Is it a leak in the sub or the box (enclosure?) If its in the box, just use silicone. Squirt a line of it on there then smear it with your finger. Will make it airtight.

what type of silicone?

and its not part of the structure at all, its 110% fully stable

But not properly put together or air tight.. if that is part of the port it is structural lol

Sorry had to do that to ya..but truth is truth...

If you are ok with the enclosure hit up walmart and snag some silicone. All you have to do in this case.

Caulk from the inside and buy some wood filer and put on the outside and sand down to make it look good.

about 5 posts up you can see the blue prints of it and the white pieces are the " supports " of the entire thing, but what do you mean

Man...Get som Gorilla Glue or some Liquid nails, and go over every crack you see.Take that sub out, and do the same inside, and call it a day.Run that enclosure till it falls apart.IMO.Seal that joker inside and out:uhoh:

Gorilla glue does the trick? i sealed it with some wood glue!

Gorilla glue expands in the cracks, so it should seal , and it is an apoxy adheasive that will allow the structure not to seperate.I always use Liquid nails inside, and outside my boxes, to seal with.It is cheaper than Gorilla glue, but it will work too.

The pressure is pushing that box apart,so it needs some kind of apoxy , or ? to keep the box/ joints from expanding, since it wasnt properly sealed, it will hold it together, and it prob wouldnt hurt to go around the box one day and counter sink some SCREWS to hold that box together,
