    Icon6 Finally Done With FIRST CUSTOM PORTED BOX!! *PICS*

    Hello everyone, name is Dante and i live in San Diego Cali. I drive a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder and been all over car audio. Hitting the age of 16 i got my license and bought my first system. Bought a Phoenix Gold ZX475Ti from a friend and bought a dual 12" subs, called Directed Pros. Back then i did not know much about subs, amps, etc.. so i just bought what looked decent to me.

    Pic of Directed pros in bandpass enclosure:




    Now i am 17 years old heading on to senior year and wanted to upgrade my system. So then i thought about it and thought and wanted to create my own enclosure and buy a great 15 in sub. For a great few days of researching and help ( especially help in this forum..thanks everyone ) i found that i will be buying a Cerwin Vega VMAX-15DVC. With the airspace i have in my trunk, i really wanted to take advantage. So i chose to create a Custom Ported Enclosure.

    Thanks to Moe Lester he designed my ported enclosure...

    So then next day i bought and cut the materials asap!



    That day i was too excited so i went and bought the equipment i needed and worked on it that day. Here are most of the equipment i used for my box....



    With the hot *** weather in san diego i was in my backyard building it... taking my time and efficiency.. i finished a couple of the parts of my box. Starting with the bottom, then the sides, etc.





    These corner clamps are realllllly helpful. No need for a second hand to help me. These are available at a local Sears.

    Re: Finally Done With FIRST CUSTOM PORTED BOX!! *PICS*

    And then the difficult part for me was cutting the dam circle. I was hesitating becuase i did not have no compass. So again with the help of Moe Lester he told me just to create a compass out of cardboard. It was funny at first, but found it was actually really useful. Cutting the circle was horrible... i had trouble at first but got the hang of it and finally i did it. Done.

    DSC03612.jpg[/IMG]




    Now, that is my final results. It took me one week and i am happy of the results i recieved. From looking at the pictures... did u guys think i did alright for my first time building an enclosure? I haven't even made my first sealed enclosure before and i am surprised i built a ported one.

    Btw, Do not worry.. i will be carpeting my box with the salt and pepper carpet and will post that ASAP tomorrow or sunday.



    Thanks everyone for the help.

    Hope you guys enjoyed my first time of building. This hobby can get really addicting.

    Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.

    8 bucks each. I bought 2 of them though. They are pretty useful.
