Here we go, the box is sealed, dont remember the dimensions, was built to REs dimensions, its a 12" XXX. The box is finished in black laminate. Heres some pics:

My XXX next to one of my old 12" Phoenix golds:

still some sawdust and stuff in the little holes, hopefully the sub will push enough air to move that out :)


well thats it, ill get a pic with it in my trunk when i get it all hooked up. Was my brother and I's first time building a box, i think it turned out pretty well. There was screws every inch, it was liquid nails, and then siliconed, the terminal cups were siliconed as well. Thanks for looking :)

a screw every inch does nothing more than split the wood all the way down it. It looks nice though.

hehe, predrilling it saved you :) one screw every 5 inches is plenty, cheaper, just as effective, and like you said, it gets annoying drilling 987398 holes.

let me know how it sounds when you get it installed

What kind of laminant did you cover that with? It looks nice.

ok, i know people will be tempted to flame, but **** it

predrilling a hole, is that just putting a screw on an electric drill and sticking it in there to make the grooves, so when you actually screw the box together you can do it manually???
i have no handy work experience (at least none in which i cared wether or not i ****ed up what i was making), and plan to make a box soon.

nah...you pre-drill with a drill bit so you dont split the wood when you put the screw in
