    Port fastening help

    I"m going to be constructing my box for my apx 15 (i want the box ready before my sub gets here)

    I'm going to be using pvc for my 3 round ports. (ports will be 4" in diameter X 12" long)

    What are my options in securing the port to the actual baffle cut out? Your thoughts and adeas are appreciated...

    I just made sure that the holes in the MDF were very tight, and then I glued them with gorilla glue

    Re: Port fastening help

    this is true, but I dont want to spend almost 70 bucks for 3 areo ports and shipping :-( when i know pvc works just as well. I was told wood glue wont work, so Im trying to get some other ideas from those who've done it ...

    Any more suggestions? anyone?

    do you glue after you've inserted the ports or you glue the wood and port and then slide it in.. (sounds more like *** than box building lmao)

    Great Stuff works; Seal it around the PVC on the inside, then you can kinda 'flushmount' it on the front.

    There's always bondo / fiberglass.

    Humm.... what about fiberglass resin? I was going to resin the inside of the box,
    do y0u think I could use gorilla glue to fasten it to the wood and then use fiberglass resin to seal it?
