i have 3 12's but for some reason one is seized so i sent it in.

i made it out of mdf

only the front is painted cause i didnt think u would be able to see the top and also i was just trying to see how it looked with a white front

this is the first box i built, for some reason when i test fitted it all together it went together square but when i put it together again and screwed it it wasnt sqaure anymore, also the liguid nailer was not willing to co operate and it all blew out the back of the gun. but im impressed for my first box i used a circular saw and a jig saw that is all o and a drill

...its just not pretty lol.. take ur time ..predrill holes i can see a crack in the white. easy with the wood glue next time you only need a small bead of glue..maybe next time carpet it ...or paint the whole box.

that was liquid nails, the tube broke so i had to apply it with my finger. and yea it cracked cause i couldnt find the drill bits. my dad took them to work cause he is a machinist and he needed them for a machine he was workin on. so had to make due. also the woond is only half in thick that is why i had most of a problem. but for my first box i dont think it was bad. i wouldnt mind fiberglassing the front and carpeting the rest still. cause overall it came out good i think

for some reason it dont sound all that great though. i took it back out and the port is 4in wide until it makes its 90degree turn then its 5 in wide.. dont know why but could that make a big difference is sound?

you might have accidentally mixed up the left wall with the right wall or had it flopped in another dirrection that caused it to be out of square the second time.

is this the final product? or is this just a test fit?

BoomCrew

well it was the final, but now its just a test

if it doesnt look good and especially doesnt sound good then my guess would be to recalculate, redesign, and make a new box with some help this time.

It's not about looks, it's all about the sound!

BoomCrew

i just dont understand how i messed up
would that back port wall actually make a big diff in sound?

i dont get why you didn't just use the entire height of the box for the port and make things easy on yourself...you make it look so difficult lol!

Yes, It can ruin the tuning. It needs to be uniform unless you used an equation to allow it to get wider...

The tube of liquid nails split open? You do know there is a foil seal that you need to puncture down the tip...right?
And yeah, it sounds like you need to start over...
