    I guess I can understand that, with it being you 1st box and having it laying around.

    Re: first box build

    is it glued?? my first ones didn't look any better than that, but then I didn't have the resources available then that we all do now (pre-internet).... for the most part, you're not doing that bad with it, make sure you glued the panels good, seal it well and see how it works.... that's the funnest part, seeing what works and what doesn't... IMHO for a first one that ain't horrible, I've seen ALOT worse...

    Am only 30.... I started building boxes for Home Audio stuff when I was 13.... living in a small town the Internet wasn't available until i was about 15 or 16 and the public library didn't have any books on the subject so aside from a little help from some older friends I was self taught....

    Re: first box build

    That puts my first box to shame. Then again, I was in 8th grade when I made it

    Either way, don't use that plywood for enclosures any more. It's not dead enough for a plywood and is useless for speaker enclosures since it warps and has voids. Use MDF or 7+ oak or birch ply instead.
