    air leaking out of box!!!

    hi i recently made a new box for my 2 12" american bass xfl's and air is leaking out one side of the box where mdf meets mdf and it makes a unpleasant noise (mdf slapping against mdf).
    Anyone have a solution to fix this?

    Properly assemble and glue the enclosure together.

    Use tightbond for glue.

    Use silicone to seal up all the seams

    lemme git this right...you bought $450 worth of subs and built your own box...and you ask this question?...what material did you use? is it ported?...what amp do you use, if u do not mind my asking?
