    I think I fail at building boxes...

    So I decided to try to build my first box ever... It is for my 13w6v2 built to JL specifications....

    I cut everything perfectly to the exact dimensions, put it all together, but for some reason i managed to lose .75" in the port width towards the back of the box..


    The back of the port is 1" in width, while the part leaving the actual box is 1.75"


    WTF is that going to do to my tuning????

    I put it in the RE enclosure calculator and it came out to 1.8 Cu Ft @ 26 hz....

    so how bad did I fail?

    its tough to build a box when you have no experience with wood work or anything like that.

    Re: I think I fail at building boxes...

    I'll get back to you on if I've failed or not, but I'm building my first box as well. The dimensions are perfect, I cracked the mdf in one spot from using too small of a drill bit, but some fiberglass should fix that. The problem is it is about 0.5 inches too tall and if I stick the bottom plate on it will no longer fit in my trunk.

    so your not doing that bad.

    If it was supposed to be 1.75 the whole length then I imagine it's going to sound like port noise amplified by a horn when you turn it up.

    well i guess the best way to learn is through experience... I still think we should have like a walkthrough on building boxes stickied or something, that would be pretty cool.
