    How much would the wood for this be?

    32 by 22 by 16.5 inch box double walled all the way around. with a 31 hertz slot port. 45 degree corner???

    Just trying to get a rough estimate of how much this will cost to build.


    Thanks.

    Titebond II is good glue and its not too expensive. And just glue the panels together, no caulk. Use caulk in the seems inside the enclosure.

    You will really be cutting it close with 1 4x8 sheet of whatever you plan to use. IMO I would budget for 2 sheets of wood.

    Re: How much would the wood for this be?

    yeah. I'm getting it from a local company so they are going to give me a good price. they build sound rooms and stuff. i might have some extra from my last box that i could use for one side.

    Re: How much would the wood for this be?

    Why double walled? Is this going to be for massive power or something? If not, there is no reason for double walling, just do proper bracing and you would be good to go. Would save funds as well.

    this too. A few wooden dowels or threaded rod would do fine I'm sure.

    Re: How much would the wood for this be?

    double walling because it should give me more cubic feet in in the space that i have to work with. and its a 15. i have it in a smaller box right now with 2 9 inch 2x4 braces and the box was still just "pinging" like crazy. so yeah. and the comment above could or could not be right. but it sounds like it makes sense?? lol and i already sent the request for a design to RAM. and I'm not really sure how to do the dowels.

    If you double wall an enclosure you will lose volume if you are limited with space. Best option is to do a single layer 3/4" enclosure with good bracing. The OA15 is a great sub, but it is not going to rip apart a single layered enclosure that is built properly.
