Damn is that 1" MDF?? Did you ever finish ? Yours looks much cleaner of a start than mine. What did you use to do your "Mold".

It's 1inch mdf. Overkill is good :lol:


This is how it looks now :


It was molded on the panel (the top edge didn't turn out as good as your's though )


Not planning to finish it, because someone gave me another plastic panel for free and I'm going to chop it for more air space. Also switching the sub for a Soundsplinter RL-i 10.

It stretches great and the adhesive didn't soak through so i am happy


where did you find the carpet to wrap it with? i can't seem to find anything!

If you intend to sell them here on the forum, you'll need to PM Keith and get a Forum Vendor account setup.

a single reflex band pass box will sound better. i guess it depends on what is important, space or bass. nice work on the cubby fiber glass though.

Bandpass may hit harder, but it will never sound better than a sealed enclosure.
