    box for Focal 13" sub

    Focal 33v1 subwoofer box. very efficient sub. highest recommended enclosure is 1.4 cubes tuned to 37hz. this one ended up 1.5 at 36hz. a little off, but it shouldn't be a big deal in a DD. things went wrong from the start. circle cutter for the router broke, so i had to do the cutout by sight. the guide on my saw got bent when i dropped it. didn't notice until i cut a sheet of mdfbut it's done on time. pushed it a little close.









    in hindsight. i would not put lacquer on it. looks better without a gloss finish.

    i'm disappointed a little at how it looks with a gloss finish. it's a textured paint, so i should've known better.

    never got to hear it ported but I have been told they do better in a small ported box vs a large one.

    lacquer *****. you did right. if you get a tight enough bond at your seams, not much work is required other than a primer coat. textured paint covers everything. i just touch up a little here and there with either wood glue mixed with saw dust or spackle (if it's a small blemish).

    Yea I'm an auto body guy.....I went a little overboard on the prep for the texture paint. I didn't think it would have as much texture as it did.

    With all the prep work I did I could have got out my hlvp and got a nice finish...lol

    gloss finish is tough. if you have a good table saw, doing 45 degree cuts makes it alot easier. almost labor free if you use a roundover on the corners. my table saw *****, so getting accurate cuts and a 45 is hit or miss.
