Federal Express is hauling arse with my new box. Yesterday it was just north of Philadelphia, PA and now it is just north of Gastonia, NC and set to be here tomorrow. Does FedEx deliver on Sundays?

Not unless it is Next Day Air or some emergency from a hospital or something. Cousin works for FedEx in Ohio and she said that to me awhile ago. And she said even then Next Day Air is rare on a Sunday since most of the employee drivers are at home.

According to FedEx they deliver in most areas by ground 7 days a week now.

Just did the calculations for the RF pre-fab enclosure for the 10" P3's and overall externally it comes to 3.57cuft with the dimensions RF gives. The overall external dimensions of the enclosure I bought comes to 3.41cuft. Close enough for me.

RF P3-2X10 = 13.125" x 31.125" x 15.125" / 1728 = 3.575cuft
Mine = 11.75" x 30" x 16.75" / 1728 = 3.416cuft

RF uses 5/8" MDF for their pre-loaded enclosures so they have more space than if they used 3/4". The back of the box is also angled so that depth dimension they give is the bottom depth not the top so you would have to do some calculations as if it were a square box.

That angle then would make it even closer to the size of my box. Like I said, close enough for me. I am pretty sure it's gonna hit darn good. Tracking says it will be here by the end of the day....... I have to leave for work soon lol DAMMIT!!!

You can line all the walls with poly fill as well and see how that works

The enclosure showed up today dressed in BLACK carpet so I am happy about that. It will match my car trunk better this way. The P3 10" fits like a glove. Still waiting for the other sub which is being shipped from Texas... Delayed because they can't handle a dusting of snow over there. Oh and the chambers are absolutely divided and separate... odd but this will allow me to run the new sub by itself until I break it in so, bonus... I guess?

I am going to take the Dayton out of the single 10" enclosure and run the new P3 for a week or two by itself @ 2ohms. "Gently" to break it in.

You would think a twelve foot subwoofer would need more than five cubes. 🤷

In about a week I will pair them up, new and old sub in the prefab. I am guessing they will be tuned highish.

Wires are in and secured for 2ohms per side. The wires do reach outside plenty far enough to hook the subs up.

Tomorrow.... if the rain holds off... the box is going in. I will hook up the laptop to the DSP, flatten the sub and do all that stuff so I can reset the gain on the amp. Then I will hopefully have some restraint as I break in the new sub.

Curious to know the net air space and what it's tuned to
