    Icon10 Almost done with my box

    Well im almost done with my box but before I put he carpet on i need a question answered. (I'll post pics of the progress after the question is answered )

    I used wood glue between the boards and then sealed the seams inside the box with silicon caulking. I was wondering do I need to put any silicon on the outside of the box where the boards come together? I used a good amount of it on the inside seams and all my boards fit together perfectly without any space.

    Re: Almost done with my box

    Thats what i was hoping. I had seen some people put some on the outside too but i was assuming it was because they cut the wood a little crooked or something and the fitment was off

    What you can do to check though is after its all done, installed and bumpin, take a feather to all the seems...if you see it moving, caulk it...

    Yep, 0.82^3 ft. sealed

    Most people told me that the driver on the RL-i shouldnt take up more than 0.1 so that should bring my net space down to about .72 which was what i was aiming for...

    that musta took you forever to build that amazing box.

    lol.

    you dont need any silicone on the out side. it just makes a mess.

    cover that thing and have a listen.

    Re: Almost done with my box

    If you have the room, port it. You'll be surprised by the output...1.5ft^ at 32 hz will suit well...
