Anyone ever line their box with DuRok or Hardy Rock boards ?
Was wondering if that would make a diff. since I see people talking about lining/building boxes out of concrete and such.?

you want the inside to be as smooth as glass. people use concrete for strength and it is usually sandwhiched between layers of wood...

I've used concrete for both actually. Did a concrete wall once for a buddy of mine, and was doing crazy numbers with ****** speakers.

So would DuRok work for changing the wave form in the box? or would doing straight concrete be better? Just trying to figure out some things if I ever decide to do some competing and figuring out lightest over heavest way to go with some of these things.

Durock has a lot of air and Styrofoam in it. I don't think it would be the best material to line a box with.

If I decide to actually compete... Yeah, I will go full all out.. Only reason I haven't started yet is because I don't feel like getting into my savings account. Over the past 15 years of just daily systems and stuff I've spent more than enough to buy a very nice house with lol...

Why do you need to do that? Just fiberglass / resin it.

ive just used resin on the inside of alot of my boxes, it drys smooth and hard. Only down fall to doing resin on the inside of the box is you smell it FOREVER inside your vehicle lol

i saw one guy get really creative doing 45s, he would tilt the box a certain way and poor a ***** load of resin in the crack and basically his 45s inside his box were all resin lol, kind of a waste of money but i thought it was pretty cool

I have just finished a fibreglass box, and yeah it smells! But I have built a sealed box, and I'm wondering if you know weather any fumes left in the box could affect the sub?

they do make pourable concretes, and sound deadening concretes. if you really wanted to try something and not spend that much. I would put down a hush mat, staple mesh to that and then pour in leveler. do a side at a time and it would be solid. Durock would crumble inside a speaker box. A 2 part flexible mortar would be your best bet.
