    4th order building

    I got a question for you guys, what should I do when Im putting the top on? Im not going to seal around with silicone or use wood glue incase I ever need access to the subs inside the enclosure. I was thinking about putting some sort of rubber stripping such as peel and seal along the top pieces and then just screw the top down on top of that.

    Any suggestions or other thoughts would be great because Im stumped and Im not sure if it would even workas far as being air tight

    Just use a small gasket like this. Make sure its screwed in very well. Also, just using a little caulk wouldnt hurt anything, just go light on it to make sure its airtight.

    Perfect! Now by screwed in you mean screw the gasket itself down? And how exactly would I run a bead of caulk? I dont think I could use both

    Re: 4th order building

    caulk on inside edge, gasket tape on the outside edge. and just screw where ever.
    it works wonderfully.

    you can use variations of that tape for rattle throughout your vehicle as well.
    plates, doors, etc. cracks and problem areas.

    Re: 4th order building

    This is what I got to work with. The first one is bare and the second pic is with the rubber gasketing material drawn in free hand.




    Would that work?

    Re: 4th order building

    The gasket goes in between the 2 pieces of wood, not on the side. Its an adhesive on one side and just stick it on. The wood is 3/4" thick, and the gasket is 1/2", so it isnt quite as wide as the wood. Just lay the gasket down, then put the other piece of wood on top of it. Then screw the other piece down.

    Depending on your box you might be able to get a bead of caulk on the inside of the box, but if not, just make sure its screwed down onto the gasket really tight.
