Re: Behind the wall rss390-hf ported or 4th order

Back from a trip to the mountains and my parts are in. Its time to finish the box and add the ports etc.

These ports make a 15" woofer look pretty small.


Measuring the parts to fit taking into account the wall studs.

Picked up the 16x25" vent. I have some work to do there to make it look right on the wall, but you can get an idea of how this will look now.



grill on


And some grill cloth will be attached to that so it should hide well.

What mountains did you go to ? It looks like you have things moving along and in a good direction . I also like the lime green level .

Thanks, spent a few days in Keystone snowboarding.


Finally took a cat ride to the highest point and was definitely worth the effort.

The cat took us to 12.3' el. Its noticbly colder and windier (with a lack of trees) at that point.



I was up at 14' el. this summer after hiking mt. Huron, that was a killer view. I have this picture taken of Mt.Huron as my desktop on the computer. Its cool to see I would have been a little dot on the peak of the mountian.

So now that you are back down to earth how is your sub project coming along ? Have you made a plan on keeping sub isolated from wall ?

Well, Im hoping something as simple as some thick adhesive backed foam will do the job. And I can push the box up against the wall with that foam kind of sealing the box to the wall but not transferring vibrations.

Re: Behind the wall rss390-hf ported or 4th order

Managed a few hours of work in on the enclosure this weekend. My dad enjoys wood working so I came back to the shop and saw he had some creative bracing put together. It would do the job so I went with it and continued the build.

Im still using a jigsaw to cut out circles, but Ive been doing it for so long I dont mind.


Driver and ports test fit




Test fit with the second layer of the baffle to give the woofer a recessed look. The enclosure is 3/4", this second layer is 1/2" to match the subs frame. The ports also received a slight recess into the 1/2" which is just one layer off the ply.


Everything glued and nailed in here for bracing.



After those pics I ran a bead of caulking sealant around everything inside.


And thats where I had to stop, the wood puddy on the outside had to dry before sanding and stain. Then I will attach the front 1/2" cover which I may be doing in a satin black (undecided). I dont know if it shows, but i took the router around the front recess as well for the driver to give a smoother look.
