Woo hoo, finally got everything done...was a little reluctant to post my build log, as it probably isn't very clean or professional looking as some of your guys's builds.
The final product actually works outstanding. It sounds JUST as clean as the sealed box did, but is definitely way louder. Before, with the sealed box in, the rear view mirror and side mirror didn't shake really at all...now they both do, and I can't use my rear view mirror if I want to listen to my system loud. So I think that's a pretty good indication that things are louder.
Onto the pics!
I love this table saw! It's the sex. It does 45 degree angles too! Sexay...also take special note of the kitty litter/dresser drawer table, lol
All boards are cut, except the board for the subs!
A mess is a brewin'
Clamps?! Clamps are for chumps!!!...or those that have 'em
Don't have a compass or any of that crap...trying to do some math to figure it out
Then I saw that the 25lbs weight had the same diameter! Woo hoo!
The weight ended up being an epic fail...the cutout was too big for the subs. I ended up going online and getting a template, which worked out great. Notice how perfect those circles are! haha
Subs are in...front board is on...terminal cup is in!
The port is in! It fits! Ohh yeahh
Box is almost done. Man I love not having clamps!
Box is in, it fits!!
Didn't really know how to make the port perfect...but it works. Could be a little longer, but **** it sounds GREAT! Very happy that everything ended up working out so well!
Oh yeah, even though the port looks a little uneven in this pic...it isn't!
The bandpass has 2ft^3 for the sealed portion and 2.5ft^3 for the ported section. The box is tuned at 50hz!
