Hello and welcome to my version of the “How to Build a Custom Subwoofer box Tutorial”. This tutorial aims to teach you not only how to create a subwoofer box but how to add additional styling and design to make it a one of kind masterpiece.

This is a four part tutorial series; a brief description of each part is given below and accompanied with a video and pictures. Enjoy!

Part 1: How to Build the Box
In this first video I cover the basics of a box design, incorporating bracing and 45’s and construction techniques.

Part 2: Customizing the Box
This video covers the design and production of custom template created insert shapes that mount to the front of the box and can be used to accent and tie to other parts of the install. These techniques can be used on other aspects of your install like custom door panels, and more.

Part 3: Molding the metal mesh
Molding metal grill mesh gives a very custom look to our box, you could use this technique to hide a port, or protect the speaker itself.
