Thanks goes out to Moble for the design....This is going to house four SKAR 12" subs....Its going to get two tone carpet (black / heather) with dual SKAR LOGOS on the ends where enclosure is recessed. It's double layer Arauco ply....

Woot! Thank you Double 07. Cant wait to see the magic you perform on this enclosure! Also thank you @moble enclosurs for the awesome design and @Keep_Hope_Alive for the guidance and idea's.

As all audiophiles know, a proper enclosure is the key piece to any system. With that being said I believe I lucked out and was able to pick a few of the greatest minds on CA in order to accomplish my goals. Thanks fella's.

Well Double 07, I plan on still having you do my 4 15" build when I finally get the funds to do it all, and decide if I want Skars, or DD's, looks freaking awesome!

Cool.......You need to plan a ROAD TRIP up here after I build the BEAST and we will help you install it and tune your amp/ amps.......NO EXTRA $ REQUIRED.....But TIPS are accepted.....lol

You know that isn't a bad idea instead of me paying shipping on a box that is going to probably be MASSIVE. Wife keeps bitching about it though.

****. 4 Separate chambers, Double baffle with a flush mount and a curved outer edge on the port in the middle? Pretty sure I've never seen
a box design quite like this. I'm going to have to ask mobile what's up. Excellent work double 07, can't wait.

The upward firing subs & ports were based on ideas and guidance given by Keep_Hope_Alive, as well as the 4 chamber (to ideally achieve perfect coupling of wavelengths given that each sub to port to cabin distance is the exact same traveled as opposed to a rear firing port where the wavelengths from 2 subs would always be longer than the other 2). These few details were given to Mobile and this was the end result. Personally I am very happy as to how the design turned out and I knew Mobile would have the creative touch to achieve my goals.

Btw, Loving it Double.. 1000 thank you's!!

Kinda bugs me that the ports aren't flush with the rest of the box...oh well. Looks nice all carpetted up.

@double 07 I never see the use of wood clamps in any of your work. May I ask why? I would think the wood clamps would make sure
the seal of wood glue is bound much more tightly/securely by the pressure of holding the boards together while they dry. Thanks.

I make accurate cuts.....I use good tight bond glue and my screws are put into a pre-drilled properly sized hole while the glue is wet.......I don't need clamps.....I have been building enclosures since 1989 and have always done it this way........The SCREWS are my clamps.....lol

looks nice except the design IMHO... nice job building it and carpeting etc. BUT the way the ports do not sit flush would bug the hell out of me, being a builder myself.

Yeah that port thing is strange looking........I am just the builder this time......I played NO HAND in the design!!!...........lol.........
