Good afternoon everyone. My brother in law and I built my box the other day and it is time to show the progress. The box is currently with my neighbor who owns a custom car shop and is putting a coat of bedliner on it.
I must admit however that I am not too terribly proud of the workmanship but I think it will do for a first attempt. I followed the dimensions provided by Kevin in this http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/exodus-audio/21979-first-tempest-x2-design-easy-slot-port.html
thread. Only a single sheet of 4'X8' MDF was used. My dimensions ended up a little different and yielded 5.7^3 ft and close to 6^ft with 80% polyfill.
We performed this task with the following tools; Skil-saw, jigsaw, hand held beltsander, finishing nail gun. I know most of you use clamps but I was rather impatient and didn't want to wait. Instead, we glued and nailed the pieces together and I predrilled a few holes on each piece and screwed them snug, knowing that any imperfections would be covered by the bedliner coating.
Just getting started.
Cutting the hole for the amp.
All pieces cut now ready for assembly.
Test fit of the :hsd:
Bracing - does it need more holes???
Hardware used to fasten the sub.
I will post the final product when I get it back....
Finished but not yet in its final resting place...
Thanks for checking it out...
