    project kenny pollock: 2 18" btls walled off

    last thread got flamed and cluttered, so i had it removed and i'm redoing the thread. if you want to flame the build, i am on aol instant messenger all the time, or you could shoot me a pm.

    this wall is 16.94 ft^3 gross, should be around 12.5 ft^3 after port/sub displacement. it's tuned to 30hz right now, but we will probably raise tuning a little once we have access to a termlab. it will hold two fully-loaded 18" btls (dual 1 )

    the "unveiling" of the wall will be saturday, december 30th at the caraudio.com 1st annual florida meet in clearwater. the credit for the build goes to jon @ epicenter designs who did all of the labor.

    When ten people aren't helping with the build, you set the jack on the dance floor and "raise the roof"



    Built the frame for the walls and started throwing them in. Here's a pic of the first side wall that went up.







    Here's the "frame" and how the back walls went together.

    The other side pieces were cut and put in, which allowed us to remove the temporary bracing that was holding the top up.

    Two more layers added to the floor







    This is with the bottom, the lower back wall, the upper back wall and the top all glued and screwed with 3 layers of 3/4" MDF. At this point, four full sheets of MDF have been used.

    This is the outside of the first wall layer all glued up and ready for more MDF.



    2nd layer added and pre-drilled holes to secure it.

    On that 2nd layer, 2x4s were used to help solidify it since they are the biggest of the walls in this box. Then, 1 last layer of MDF was added.

    Here is how thick the sides are:



    And the last layer on the sides and as seen through the window:

    The passenger-side side:


    The port was drawn:


    Better view of the [now finished] driver-side side:


    Here's how it looks from the driver's door:


    Allthread now goes through the back wall of the wall:


    And through a piece of MDF (behind a piece of metal which separates trunk from the cabin):

    Jon grinding down the excess all-thread:


    Port work. Double MDF and a brace added in the center to the baffle.
