    Box build log!

    Box is 3.1 cubes before port and sub displacement.
    it will be tuned to 32hz, and is for 1 12" Alpine type R.
    This was made from all left over wood, so some cuts are more off than they should be b/c both sides of the wood are cut, not just one.
    Heres the pics...
    The wood

    clamp box is empty


    I got owned by saw dust, b/c I only one side of the saw horses was open...

    I found the clamps!



    cuts are off

    charging the drill... died when the screw on the top piece was just about in...

    in the mean time I need to get my port figured out, and find some wood to make it with!

    Re: Box build log!

    Seems like it is going to be hard to add the port now... or is the top piece just sitting there?

    Re: Box build log!

    The screw on top is way too close to the end. See how bad it split the right side piece?

    I know............. I always do that too....


    Anyway, I feel really lucky... I just found about 6 pieces of MDF that are exactly the right width, and are long enough to use as well.

    Re: Box build log!

    Well, the entire thing is done... I filled in that gap with MDF saw dust mixed with glue.

    I am completely done carpeting.. BUT, I ran out of glue on the last side..

    Anything else hold carpet down well besides spray glue?

    Well, I don't want to post the current pics up, b/c the whole front is stapled on temporarily... I guess I can tough.

    I really screwed up.. This was my first time carpeting, and well I made the seems on the font and back...

    It was a pretty small bit, but then again, the screws are quite thin as well, they are also long though, 2"1/4... probably would have been better to use 2"...
