    My New Box!! *PICS*

    My buddy built this for me, I love the guy I just bought the wood and other materials and he built it for me, he is there when the times are rough lol, his username on here is lifted95blaze.....I am very very happy with the box the dimensions are 20L 42W 20H its for 2 Kicker CVR 15s but I only have one now its a work in progress I had a KX600.1 powering it but I just recently sold it but it slammed pretty hard while have really good sq at the same time which suprised me. Here are a few pics and yes they **** i know i know, no digi cam and he ran out of mdf when it came time to do the port and dividers but not a big deal I suppose cuz no one ever sees that, But leave your input on what ya think, thanks guys!!

    Oh good GOD. I was thinking in my head that if you like the box, the appearance doesn't matter. Then I saw it.

    The horrendous construction that he paid for, let alone using two woods with different damping qualities.

    You see, I'm a firm believer in sound before aesthetics. If you like the way it sounds, then the appearance doesn't really matter. However, if you paid someone to build that for you, you would have been 50x better off having someone on here do it. If he did it for free, well then that's fine.

    I'm sure you couldn't do any better.
    You're right, I don't know how to make a box. You've been here for less than a month, I've been here for two years. Amazing how you know the members on here.

    although, hopefully, if you made a box, you'd atleast keep the port the same width along the whole length.... ahh...



    lol, seems to get twice as wide along the back :p
    Which is why I'm sitting next to 500 dollars in subwoofers and 1.2k in cameras from building enclosures..right?

    Re: My New Box!! *PICS*

    First off, the box is OK...Construction is iffy, and I would definatly not use 2 different types of wood, because as Mr. PV Audio mentioned the different dampening qualities of the wood might lead to some issues down the road. Secondly PV Audio has come along way from the Caulk Loaded (<<<that sounds bad) enclosures he used to make...Now I would venture to say he is one of the more compitent box builders on the forum (Jmac would beg to differ, Lawl) and He has actually designed a box for me. (because I am the HT box n00bx). So it would be benificial to listen to some of his constructive criticism.

    Port appears to be 2 different widths too, not good imo.

    I got about 40 bucks in this box and hasnt it been said countless times on this forum that even a poorly built box is better than any prefab box?
