The box doesnt look that good as I cut the pieces myself and didn't have access to a squaring tool or anything. The box is completely sealed on the inside with wood glue / silicone so I don't really care how it looks. This subwoofer has the best SQ I have heard out of any subwoofer, if the RE XXX and Brahma are supposed to be compared to this I think I would have to cry.

I'm real wierd about sealing boxes. If there are 2 pieces of wood going together in a certain spot, its getting siliconed / wood glued.

Im still a bit dumb on boxes here, so i have a question or two. Why did you make sort of a winding path for a port, and not just a straight one?

req

how can you make a straight port thats 30 inches long (or whatever his is) when the box is 15 inches deep (not actual numbers he uses)

so you gotta bend the port around to fit the correct length to achieve the tuning and SQ you are looking for. generally the lower the box is turned, the higher sound quality you will recieve. this is not always true, but is a general statement.

this is exactly the sub I wanted. I wanted great SQ and this thing gets loud enough to hold me over. i have 4 test tones on a cd 35hz - 50hz (+5 Hz increments) to burp it when a ricer comes up blasting the bass tubes. it was almost like a completely different sub when i turned on the 40Hz test tone. the audiobahn was a little louder, more or less because it was in a 3.2 @ 36 Hz lol. but the 'bahns SQ doesnt even compare, my farts sound better then the flame q.

oh and thanks to monte_carlo97 for helping me set my gains... we kinda traded services.. Since I didn't have a volt meter and he did, and he had no idea about digital cameras and I do, we worked out a deal. Monte hopefully your girl likes the camera. he's a funny guy, almost a copy of me except he drinks and i blaze holla!.

I see...how do you measure the port length, right down the center? Does it matter where the port comes out, behind the driver, next to it, diagonal from it?

I dont think it matters where the port comes out, I have seen people with slot ports coming out from under the sub with it facing up, on the left or right of it. I have heard people say you really need to have your port facing the same way as the sub is firing but I'm not sure if it makes much of a difference.

The port length is measured right down the middle.

lol supa, i noticed but I didn't want ot make a 1k post thread and have someone say "Do you want an internet cookie?" or something.

lol I might put it on later... It was just really really cold and I didnt have the time or patience to cut another baffle after i messed up on the first one by cutting it a 1/4" too short. I might throw one on there in the spring, but I plan on fiberglassing a ported box for the new mags when they come out.
