    It's refreshing to see a nice SQ build...all the SPL builds are getting a little redundant.

    Thats because SQ builds are usually pricey and labor intesive....as anyone looking at this can clearly see...I consider my build SQ and I went to nowhere near as many depths in installation. Mine only took 2 full days, but it is nice to see someone showing everyone what and how foam/deadner should be used. I'm too cheap to do any foam yet but did spend 8 hours deadening my ride. Very nice work Hope Just what I expected to see from you.

    This one of a handful of builds I have seen where not a single corner was cut. Excellent work! I can't wait to see the finished product.

    thanks guys. not cutting corners takes a lot of time.

    we are glassing in some braces (3/4" MDF columns) then we will add the second half to the bottom, glass the inside, then glass the outside. 6-7 layers inside, and 6-7 layers outside. ...all because we wanted to save 1/2" in thickness so the new floor would line up between the amp and crossovers on the board.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    i got a new Forstner bit set to make better tweeter spheres:


    we may just remake the ones we did. who knows. those wood spheres are cheap. the hardest part was making a perfect cylindrical hole... until now

    and i should give my buddy some more credit.

    beside the HU, he picked up some nice respirators for me, i keep the extra materials, and after several dozen lunches we are over $600 in compensation. his out of pocket cost on this build is starting to hit the $8k mark.

    it sounds amazing. so much midbass from the Milles in those doors - you look for a sub. we are anxious for the sub. then all hell breaks loose!

    maybe I'm missing something... Where can I find wood spheres similar to those you are using? I understand how you get the hole. Where can i get spheres?

    Hey let me ask you why did you have to use sheets of aluminum to seal the doors?

    I'm sure he has a good reason, but you could actually use that 1/8" board that he used for the back of the enclosure. It's like peg board but without the holes. You can make a cardboard template buy piecing together pieces of cardboard with tape to cover the hole. Once the hole is completely covered, you can transfer that shape to the board. I would use the same screws that he did, but with washers behind them if you go this route.

    What I mean is did he totally seal the door so the speakers could have an enclosure? I find it hard to believe it's actually air tight.

    Yes, that is the idea, for it to be air tight. The door is it's enclosure.
