    need advice on my new box

    Looking for tips on what else needs done to complete the box in my trunk if anything, its for my 15 zcon, 4.4 cubes tuned to 32, built it in the trunk then have one layer of fiberglass on all corners, just seeing if anyone sees anything wrong or anything to add to make it better,, and you think i should put the sub on the baffle before i put it on the box or what

    i just had alot of resin and mat and stuff from another project im working on and figured it would make it stonger and make the corners more rounded, anything wrong with using it?

    Re: need advice on my new box

    By no means am I an audio expert like some members here. With that being said I once read a thread were a member suggested placing a vacuum cleaner hose on the box and observing the air that is able to be pulled from the inside of the box. They then suggested placing a small coat of resin to the entire inside of the box to prevent any lose. Makes sense I suppose? But again, Im no expert..
