Thanks.....The main enclosure is Arauco cabinet grade ply and the port wall is MDF...The mdf is just a little bit easier to kerf than the Arauco......lol....when I am done with my bracing he won't tear it up....lmao

It might not be that bad a bill.
If you ship to Africa or South East Asia, you will pay a lot.

You are right West. This should be around the 200.00-300.00 mark to get it here.

Thanks guys for the compliments....The shipping is all on Caddie.....He called his shipper before I started the build with a size and weight so hopefully they quoted him accurately.....

Sick box! Those letters metal? They look pretty good actually. I didn't think they would at first, generally I prefer a softer look of felt or something like that that has rounder/softer edges, but it definitely came out looking great!

Oh I see now. At first they looked shiny to me. But still a hard material. Regardless, looks good.

The reason they look like they do is I print them off with my printer, glue them to the MDF and take them to the scroll saw....

double 07; Could I plexi both sides showing off the woofers?. I was thinking one window per side. Will it screw up anything? If I wanted to do this, what order should it be done? Any advice ?

Saw your other build, now I'm thinking it. HAHA. Wanna show those Xcons off a bit.

You could probably do a small one upright on each side because there are upright braces on the sides about center ways.........I wish you would have thought of it while I was building I could have incorporated that.....

This box slams hard. Running some Zcons in it until my second Xcon ships out. Long story short, waiting on my SSA order, so my friend let me borrow her Zcons until I get my order.
