    New Box for the Death Penalty 12

    Well sorry for no build pics guys, but here's some finished ones. I bought a router last week and built the entire box with it, straight edges and all. I'm officially in love with my router. haha.. But anyway, i built a fiberglass box for my truck a few months ago back when i was in high school still, and it did pretty good on the meter (140.0) but i wanted to go a little louder without having to change setups completely. I decided to build a box to go where my center console was. The box itself is 1.9 cubes tuned to 33 hz (made for my new Fi Bl 12 coming in), but i decided to put in the DP for the time being. There was a noticeable difference in the sound and loudness of this box over my other one, but this one will only be used for competitions, or when i don't need a center seat (can't put the GF beside ya when this is in. haha) So i went and got it metered yesterday. Still peaked at 42 hz like my fiberglass box (which is tuned to 36 hz) and did a 143.5 on the TL, and a 145.6 on an AudioControl 170. Very very happy with these scores. Anyways, on to the pictures..












    VID!!

    And before anyone says anything, the box is actually at a very good height for resting your arm. And i can still reach everything just fine.. It does have a problem with sucking things up off the floor (****** half a beach towel into it a couple days ago).

    wow that looks like the perfect setup for that truck, real trick and i bet its loud as hell that close to your head. What truck? Ram? Silverado? I know the rams have tons of center console space.

    Oh yeah, clean *** box too.

    Ah yes, lol. I figured it was since my friend has the same thing, looked familiar and i dont think a box that big would fit there in any other trucks but yes, that steering wheel does give it away

    Im all about carpeted but Ive never carpeted or painted any of my boxes lol, just too lazy

    Yeah it's a Ram 1500. You can barely see the fiberglass box right behind the seats, but it's 2.4 cubes with a 6 inch aero tuned to 36 hz. It gets **** low, even lower than this box.. I might wrap it in vinyl when i get the time, but it's just for comps so i'm not too worried about it. I'll make another video when i get my Fi Bl 12 in next week sometime, when i'm not studying for finals.. Thanks for the compliments tho guys.. I thought a 143.5 with 1 sub in a regular cab truck was fairly decent.. Haha.
