    Holy crap small box...

    Make two 3/4" MDF ring to give your sub some room to breath.

    Decent looking man...... It still wouldn't hurt to build a small ring to get the speaker away from the port. Reason being, when the sub get's up and moving you the sub might flex the wood and cause it to hit the port.

    then again if the box flexes a full 1/4 inch...he needs to think about what hes doing wrong.

    Re: My second box

    I would just put a 1/2" spacer ring under the sub.....OR.....put a 1/2" face panel on the front of the box......once carpeted, noone will be able to tell that you really fu<ked up on your dimensions. LOL!!!!

    My box flexes and there is nothing wrong with it what so ever. It has to flex otherwise it'll break.... 1/4 is a lot but building a ring would be way better than dealing with that nocking sound....

    RU kidding me???? If you don't think your box flexes you either

    A. Don't have a sub that moves
    B. Are in serious denial.
    C. Have an ultra small box and therefore flexing wouldn't be noticeable.

    Re: My second box

    I would get it further away from the port... otherwise you may end up with a humming noise.

    More proof.

    I'm sure my box flexes... but can I tell? no. So doesn't matter to me.

    Re: My second box

    A well constructed box will not flex, and a decently constructed enclosure will not move beyond a slight "vibration" if you will.

    If your box noticeably flexes, guess what, there's something wrong - plain and simple. Would you like to come see my box, you're more than welcome to see it NOT flexing...with a 15" avalanche and viper 1200.1

    The the question at hand though, I would add a ring because as undercover stated you may end up with some noise that's not optimal. It was suggested earlier to add a complete face (ie double baffle), which isn't a bad idea for the cosmetics if you can take the extra weight. It will also help with flexing, but from the looks of it you're not dealing with long enough stretches to have too much trouble in that area.
