    Worklog for 12" sub -- SPL style -- **PICS**

    I'm making a 40 Hz tuned box for my TC-1000 just to mess around with and see what a SPL box sounds like.

    Maybe I won't post pics like the Apline guy

    Some of the tools laid out. Check out that beasty angle clamp. I highly recommend them. I got it from Lowes for around $25 IIRC. The carpenter's square is also very useful.

    I use the plastic bag there so that no glue gets on the bottom piece of wood.




    It's 3.2 cu ft tuned to 40 Hz with 37.5 inches of port area. It should match my car's peak perfectly.

    Nope. If all goes well there won't be any at all.

    I think I might try to put a high gloss paint job on it.

    A box can be good looking no matter what it's for.

    Sorry for the lack of updates guys. My computer is down and I need to reinstall Windows.

    It's almost done though. I rounded all of the corners and just need to cut the hole for the sub and paint at least one side. This whole box is just to practice technique so I'm not going to paint the whole thing.

    I'll try to get some pics up later.

    BTW the total screw count = 0.

    nice...



    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. When
    someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown,
    BUT it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm
    and b!tch-slap that motherf@%ker upside the head.

    Bigger drill bit is needed probably and countersinking.

    Any hardware store will have them. IIRC they are around $15-30 for the cheap ones depending on the length.

    Nothing except glue and clamps.

    Here is my progress so far. You can see the router accident on the port. That is filled with wood filler.


    Where do I go for high quality primer/paint/clear, and also high grit wet sanding stuff?
