    First box w/ pics

    4.5 cubic feet tuned to 32 Hz. Subs are 12" Type Rs. The pics were taken before the sides were painted black.

    looks clean.. good job.

    Make sure to spray paint the port hole black to gain +1 db, yellow +3 db, then strawberry red for +5 db.

    Re: First box w/ pics

    Yeah I was kinda disappointed with how well I cut the carpeting, but overall I'm pleased. I cleaned up the edges a little more after the pics, but it's not great by any means. Thanks for the comments guys. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I was weary about paint because I had been told MDF was harder to prep for paint than carpet. I wish I had researched it more.

    Re: First box w/ pics

    MDF is a breeze to setup, just hit with a orbital or belt sander.. I use Rage Gold to fill in gaps and to cover up the edges.. Prime and paint..

    I use Krylon? or whatever from Walmart because they use an l shaped nosle instead of the standard O shape..

    Re: First box w/ pics

    i'd try using a razor blade, like the thumbsized ones, to get a real clean cut, always works great for me. but nice job anyways.

    That's exactly what I did use. I think the mistake was more in the cheap Wal-Mart carpet.
