    yeah, i'm getting that massaged out. going to use a syringe to get more adhesive in spots. I'm still learning vinyl wrapping. It's a birch plywood box with all baffles cut on 45s and corner braces too. There's an oak stand for the magnet to sit on.

    It's the second vented box I've built. I plan on putting a black 'XXX' logo on the inside of the port.

    Re: RE XXX 12" Box almost done..

    I made a stand that the magnet sits on. i am careful to drop the sub into the top and secure it. then i roll it over to face it out the back. the solid oak block was shaped perfectly to cradle it using a big belt sander. it is glued and screwed to the bottom. I was going to add a 1" dowel shaped like a + before I put it back in. I have been using the box for a couple months now, it sounds great. I just got around to finishing it this winter. I don't want it out in the cold! So decals, touch up some paint, and that cross brace left to do.

    edit: you can see the stand in the first pic, it's just kinda white in there.

    Box build pics. I was trying to make the box strong and yet as light as I can.

    Re: RE XXX 12" Box almost done..

    airspace for the port for one. it can breathe firing to the rear. I am going to get some foam to make blocks on the sides of the box to flow into the rest of the trunk. so side wouldn't work. i have a strut bar in the back that holds the box in place, so sub or port forward wouldn't work. both up wouldn't work either, i have them under my rear deck and the box slides right underneath it.

    It just looks and works best this way I feel.
