I decided I was gonna start building a new box for my DC level 5 18. This one will be sub up port back.

5.75 cubes
118" sq. port area
tuned to 37hz



Gotta have an action shot :cool:




Rounded the port (both the corner and end)












I took more pics then I thought I should have but I like everyone else loves em, so thats it for tonight. Getting this far took a little longer then anticipated because of the fact that my buddy and me had to run a bra to his mom who was eating at applebees (i guess hers broke):dielaugh: I will get most of the work done over weekends, weekdays I have been working 9a-10p and I am wore out by then. I will be using a double baffle for the top and glassing (matt and resin) the inside with gravity 45's. Once I get the top on the glass work may be done during the week at nights after I get off work, we shall see.

looks good what are dims by chance?
not 100% on these dims till I look at my paper again, they were played around with a lot to get everything right, but w31 h24 d22 port 4" x 29.5"

nice trailvoy shirt :D, ive always wondered how people cut a straight line without a table saw, thanks for clearing that up for me.
Me too, and it's such a simple idea too.... :duh:
I was watching the how to make a staight line with a jig on you tube a while back and some guy had made a guide similar with 1/4" or smaller, was about to make one, but this came around, life got easy:laugh:

nice start tommy, def gonna have to subscribe to this one!
Updates weekly:cool:

looking good bro, but i have one question.. your not done yet????
I blame it on the bra issue, yeah, thats it:yes:

Not much of an update, tested the router+jig for the perfect circle, but I believe the router bit is really dull, kept catching the wood and messing up the circles, good thing I tested first.

I will be the first to admit I dont trust myself that much to make a good circle with a jig saw and no guide, but my buddy was able to handle that task (his dad does a lotta wood work) Tested the hole and the 18 fits like a glove.

Thats aboot it for tonight, was suprised I was able to do work on it a bit tonight. This weekend I should have the outside of the port rounded and other parts of the box with the second baffle on, add some bracing, and start glassing.

Photobucket was down so I had to use the attatchment
