Latest update: window-style braces added, port moved 2" toward the center of the box.

(It's hard to tell but I actually modeled the 1.5" radius flare on the port, hence the three MDF rings on each end. Thanks to Collo for the tutorial on doing roundovers in Sketchup!)



Almost there... almost there... almost...

Not compared to Scott's. But yeah, I am guessing well over 200 pounds for each box with the driver installed.

That last design looks great, we have a winner!!, I thought #35 was funny too.

Agreed, last design looks the best so far. Ideally you'd be able to give the port opening more clearance still - once it's done and closed up it's very difficult to change things Initially upon seeing post #35, I thought you went ahead and made that.

Geez... you must think I'm a total moron.

I'll see if I can move the port one more inch toward the driver. Starting to get cramped in that area around the center brace and driver. What I'm doing right now is modeling up a rough outline of the driver itself so I can see how it fits.

OK, here is the latest modification to the center bracket with silhouette of a RL-P18 driver to show relative placement/fit. Port tube is now a full 8 inches from rear wall.

Anyone see any problems with this?

Oh boy, now you're really gonna hate me. The vent on the back of the driver should ideally have clearance equal to its diameter as well
