    Poor man build log...

    I got only basic tools to work with, 10" circular saw, jigsaw, and a drill. But anyhow, here it is:

    Building two boxes for a RE MX 12": 1.5ft^3 sealed and 2.25ft^3 ported, will test both and see which one i like more.

    Some main cuts made by Home Depot, the rest my circular saw did the job:


    no router, so i'd to drill a few holes and let the jigsaw work it's magic:


    test fitting ported box:


    sealed box almost done, just need the top and bottom:


    painting the inside of the ported box to match my carpet:


    that all works, shall be finishing both boxes tomorrow. Can't wait til sub comes in!

    2nd days work, i got carpet at a local walmart, it's not big enough for the ported box, so i only carpeted the sealed. Need to order carpet online.

    Sand and rounded the corner:


    top predill, prescrew, ready for some glue, can you said got 'screwed'!


    car with fiberglass enclosure in factory sub location:


    with sealed enclosure, it's finish!


    with ported enclosure:


    fewww..after 2 days of hard work, it's almost done! Still need to carpet the ported box, replace 4 awg with 1/0 power cable, do the big three, install new amps, deaden the doors (maybe the trunk if needed)...more to come!

    Yessir. Right now i have a fiberglass enclosure in the factory sub location b/c i wanted to still use the 3rd row seat. But it's too small < 1ft^3, so i am doing it differently this time, screw the 3rd row. Used it twice in the last 3 years! More pics and review once the sub and amps come in next week.
