    Icon32 How to check if sealed fully?

    I am pretty much finished putting my box together, just have to carpet it and its all done. But before I carpet it, I want to be sure that it is sealed completely.........

    Is there any way I can test this? I used screws, glue and caulk on all the joins of the box.

    Thanks

    take a fan and hold along all edges while running your hand along the inside...if you feel air then its not seaed....if you caulked well its prob sealed though

    Put some water in there, and swish it around. Look for the wet spots.














    J/K The fan idea works good as well as hooking up the subs (for fitment), and feel for leaks then to.
