    Re: Sundown Audio Nightshade 18'' -- AQ2200 >> Truck Build

    How should I make the flares for the port? Does it NEED them? I read it makes it more efficient. I will eventually go to aeros probally, but for the time being what can I do?

    Re: Sundown Audio Nightshade 18'' -- AQ2200 >> Truck Build

    Lol so i remebered seeing a thread a guy posted where he made his flares for his sonotube. He might have had platic plates. Well I just made some ghetto fabulous flares out of some paper plates. I doubled 'em up and glued the hell out of them. Worth a try? Will be getting aeros in the future.





    Hit a curb last week...




    gotta love the work truck

    i was like paper plate FTW! but yea they dont NEED to be flared but its always helpful. i have built a coule boxs with just pvc pipe and sanded the edges and it sounded **** good. looking good so far man. glad u decided to tackle this box on your own. thats how i got started a long time ago, just dive into it and learn as you go. good job man

    the paper plates would probably work if you put some resin on them

    thanks heath, i've gotta start somewhere. its coming along nicely, just got the cut out made for the sub and it fits good. Heres a pic of a little mock up. The port will be coming out of the top. Going to clean up some cuts..



    Just picked up some threaded rod as well.

    Great progress man. I hated making wedge boxes...the angle on the front baffle was always a pain.

    Re: Sundown Audio Nightshade 18'' -- AQ2200 >> Truck Build

    Another question..

    I used this box calculator http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/boxcalcs.asp

    When I put the side peices on should they go flush into it or should I just slap it over the baffle and all the sides. If I did that, then my total length would have 1.5'' added to it. Kinda confused here. If I put the peices flush, then I wont have to add that into the inside total volume?

    sorry kinda hard to explain

    Re: Sundown Audio Nightshade 18'' -- AQ2200 >> Truck Build

    Just have to put on side peices and take the grinder to some joints and edges to smooth it out. Maybe ill spray paint it Think I should've gone with thicker threaded rod.








    idk if you noticed but one peice is a little off there...
