Default Fancy sub box build - need some ideas, plz

So, I have this sub and it's REALLY nice looking! Lol

I love a challenging project, so I want to build a very unusual box with uncommon materials and techniques... Think acrylic, aluminum, fiber glass, carbon fiber, pvc, etc..

I have no idea what I want to do and I'd love some wild ideas!

Also, I have no use for this sub when it's done so I'll either sell it or put it on display... That being said, there are NO restrictions or requirements in the design and build!!

It's one of the most beautiful subs on the market, imho. (@ToNasty, thanks for letting me shamelessly use your pictures)

Food for thought... Maybe I should pop my fiber-glassing cherry?!

I like the acrylic box with the JL, and hate literally everything about the blue fiberglass one, haha. What about something done with an exotic wood veneer? Maybe a combo of "modern" materials and "classic" wood, done tastefully of course.

That is an awesome idea! Hadn't thought of that... Maybe I can find a zebra wood type veneer and put some curves in the box.
Wood, acrylic with some polished aluminum trim?!

Absolutely, this sub has to be seen, acrylic is a must for at least part of the box.

I know, how about an acrylic box with a zebra wood round and flared Port with a high gloss finish. Yeah, Iíd like to see you pull that one off Dave.

I agree with joe, that blue thing is ugly.

I am not against that challenge... ... the "zebra wood round and flared port with a high gloss finish" part makes me shiver in my boots a little! Lol

I agree that the fiberglass box is hideous, it was more just an exampled of fiberglass-ing (which I have never done before).

David,

I think Gijoe is on the money. The acrylic allows one to see the woofer and the other build materials. I think you should include some great looking wood, aluminum/stainless, and Carbon Fiber. Do you want this to play and sound good or simply show off the woofer?

It's mostly for fun, but I will want the sub to play and sound "good", though looks are a priority. The sub is so good looking... I am definitely thinking along the lines of the wood-metal-cf and some acrylic to be able to see the sub.

Of course lots of lighting effects... I usually go for blue LEDs, but on this one I think I'll let the materials and finishes do the talking and just give it a white light with really high K like 5,000+.

I like the acrylic, aluminum, wood veneer theme, a veneered port inside of an acrylic box could be really cool. I'm not really a fan of CF personally, it's a great material, but in my opinion there is nothing "classy" about it, maybe I've seen too many poorly modified cars, but bare CF looks tacky to me.

That basket is so cool looking. I would do something with it inverted, and use some futuristic metal looking contraption that its blasting into.

That is the most likely mix of materials... I am thinking the baffle and another window need to be acrylic, because I don't where to go to bend acrylic that is 1/2-3/4" thick! All of the curves would be in the wood veneer part. The aluminum would serve as trim pieces and design elements.

It's a beautiful sub, all the way around! I thought about inverting it... Hmmm, I'm trying to picture the metal contraption... It sounds cool

If you go this route, you can put the port on the rear wall of the box, like it's coming out of the driver. Paint it red/orange/yellow like flames. The driver kind of resembles a jet turbine. If you're into mythology, Mercury has wings on his feet for fast communication. He's "swift". Also plays into the airplane deal. The grille could be fashioned like airplane blades.

Edit: grille "blades" could be the aluminum design element.

That could be really cool, depending on how you integrate the inlay with the wood grain.

I'm in to see where this goes. And gijoe's post #3 could have come out of my mouth, word for word.

If you are interested in acrylic, check out Bobby Gately. He does some really amazing enclosures using acrylic. I got to see/hold one in person at the SPL comp in Fresno and it was pretty incredible.

No, seriously, I am thinking the port can sorta rise out of the box (see crude drawing) and it could be polished aluminum.

Definitely doing some lighting... I often use color, but on this one I am thinking of bright white LEDs (5,000k+) to shimmer on the subs basket, acrylic and aluminum details... But those thoughts could change anytime!

I just checked his work out! Very nice! I might get in touch with him and ask for some advise...
