    My TCAB wanna be box

    Got my pieces from JDAudiobox, great guy. The pieces were perfect, but my construction wasn't. A few of the pieces ended up being a little off, but no biggie, I'm happy with the outcome. It's very ugly because of all the dripped glue, but I'm not trying to win any beauty contests here. To me, an enclosure serves one purpose, to perform.

    The box is ~5.2 ft3 @ ~36hz. 4 4" PSP Flares were used. For 2 12" 1242Ds, aka Type Rs.

    The finished product


    Port cutouts

    I dont think you "see" impedance rise until the subs are in an playing at given frequencies...but I could be wrong.

    Re: My TCAB wanna be box

    impedance rise is caused by the coil going through the magnetic field which means unless you have subwoofer of the gods, that's not impedance rise. I am surprised it's right at 1.0 though, a lot of subs are a little off.

    Re: My TCAB wanna be box

    you should carpet it.

    it looks like ***. you might be able to sell the R's with the box for twice what you paid locally and re-build it again lol.

    it will be loud.

    I know it looks like *** :P I don't care. It is loud as **** though. Beat the hell out of my other box.

    Overall I noticed a flatter response. Even though it's tuned so high, the lows to me are great and it feels like someone's smacking my cheeks. It doesn't sound too bad, but that's subjective.

    Old box

    The most sincere flattery is imitation.
    $80 for the pieces. That includes the material itself, the cuts, and shipping.
    $60 for the ports including shipping.

    $20 for materials.

    So final cost, $160. Factor out shipping charges, and the final cost drops to $110.
