    Re: Fiberglass question

    Yea, porting a fiberglass box, while possible is very hard

    You have to have the cubic feet down to the .05 at the most since a port relies on such an exact box size.

    Im working on a sealed box right now, almost done, let me know if i can help...

    Re: Fiberglass question

    make the box, and fiberglass over it!! so it "LOOKS" like a fiberglass enclosure

    you can also use water to measure the volume.

    Re: Fiberglass question

    just make a desired box\port size on paper. then shoot for a larger box than your paper\pencil enclosure.

    backfill it with closed-cell foam blocks until the box volume (after displacements) is equal to your paper\pencil calculations.

    its not too hard

    Re: Fiberglass question

    Of course its not impossible and "that hard" but it is harder then just sealing the thing since you can be off and not make a big difference. But with some time and patience you can do it
