    ghetto box build: SWR1241D (pics)

    hey guys,
    just wanted to share my experiment with free wood on the ground and a semi broken sub. im a tight sucker when it comes to spending money on my play-around projects, so i used everything recyclabe i could find.

    so this is my sub i got free from a friend. however the cone was a little beat up and all the VCs were electrical taped onto the push terminals so i did a really quick solder job.




    i sealed all the pieces of wood with some primer sealer and urethane for the heck of it. i didnt have access to a camera at the beginning of the build, but this is when i started plugging the pieces on.




    wieghing it down



    next i added a baffle in the front to flush mount the driver, also rounded the port exit.

    then, i figured i can carpet the thing with the pieces i scooped out of a local dealer's trash can... the box has about 15 different pieces of carpet cut to fill in.


    now to fit the speaker in. the baffle was a little tight because of the overlapping carpet i left, but it got in there.



    oh! i forgot to mention, i used red felt on the sides



    flush shot


    and thats it! took about 2 days. final box is 1.75ft net @ 34hz. hope it turned out okay
