    so I guess they got there safe, was worried with how little packaging fit.

    At this point I'd call it "open source". Please just report back if you come up with any improvements.

    Actually haven't really looked over the motors yet, but they seemed intact enough. Fortunately USPS hand sorts really heavy stuff so it's not like they're dropping from a 20 foot high conveyer belt like at UPS or FedEx

    my only concern is having air getting inbetween the kerf there and flapping around the pieces...just make sure its sealed off nice and tight, maybe try some expanding foam too to help make it sturdier

    I was actually thinking about cement in the gaps there. May buy some spray foam just in case, but there's CA glue + liquid nails there and I plan to do more liquid nails around the edges when I finish it up. What with and if I fill it at all will depend on how solid it seems tomorrow when everything is set.

    Still waiting on coils and such. Box is coming along nicely. Got the baffle made (3 layers... I plan to flush mount the subs when I can get a 5/8" rabbet bit) and mounted filled the gaps (silly idea... a big mess and they are really solid anyway).

    Did bondo and sanding and mostly painted inside the port. Tomorrow I'll put in the 2" hardwood bracing and finish off the last side. Some rounding, smoothing, and hopefully have the subs in it by the end of the week.

    Re: Fall Jeep build Shocker Sigs vs. Stetsom

    So im kinda thinking about doing the same thing. What did you use to fill the sono tube gap? I was thinking about sealing the lip of the tube with some bondo then filling the outside and inside cap with some yellow foam. Did you use 6" or 8" tube? I really like this idea. Ill be sure to throw in my sig that it was your awesome idea Im gonna make it for 2 obsidian audio 12s

    That's a 12" sono tube. I'm sure you could use it with any size. I used expanding/spray foam to fill between the pieces of tubes. Probably unnecessary. On the port and baffle side, rabbeting out the width of the tube and sandwiching the tube piece between the two layers of wood is really solid, in the edge pieces if I were to do it again I'd just glue and use a staple gun. When the edges of the tube are fastened to something it has a lot of strength. I think the walls of the box would be much more likely to flex than the corners that I rounded over (even with the bracing).

    I really like the way the sono tube slices round over internal edges and plan to use that method in future.

    Got the box braced and assembled. Time for a couple lobster rolls for lunch (notice how we use New England style rolls *split at top* for a proper lobstah roll)

    More pics later.

    The rest of the softparts and the baskets showed up today. This is the new Shocker coil. Dual 2.8 ohm aluminum and very long. I'd say a good inch and a half more WW than the dual 1.4s. Also got some nice little rings to reinforce the suspension.....can't hurt. Also note these RE terminals actually function with a sig motor (push style don't clear the motor on 12 spoke baskets)

    Re: Fall Jeep build Shocker Sigs vs. Stetsom

    Amps are not on the box, but on a vertical mounted rack. I will angle that at some point.

    I punched a couple holes through one of the surrounds screwing them in.... It's all good since I didn't really like the way that one came out anyway. I'll use it til it breaks and build up another one in the meantime.

    Lots of cosmetic stuff I want to take care of, starting with flush mounting the subs. Nobody around here has a 5/8 rabbeting bit so that will wait. Also I want to round over edges, fill screw holes, sand and finish painting.

    I think this ended up tuning a bit lower than I expected. Response is quite linear from 35 to 70 cycles, my peak seems to be very high now too (probably a function of impedence rise...which is my main concern with these coils). I really wanted to get 4 in there to get down to 1.4 nominal (which I know that amp likes), but I really don't have the space to do it right. I'm sure I'm losing on the meter but it sounds really loud and nice.

    Would sell these subs for 325+ shipping each if anyone is interested.

    So would you be able to maybe put up a parts list of everything you needed? I would be very thankfull
