    Not bad. Better than my first box. I got all the way to cutting the sub holes out and cut them too close together.

    Re: Well its my first box and you can tell lol.

    yeah i don't have quite enough wood. and i cut my port hole too big cuz i measure where the port was instead of looking at what i wrote down and the port had moved so i was off by half an inch. but i put another piece in the gap and wood glue / caulked the living crap outta it lol so it pretty muchly part of the board. plus another face is going over that. so all I'm worried about is smoothing out the walls of the port.

    Re: Well its my first box and you can tell lol.

    looks good, my friend an i r also building our first box, everything is going ok, we r gonna have to use a **** ton of caulk or liquid nails for the gaps, but otherwise the only problem is the sub cutouts, he tried using a router, but the hole was too big and misshapen, so we r probably gonna get his dad's friend to do it with the proper tools and it's kind of a specific diameter

    That is actually not all that bad. Cut the whole to match the first one. Then drop the sub in and trace around it, which should give you a nice "snug" fit. Then just pop it all off cut out around your trace line, sand it a bit to smooth it out a little and your done.

    Re: Well its my first box and you can tell lol.

    anybody know what those plastic things are that u can stick on the wall of ur box and run the wire to that then out of the box so u don't have to run the wire through the port or out a crack?

    Oh, and here is a good video on carpeting. if you dont get a contact buzz from watching these guys.
    Carpet a speaker box - YouTube

    Just be creative, and dont be afraid to try something different from what youve saw. If you dont like it, take it off, and try something else. Post up some pics when your done. Much better than my first one for sure
