    Wood vs. Fiberglass pod?

    Does anyone have an opinion of a kick pod made out of wood? My neighbor was talking to me about it and said it should sound better instead of fiberglass. He thinks i should cut out a bunch of baffles and glue them all together then cut it down to the angle i want the speaker to sit at. Any comments are cool

    that would take alot of time to get to shape right, and to look good. The fiberglass doesnt hinder the sound at all if you do it strong and rigid enough. If it would make you feel more comfortable, you can use the spray in sound deadener to soften the resonant frequencies.

    that's true about the violins, and is half true about speakers, violins use the violin body to make sound, the speaker makes sound even out side an enclosure "depends on the sound frequency played", the way the speaker sounds to your ear can very depending on the type of materials used in the enclosure, some materials reflect sound more then others and some absorb sound more then others,
    now, unless you're going for the ultimate and best in the universe in the SQ competition, use what ever material is the easiest to built the pods out of.
