    **NEW BOX BUILD** Square-O-Port 18" Destroyer

    I sold my Premier 3000SPL's and I am going to go back to a single 18 like I was running before. I had traded my 4HP 18 for a Concept CSP 18 a while back, and never installed the CSP. Well I came to find out that the CSP uses the same motor as RE's Destroyer, so I figured it was worth a shot.

    The CSP had been reconed, and not very well. So I tore it apart and ordered a Destroyer recone from RE (very pleased with the price of only $130 for the kit!) So a new sub means a new box, which means I have something to do

    I had always been intrigued by Meade's square-o-port design in the Civic, (slot port with glassed flares.) So I am going with 7 cubes tuned to 35Hz with 75 square inches of port area, and will be giving the new sub about 2kw







    I might end up flaring both ends, it depends how difficult this turns out to be; but I have confidence on my side

    The build will not take place for at least a week, I am starting a second job and need to wait for a paycheck to come in before I can buy the materials. The glasswork is going to kill my cost, so this box might be pretty permanent (as I normally build a new box every few weeks )

    I plan to sand the port down extremely smooth and finish it in a high glass black, and carpet the rest of the enclosure. Should be pretty nice...

    Questions, comments, and concerns are welcome; that's what the thread is for so bring it onnnnnn.

    Yeah, I'm not the best in Sketch-up, which is why some lines don't line up on the port and ****; and I didn't know if there was a way to slope a plane inward like I needed, but you get the affect..

    Yeah man, I love doing new builds and I love hearing the difference between each enclosure and each set-up; it's great

    Thanks

    bro, i've got two postal priority boxes full of fiberglass tape/gloves/fluid, and i think brushes and acetone? i'll give them to you for some *** ***, or 5 bucks of gas to drive to royal palm, your choice.

    the roll was like 90 bux from uscomposites, and i used about half of it, but it's been in this box and moved to three different houses with me so there you go.

    thanks,
    mike
