    Well ive made other cheap boxes just to house subs before, never to spec or anything large and they have always been sealed....this was my first box. Its about 2.5 CU and tuned to around 34 HZ. I think it cmae out pretty well. im going to caulk around the whole exterior seales tommorrow to make sure its sealed completely other then the port...

    Looks good. Did you black out the top right corner for some reason?

    I's from Portugal and speak not good English.

    Anyway, looks excellent for the first go around. One question though: are you using screws? If so, how would you screw the second port panel into the first if you put the side of the box in first? Looks 8000x better than the **** that came outta my garage at first

    Not bad at all for first time. However, I recommend picking up some wood filler; it's cheap and will get rid of those gaps.
