    Icon14 Plexiglas box?

    Would it be possible to build a box from all plexiglass. I know that I would need it to be at least 1/2 to 3/4 in. thick, sealer, and metal brackets for the corners, but would it be feasible? I think that it would look cool to have a clear box so you could see everything.

    Plexi Glass

    hey man,

    plexi glass is better. If you really want to be specific, i can. My dad owns his own Glass company and we made two identical boxes, one of wood and one of Plexi. The bass in the plexi was nearly double. And it looks cooler too!!! lol So i wasn't that specific. Its late cut me some slack.
    Matt.

    what size

    how thick is the plex in that box? This would have to be a truck box, and I will have 3 12's or 4 10's in it.

    3/4" Try this place. Best plexi boxes I have seen. And Bobby is a pretty good guy to deal with. Http:www.gatelyaudio.com .

    How would plexiglass do with a brahma? I heard subs like it and the XXX need extra support for the magnet(like the subzero box). Is this true or would plexi work?

    It all depends on the size, shape, thickness, etc. Shoot Bobby an email. He will quote you a price.

    anybody else got any pics of their plexi box?

    Anybody else out there got pics of some plexiglas boxes? I was thinking of one with mirrors in the back and bottom like the pics above, and adding stainless steel brackets around all the corners for looks, as well as red neon inside. think this is possible for me to build?

    Yeah but it's expensive. There is a post on termpro that is dealing solely with working with plexi. I'll see if I can find it.
