Pardon my ignorance, but why do you remove the screws?

Great work BTW - I'm assuming you're cutting these on a table saw...what kind do you have?

I'm working on the finished product...Work keeps me very busy so I can only work on this in my spare time but I really want to have it done by the 4/18 for the ATL meet. As far as the old system I didn't think anyone would want to pay the shipping charges on the box because it was heavy so I just threw it away!

I use to tell people its all about the install and tweaking settings etc that makes the system. They wouldnt beleive it until I rewired their systems set crossover points and build correctly sized enclosures.

Im sorry if I missed it but what head unit you running etc?
HU is JVC DVD/CD KD-ADV6270 which plays to 6.5 Fahrenheit monitor in my JDM console and has 5volt output. Not to many choices out there for DVD.CD HU without a screen. It has a usb slot on front of radio for thumbdrive, sat radio ready and audio input for mp3 player as well. My boy has a stereo shop and give me a good deal on equipment and his warranty I can't beat. If something goes wrong he just exchanges it for me asap! Yes I believe in being able to tweak a system just because the car environment is so different from the home. I am a big fan of active x-overs versus passive and you are exactly correct: You can make a cheap speaker sound decent in a properly desiged box but even an expensive sub in the incorrect box will sound horrible.

For speaker boxes I use 3/4in mdf so it wont flex and addtl bracking depending on how big the box is if needed. I use 1/2in on amp racks, etc because its easier to work with.

The speaker box is really held together by wood glue once it dries and not actually the screws. The screws are basically there to hold it in place til the glue dries. I still keep the screws in the box when I'm done. I'm only removing the screws on the back of the box since you will be able tot see them because of the plexiglass window that will be on the back.

More Pics!!

Added 1st coat of primer and removed screws which would be visible from back. Instead of buying wood putty its easier to make your own. All you need is your sawdust from cutting the wood and some glue and mix it til its like cookie dough. Push into the holes to fill, add some wood glue on top and let it sit til it dries.







Caulked the edges of box to make sure its sealed.



After sitting over night drying, sanded to get ready for more primer.



Added 2nd coat of primer. mdf soaks up alot of paint so I will be doing 3 coats of primer, 1 coat of white paint and then a final coat of red paint.





Hopefully I can get this done in the next day or so and I am waiting on my plexiglass to come ups as well.

Very nice

Howd you spec out the front area and port size?

Are you planning on using any fill in the sealed rear compartment?
