    My first RE product build

    This is for my first ever RE product. The sub is a little SE10. I can't open it til tomorrow morning so getting this done tonight. I have to leave for work in 15minutes though so will be up tonight finishing. Don't have carpet but will carpet next week.

    My first time calculating and designing a ported enclosure. I have already learned to check dimensions a gahtrillbillion times. It will be 1.5cf tuned to ~28Hz with 21sq in of port area.

    There a some little gaps ( seen in first pic) but I have some caulking to do to fix that



    UPDATE: More pics at bottom of this page
    UPDATE #2: Pics on second page

    Actually, I completely free-handed all the cuts with a circular saw. Some of the pieces were like 1/8" off so I just sanded them down. I need a table saw.

    My work let me leave early (worked 2hrs) so after dinner gonna go finish gluing the port. Pics will come tonight.

    Any reason why you didn't use screws?

    Re: My first RE product build

    screws are just used for holding it together while the glue dries. With a properly built enclosure, you can remove them and have the same exact strength. I choose to use brad nails on mine from now on.

    Re: My first RE product build

    Well I planned on putting some screws in once glue is dry. Just for extra strength even though the glue is stronger than the MDF.

    How long do I need to wait for the caulk to dry or whatever before I drop the SE in?

    Re: My first RE product build

    I glue it, brad nail it to hold it til the glue dries, then just for the hell of it I screw it to pull the wood as tight as it can and throw in a few more nails. The box I am making is like concrete, its never gonna fall apart.
