    CSS SDX15: 4 cubes @ 25

    I just got my CSS SDX15 yesterday, and I decided on a box. Originally I was going to seal it a fiberglass box w/ amp rack, but I hate having to deal with glassing in the cold and I don't have the time to finish within the break.

    The recommended car box is 4 cubes at 25 hz with 2 4" aeros 20" long, walls lined. The port tubes I bought are 17", but I'm not sure if that represents the tube length or overall port length. I will need to add a 90* bend, so hopefully that wind up accounting for the extra length. I would be measuring the line down the center, right?

    I'm going to have it firing at the read of my cherokee, with the ports facing back on the right side. I'm going to add on an amp rack on the back to keep everything clean, with beauty panels on the front and back. I have some leftover black PE carpet, but I may go with vinyl or something that looks more stock. I'll probably use black laminate on the front as well.



    Double boxed:


    Mmm... **** cone.

    Lots of glue:

    I'm so jealous. I was hoping I could afford one of those but I just can't pull it off right now. It should sound very nice in that enclosure.

    Rough trim panel:


    90* elbows for ports:


    Plexi pilots drilled/countersunk:


    I was originally going to use t-nuts for the trim pieces, but I may have to come up with something creative to get the thin middle parts tight. I'll probably just cut off 1/8" from some threaded inserts.
