Here is another box build but this time for Richard. For 2 12" Atomic Manhattans. Box is 1.8 each side, tuned to 31hz. Will have black carpet, gray sides and white port. Pics are design are kind of cut-off by accident.

nice man, you always do good work.. i just did a build myself, you should look at it.. oh and by the way, what do you use to resize your images? mine makes them so small that you can barely see them. :S

Yea Eric, I saw your box and it looks great man! I use fast stone photo resizer.. you upload the pics on to it and can choose the size you want them to be by going to advanced settings. Very easy to use.

Sweet Looks good Can't wait lol. So sick of this prefab tuned around 50hz and only around 1.33 cubic per sub. Also sick of keeping the volume down as well as the power, not wanting to risk blowing out the subs in this prefab.

You're going to notice a huge difference in low end performance going from that pre-fab to this custom built box. Good choice in upgrading.

I'm hoping for a huge difference in low's, for the simple fact i don't have much of any response other than boomy crap sound. I've got a set # of songs I can actually play with the prefab box that actually sounds remotely well. The Prefab sounds quite horrible musically, however it sounds bad a s s with a 50hz test tone lol.

The box is pretty much done Rich, just have to get the top baffle on (which it got late and couldn't take pictures of) so here are just a couple pictures of the port painted. More pictures tomorrow.

terrific work.
gluing and clamping? I like the screwless look :D

PS, tried working in something like white birch yet instead of MDF? You can do some wicked staining work with that wood It costs more, but man, the things you can do to it with a router!

This one is a favorite of mine:

that's 80+ hours of work you're looking at, right there.

I used screws on the box if you cant see in the pictures. I would definently like doing something like that glass but unless a customer would like to pay an arm and a leg for 60+ hours of work on just the finish I would be perfectly fine with doing that :D

And no, I havent worked with white birch, but have worked with regular birch ply before, not sure if there is a big difference. I charge a little more when customers want birch instead of MDF since it costs around $30 more...

yeah birch is nice.

on that box above, it was a maple veneer that was sanded, clear coated about 10 coats, then coated with a sandable clear and polished out. It's not really difficult, just time consuming.

looks gorgeous.. I'd use some T-nuts on those subs to keep em in there firmly without marring up that nice shiny box.

pre-drill to place the T-nuts.

Had to go Hijack someones pc to post this lol, box looks great man. Can't wait to get it in. Heh now to find a couple of subs that will work well with this tuning, and air space. Was gonna put the 2 atomics in there but 1 of em blew out on me, can't find a replacement, so gonna have to find another set. Any suggestions anyone on something that will work well with this enclosure? SQ oriented. I was thinking perhaps of FI SSD or Fi Q, but dunno how well they will perform in this amount of air space.
Would like to keep the budget around 300-350 per sub. and RMS of sub around 350-500.

You could probably run a pair of Dayton Titanic MK III 12s. If your looking for a clean sub stage they are great for the price.

Is the 1.8 cuft after displacement or before?

Very clean box man.

Think I'm gonna be using a set of Type R's I already have, until I can find something else 1.5 is min required on the birth sheet for them, I know 1.8 is probably a little on the small side for these subs, but hoping they will work well enough. BTW seen a discussion about type r's somewhere on here talking about the RMS of the new '10 model, yeah it's 600w according to the birth sheet that came with the subs, can't find the thread anymore so just stuck it in here. just barely picked them up a few days ago. Got a descent deal on em here in town. I'll toss some pics up of the box after I get it in, should be here early next week.

Got it yesterday, they sound great, unfortunetly my roommate decided he wanted to do me a favor and put it in car while i was still asleep, he scuffed up the carpeting and chipped it and he never got it in the trunk. bah, coulda killed him, I was a couple of inch's off on my measurements, so to get it in properly it involved a sawsall and a welder, had to cut into the trunk to give myself enough clearence to get it in. then weld it back. no camera atm, soon as i find one i'll get some pics up, sounds awesome tho, great low end response. FYI the type r's sound great in 1.8.
And Bassman, i'll still shoot ya that difference on the shipping, just still a little on the broke side. should be next wednesday at latest.

got scuffed up on the top and bottom edges, not really a big deal, can't even see it in the trunk of the car. Yeah I was a bit off on measurements, forgot opening of trunk was a lil smaller in spots, no big deal, have easy and free access to a welder and really was only 2-3 small 3 inch cuts to allow me to bend metal back to make the opening larger, can't hardly even tell where i cut it since it's been welded up and sanded down. Also covered it with liquid weld to make sure no water will be getting in.
One thing is for sure, if anyone plans on jacking my stuff, they will never get them outta there. Which means they will get mad and put a screwdriver thru them lol. Didn't think the Type R's would get that low in 1.8 but they sure as hell do. Little Bit louder than a friend of mines fosgate 15's, but to be nice he's running a lanzar amp lol
