    Built my first box today and it's ported

    This is my first box build ever, so why not dive in and do a slot port. I rabbited all the joints/corners for a nice air tight fit. I also eased all the port wall edges to hopefully eliminate the chance for port noise. Let me know what you guys think. Hopefully I can get it carpeted today. As soon as it's carpeted and installed I'll take more pics.

    Specs:
    2003 2dr Blazer
    JL 12w7
    JL 1000/1
    2.5 cuft
    30 hz
    Port width 3.25
    Port area 48.75
    Port length 52.5
    31x19x19
    Titebond II

    Looks very good. I would have used your router to round over the port walls....

    Thanks for all the good words. I think my brother might be making a new box for his 10w7. If he does than I'll make sure he takes pics of it as well.

    thats not a box, its art.

    no-one rabbits joints like that,

    flush cuts screws and glue only ever.

    one of the best builds ive ever seen.

    1st box maybe,

    not your first time with carpentry tho right ?

    nice box, you wouldnt happen to build cabinets would you? Thats a rather odd take on how to assemble the box. Just not conventional. Looks nice for sure

    Definitely not the first time with carpentry. We build custom cabinets and furniture among other things. This was the easiest thing I've done in a while.
