    What you guys use for box building?

    Hello,

    well now I'm making some boxes. And as always I use screws and wood glue.
    But later when I want to rebuild it, I need to to unpick that box, but it's very hard to do this because I used wood glue
    So what you guys use for building boxes? That later you could easily rebuild it.

    What you think about silicone? It would be as good as wood glue or not?
    I'm talking about something like this



    Car Audio System:
    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9815RB
    Front: 2 x Alpine SPR-17LS
    Subwoofer: 2 x Alpine SWR-1222d
    Amplifier: Alpine MRV-F545 for components
    Amplifier: Adassa Audio The Warlord for subs

    silicone is for sealiing things....not for bonding....wood glue+screws would be best...though some people suggest using Gorrilla Glue.

    and why rebuild? If you do it right the first time, theres no rebuilding necessary

    Well the problem is that I don't build it right
    I'm building various SPL boxes, so I always rebuild them, to findout which one is the best

    Re: What you guys use for box building?

    I just use silicon...and the occasional liquid nail for between areas of contact...

    just dont use clear... it is my understanding clear silicon will eat at the sub due to chemicals in it vs white/black/grey...



    -Head Unit: Alpine-9886
    -Front Stage: 1 set of: DDA-W6.5's, DDA-W5.2's, and 3 sets of DD-T28's
    -Amps: 2x DDc4a's and 1x DD-C2b
    -Subs: 4x DD-3515E powered by 2x DD M4 -- giving me over 10kwrms... 154+ @ 24 Hz
    -Alternator: Stock 130a + 2 x 260a @ 15v Ohio Gen
    -Batteries: Batcap 3000 in front & 8400 + 4000 in back

    I just build a whole new box. MDF is relatively cheap. I don't use screws anymore, just wood glue. Gorilla Glue **** for box building because it expands as it cures and can shift, warp or crack box panels in the process.
