    Re: my first ported box

    bump for this kid building his first box himself rather than paying someone to build one for him. this is what DIY car audio is all about!

    whats some specs on the box, any other pics? looks great, just one thing i noticed though. a huge port right against the back hatch. not the greatest for airflow. generally the width of the port away from anything is ideal. but again its good for a first box!

    yeah, right on. pretty dam good for a first timer. practice makes perfect, but still dam good. read a few of the forums on here before your next build. plenty of knowledge here

    subs and ports look a little smothered. But nice job for the first one.
    Hows it sound?

    agreed,if nothing is permanently mounted down yet, slide that box forward maybe even a foot and listen to the difference

    Re: my first ported box

    Looks, great. I'm just getting the wrong impressing because the wood is very messy. At first I thought the boox was just ****.


    Anyway, good job!

    Re: my first ported box

    eh it loks like u used 1/2" mdf id use 3/4 mdf. redo the box to 3.5 cubes net tuned to about 31hz and itll pwn. put a 1/2 double baffle on the top and bracing on each side. 2 cubes for 1 10 is to big IMO.
