After deciding what to build I came up with the following parts list from PartsExpress,

4 x F1687 Rubber Cabinet Foot 260-777
1 x Acousta-Stuf Polyfill 1 lb. Bag 260-317
2 x Dayton Audio BPA-38G HD Binding Post 091-1245
1 x Dayton Audio 16 AWG OFC Speaker Wire 50 ft. 100-016
1 x TC Sounds Epic 12" DVC Subwoofer 293-650

Fortunately for me I had enough 1" MDF leftover from another project to make the cabinet. The only tools I used for this project was my table saw with a dado blade, a cordless drill, and a router.

Here's a pic of the beginning.



Regards,
Dan

"downhill"? Did something go awry?

Briefly, I rabbetted the sides of the top and bottom pieces to accept the sides. I also rabbetted the front and back edges of all four sides to accept the front and back baffles. I also cut a 1/4" deep groove in all four sides to accept the braces.

I first used the Jasper jig with a 3/4" bit to cut the 5/16" deep rabbet in which the driver will sit. I then used a 1/4" bit to cut out the final opening.

I was was lucky enough to pick up a new 1124P for a good price so BFD and REW is the next step!

I've kind of glossed over a lot of details here so if anyone has any questions or wants some help with a similar build feel free to ask.

So how does it sound? Did you end up using any damping material?

And are your SLA's Selah kits or other?

Sounds good only partially calibrated. I used the one bag of Acousta-Stuf Polyfill. I suspect that the well braced 1" MDF cabinet is fairly inert.

I've done some very rough measurements with an RS SPL meter and I do have some bad room peaks and valleys in my bass response. That's why I'm itching to take delivery of my BFD and start tinkering with REW.

Looked familiar. He makes some great kits.
