    box build for a friend

    i'm still kind of new (this is my second serious box made) the rest were porrly designed sealed boxes that leaked like a garden hose full of holes. Not to mention they weren't planned out right.

    anyways, its a box for a Treo 10.44 SS

    1.3cubes @ 32hz 32 sqin of port.







    my first time attempting to paint/carpet a box.. so be nice. It's not perfect.

    My next box will be for my 10" treo, I'm going to try out a kerf port.

    It sounds **** good for a single 10".. I haven't heard many other setups then my own (2 infinty 1230w in a 3.4cube @ 29hz) before. I have to say for a single 10 off 600~ rms it sounds amazing. It's alot louder then I thought it would be, It's not even broken in yet.

    as long as it sounds good thats what matters. the building and carpet just get better as you go.
    the box itself looks like its put together pretty good

    looks good, but why didn't you carpet the whole box?

    he originally wanted the whole box painted but then changed his mind and asked me to do a fleckstone front with the rest carpeted.

    I think the half and half looks really good.

    Looks great except for the couple splits in the wood.

    What kind/size screws did you use? I predrill with a fairly small bit(3/32) and I have yet to split MDF...I'd suggest using ~1.5" coarse thread drywall screws from HD.
