the back of it is just a bunch of wood glue to make sure it was sealed as I have a tendancy of putting wood glue on every place where the box comes together. came out pretty good tho and made a huge difference than the little prefabbed box i had in there before.... lol remember carpet will be put on either tuesday or wednesday, and i'm gonna get pics of the sub installed in it when i get it carpeted.

port is 3" x 13.5" .... i just found out from NJack2AF that Concept audio (which is right down the road) has a TL that i can get metered on for 15$. Think i might have to do that sometime soon.

lol i predrilled every hole i put a screw in. i thought the pilot holes were big enough but guess not. The wood was being extremely gay. it split 2 tiems on the front left (by the port) and once on teh back right.

there is wood glue on every place where the cuts touch eachother on teh inside of the box as well except for on the back, which is why i loaded the back up with wood glue.

the reason it split is because you put that screw so close to the edge of the wood... I like to start ~1.5" in from the edge of the piece so it doesnt split.

lol well i came up with the design but of course with your port expertise :) im pretty happy with out it came out...

amp rack will come at a later date. I really dont have much time to put into it as shcool is still in and i cant slack off with only a week and a half till graduation. Also graduation money is going to my system so there will be a full trunk build-in when that shows up in my pocket.

got to work on NJack2AF's 15 XXX box today... should be around 4 cubes after all the displacements. just gotta make a circle jig to get the hole cutout.

;) It's lookin good, thanks again man! I'm gonna sand some of those rough edges tomorrow if I have time, and maybe put a lil more glue in a couple spots we didn't get so well, like inside the port walls.
