Well, its been a while since i have made a thread, most likely because I suck at taking pictures as you will discover. I had to build 3 boxes today, so pictures were not really my priority.

First one is for a 15" BL with 2 4 in aeros out of birch.

I have a router but i forgot to cut the hole before glueing the side and with the recessed side the jasper jig would have been difficult, so i free handed them with a jig saw so they are not perfect.


There is also a window brace inside the box, no pictures of that. Here it is finished and carpeted.



Next is for a newer mustang, wanted to keep as much trunk space as possible so this wedges in the back of the trunk. Its for 2 p1's 1.88 cubes tuned to 30 hz
Dont have the aero ports in yet so im stuck here.



Next is a box for a 13w7, 3.88 cubes tuned to 22 hz :crazy: with a kerfed port everyone loves so much. The overhang is intentional this is going to a fully built trunk of a cobalt im doing and has a beauty plate that will cover it, but it still has a point.
Its going to be black suede with a gloss white port.

Port just primed, need to sand some spots, as well as sand off some extra glue.

The 4 screws you see are for the double baffle behind the kerf.

Will do its getting a complete overhaul.

Everything deadened extensively, I molded the tweets in the A pillars firing at eachother, mids in a sealed pod in the door, run active by a 9886 to some rainbow Ipauls which are flushed in the floor infront of the w7.

Most of the interior will be refinished in black suede (not my choice)

How do you make your cuts for kerfing? I've always wanted to try the technique but I don't have the patience to make 30+ cuts with a free hand circular saw. Is there a quick way to do it?

x2 on that question.

I've seen woodworking shows where they use really thin wood and layer it in a curve shape, mounted to a curved cut of wood underneath each side, and glue/press the several layers together...never tried it tho.

BTW those Aeroports rock, I have one of the 6" dia ports...only problem is the inner flange is the same outside diameter as the outer flange so it has to be assembled inside the box.

Yes, the fast way is to use a table saw.

2nd choice would be a purpose built jig for a worm drive, but that in and of itself would take a long time as well...
