    Build log for tomorrow...Have a quick easy question tho

    I'm doing a full system in my 01 Buick Regal GS (supercharged so its no old man buick lol) and I know everything i need EXCEPT what is needed for a box build. I got all the plans for DJ for a 2.5ft box tuned to 40hz for my hdc3 12" and have a complete woodshop worth of wood and tools but no glue or whatever else I need. I can do installs and tune all day but this is my first box build so Im lost. Is there a sticky i missed about this or what? Do i need a certain woodglue or certain type of nails? Appreciate any input and trust me tommorow night there will be a complete build log for the following:

    Alpine 7838
    Infinity Ref 6.5 comps (cheap temps until the focals go in)
    Infinrty 3way 6x9 (^^^^)
    JBL GTO 75.4 (100rms by 4)
    Xtant 1001x (1600+rms at 1ohm)
    Dual 2ohm HDC3 12"
    Kicker 0 Gauge kit
    JL "premium" RCAs
    Dynamat entire trunk

    Plus a couple of beauty shots of my *****

    woodglue : elmers probond or titebond II. you can find titebond II at lowes or HD, and elmers probond at walmart.

    fasteners: use screws. nails dont hold anything good enough IMO. if you have clamps, just put glue on the joints, clamp the pieces together. predrill holes every 4-5" or so using a 1/8" diameter drill bit, and then use Griprite 1 5/8" screws from homedepot that com ein the grey box. you can also try the Deckmate screws of the same size, which i prefer. they come with a bit that works really well and prevents stripping.

    That depends on how you build it...

    Took me a good 10 hour day to finish my first, including time to design it. Didnt do carpet though. I would add atleast 1-2 hrs for that.(Im no good with carpet ) Be glad you have a warm shop because it's cold as **** outside. I just built two boxes on my back patio and still have another one to build. GL with the build and post lots of nice pictures when you finish.

    Measure twice (or thrice), cut once. That always helps me.

    Re: Build log for tomorrow...Have a quick easy question tho

    I always take my time, but I got my box completely done (from pickup of wood at HD at 9am, to carpeted and in the car) in one saturday. I already knew exactly what I was doing for the box plans, and have built a few before, so it was nothing. Drew out all lines on the 4x8 sheet, cut, rounded off all pieces needing it, and was gluing/nailing/claming within an hour or two. I let it sit for like 8 hours, and carefully carpeted it, and got it in the car that night. I ended up letting it sit that night without turning anything on, to let the glue fully dry.
