... and I must admit, is is the best looking box I have done so far. 2 TC2000 12" subs, ported, tuned to 35 hz. I am thinking it should do well...

Also, there is not ONE screw to hold the box together- only Tightbond and an air-nailer just to hold it together until the glue dries.

I don't really know why I posted about it, guess I was just bored..

Wow...I can't remember the last time I used a jigsaw to cut the mounting holes for the subs. Jasper jig is your freind and a good investment too at partsexpress.com Otherwise, looks like it might work out ok.

Actually, I uses A Sawzaw, but whatever...

Again - I don't see what it matters; as long as the sub holes have some eat to grab to there shouldn't be any issue...

I'm enjoying the mag... I have it wired to 4 ohms now... asking a lot more out of it crossed at 100Hz jogging between 24 and 12 slope -but it sounds great that way (I wish I had a little more power to it at 4 ohm). I got the DIYMA r12 coming in the next day or 2, and another OV dual 4 that I can compare if I get bored... You feel up to makin a wickid one? ;)

srry to jaw on your thread, OP

How do you like tightbond? I am thinking of using it for my next box.
i actually used tightbond on my box, i think it worked great, then again I'm the former wood shop student that like to make more than just butt joints, i dadod and rabbited all the joints on my box then applied a fair amount of tightbond and used screws on it since i dont have access to nearly enough clamps as i would deem necessary to hold it together for the glue to dry, also i didnt quite do the best job measuring/cutting, so edge fitment isn't quite the best right now, but the additional glued surface area by using the dado/rabbits more than makes up for it, no leaks at all except for where i drilled a couple small holes for wires

i may start a project thread and include my box build in it as well, it just depends on my mood and how ambitious i feel later on

I also realize that I forgot one important thing, and that was to put something over the port to keep the stuffing in :) That sh1t is blowing all around my trunk now so I guess I am going to have to tear back into the box...

^ Not really, I am taking the stuffing out. I don't really think I need it...

Yeah you definatley had the nails covered. I usually get away with 4" spacing when/if I use the brad nailer...just throwing that out there

Looks good though, I like how you went with that window bracing. How much port area do you have?

Yeah, it just bought it so I went a little crazy with the nails:D Port area is about 45sq. in - not alot I know, but it still sounds good and gets low while retaining the "snap" I wanted...
