the circle was a rough cut, we sanded it down some.

the wood working itself looks pretty good.

but how much port area does that have?
you should try to get 12-15sq inches of port area per cubic foot are air space...or you will prolly get port noise.


for a first box...that pretty good though.

I m not sure, but it seems that the caulking is just sitting in the corners.

Here is a tip;

Use your finger and spread it smooth and work it in the corners. Just run your finger at an even speed so it will seal 100%.

If you use spit on your finger before you work the caulking it will not stick to your finger. You gotta spit on your fingers quite often otherwise it may stick.

yeah man looks nice you should have seen my first box. Actually my first box I ever built was more of a 4th order bandpass lol! I took the big can of powdered iced tea mix when it was empty, took the top off, cut out a 1/4in plywood circle and screwed it into the top. Then I mounted a 4in speaker in it. I next took a 2 liter bottle of soda(empty) and cut the bottom out and duct taped it onto the top over the speaker and hooked it up to my home stereo. I was 13! lol I walked around my room holding it like a rocket propelled grenade launcher. My older brother got so mad at me (it was 9:00am on a sat and he was hung over lol) because the bass from this 4in speaker woke him up down the hall he came in and crushed it! gellous ba$tard!lol well anyways nice box.

ive never attempted a costom box but when i do i'll be sure to take pics and post them here. I need to build a costom box for a 92 camaro. they sell them from around $90 to $120. Would it be more worth it to just buy the costom fit box online then buy the materials and waste my time to fu.ck it up like i probaly would and have to by more materials and buy this time the money i spent on materials i could of probaly just bought the one online already carpeted. Yea i think i'll just buy one.

yo six since u and i both have t-top camaros with hatchbacks how loud does your sytem get when you have the t-tops off. Can people here you coming from a mile away? I don't have a system in mine yet but i was going to try and get two eclipse ti's with a single kicker 1200 amp in a sealed box. I'm still in the process of redoing the whole car, engine,interior,paint job, tires n rims, body panels, and the front ground effects are cracked and broke. It's a fu.ckin damn big project. Just takes time and money. I have more time then money unf.uckinfortunetly. Get back to me and tell me how that system sounds.

it sounds pretty good and they are hittin pretty hard so far...but the problem i have now is that when I listen to music then turn the volume down, even on zero, there is a rumblin noise coming from my subs and when i change songs there is a bump from the subs. anyone have a clue to whats goin on? i think it might be the RCA cables from the headunit.

check yor gain level.

make sure it is set right.

is your amp the right amp for your subs?

is your amp powered by its own designated power circuit or is the power wire sharing power with other surces?

are your rca cables near any power wires?

is your amp a decent amp or is it a low end budget amp?

i think my gain is set a little high right now but im gonna have one of my buddies that knows a lil more than me come help me with that.

my amp pushes about 300watts to each sub..Power acoustik 1600 gothic series, low budget amp...and it is connected straight to my battery.

and my RCA cables do get really close to my ground and power wire.
