Hey guys im gonna build a sealed box for an alpine Type R i just ordered today. I understand how to do it all. Ive built a double box with a friend before. I just need to know if weather stripping is the best to use around where u put the sub in. Or if theres something else u can buy? or do I even need weather stripping? I'm thinking yes on the second one. I looked at those Qlogic boxes and they coem with weird rings... that supposedly act like a sealent thing. Any thoughts or ideas on how to seal it up well?

a lot of subs come with a foam ring you stick around the hole.

Weather stripping would work probably 1/4". But when i had a sealed setup I never used it. Box was still air tight. :D

alright then.. Ill check for those rings.. if the sub doenst come with one then i think ill still do weather stripping because if i find out its not air tight i dont want to have to do xtra work and take my sub off and then weather strip and put it back on.

the accesories a sub comes with has nothing to do with price. the sony xplod 10" i had for my bs system came with screws and a complete gasket. my idmax didn't come with screw and i had to piece together the gasket. after removing it a couple of times to do work on boxes, switch to another box ect. it came apart. it also got squished so thin it seams useless.

if you cut the hole properly, you should have no sealing issues.
