well guys... since my SE's have been on vacation i havent
been neglecting my car audio... ive actually been quite
busy building my first box... not only my first box... but
my first ported box...
its 1.8^3 after displacement and port area and its tuned
to 32hz as to RE's specs for a single SE 12"
i made it out of the usual 3/4 mdf which is very easy to
work with... the only tools i needed were a circular saw,
jig saw and a drill... odds and ends included some silcone
and gorilla glue and lots and lots of screws...
id like to thank those who helped me... but i dont know
if those people would like to be thanked publicly... but
i do thank you...
this just goes to show that building your own box can be
done quite easily and at a much lower cost and higher
quality than buying a pre fab box... i think i spent less than
50$ in supplies...
i know its not carpetted yet... but i will be doing that when
i get some time... right now its in my girlfriends car loaded
with a JBL 125 watt 12" sub... she used to have 2 12"s of
these JBL's sealed... but this single one ported is EVEN LOUDER
than the 2 sealed... its awesome!!!
i am rather proud of my first stab at box building and just
wanted to share and show anyone who may be leary of
taking this project on that it can be done by even the
newest of noobs... AND ITS WORTH IT!!!!
ok... im done... thanks for listening...
