OD = 10h x 12d x 18w

Cuts kinda depend on how you put it together though. But (2) 16.5" x 11.25", (2) 16.5 x 9.25 and (2) 12 x 10's would do it.

I assume its in order as top/bottom, front/back/, sides?? Just need a rectangle box just plain as hell.

Yeah. I guess for simplicity's sake you could just do (2) 18 x 12's, (2) 18 x 8.5's and (2) 12 x 10's.

That way, you just sandwich the front/back between the top and bottom and slap on the ends.

Half inch mdf good for 8's only sharing a good 300watts. Weight is of some issue as well as cost. No its not for me for a co worker.

I would think so. That changes the dimensions a bit though. Box will have a bit more airspace with 1/2" and the same dimensions. Doubt it matters a ton. Lol.



Be warned... 1/2" is a pain in the nuts to get a screw into.

Yea its for 2 infinity 8's so he knows he want be beating no blocks down so the slight change in cf should make lil to no difference. I planned on just using clamps to hold it till it dries. Seems to wrk for me. Thx alot taylor..

That box won't weigh much, I'd stick with 3/4". Made one of similar size for my 8's with 3/4 ply and it's really light.

Being he only has 300rms from a RF 301s we are going with one in a 1cf ported box and selling the other to help cover cost of wirse and whatnot...

also for future reference, you could you the12volt.com, go to sub box calculator. and put in your dementions with thickness of wood. it will tell you your volume! :)

Tru but being this forum has been dead for months whats one more useless thread?? Should I have asked if my kicker comps would pair up nice to my boss 3000watt amp?? Would that make it worthy??

Don't they teach you kids anything in school these days? If you can't handle dimensions for a sealed box you really should find a new hobby...maybe coloring with crayons
