Im building my first sub enclosure, and its gonna house 2 10" JBL GTIs
Im not concerned with SPL and want it to be as punchy as possible and also to take up the least amount of space possible so im going with a sealed enclosure. I also plan on putting each sub in its own seperate box.
I picked up a sheet of 1" MDF since everyone says use at least 3/4 and one stereo shop said these subs would be best suited to 1"
just for looks, im going to be mounting these subs inverted since the baskets are the bomb imo...and for make them look best in my trunk I want them to be angled up a little bit, so I played around with em and looked at some sketches of a proposed box design and I have settled on putting a 60 degree angle on the rear facing side of the box with the subs mounted inverted on that surface. According to the paperwork that came with them im going with a 3/4 of a cubic foot volume, and I plan on the inside surface of the angled side being 12"x12" which should provide enough space at the bottom of the sub so that when it hits it wont "excurt" into the bottom of the box on the inside and this should also help the box to be a little shorter. I am making calculations for the rest of the pieces of the box and things come out to like 10.39 inches etc.... should I round down when possible to accomodate the extra space created by the cone of the sub in this inverted setup? or maybe being on the small side would make it sound better than a touch on the large side?
so now i have a whole mess of questions
For construction I plan on gluing (any special glue to use?) the sides together and then putting screws in also before the glue dries.... is this correct? are there additoinal measures to take?
I have heard I should caulk the inside edges, what is the best thing to use for this?
The JBL paperwork also says to use "polyfill" or some kind of fabric type thing to line the inside of the box with. Do i want to do this? if so what material should I use?
Are there any problems you see with my plan to have the subs inverted and/or facing forward and/or at that angle?
I hope to get started actually constructing the boxes later this week, any other hot tips or input you have is also appreciated.
