  1. Thanks. I was hoping to work on the car today, but crappy weather. Maybe tomorrow...
  2. Sorry have not had anytime to work on it. I hate that everything is just sitting there waiting on me. As soon as the weather permits, have to do valve cover gaskets, upper timing chain cover gaskets, and upper and lower control arms on the car. Then I can move back to the box.
  3. Almost no time to work on the box yet. I did get this done today.
  4. Yeah it is a little time consuming. I spent about 45 mins tracing them out and rough cutting them. I figure it is going to take another 45 mins to run them on the router and attach them to each other. I am going to use the method Mark demonstrated. glue and nail each to the bottom of the one just cut as you go. this make since to me.
  5. I got home from work tonight about an hour early. I decided to take advantage of that time. nothing exciting, but here are the parts traced out on the boards. and here they are rough cut with the jigsaw. I needed 12. I will still need one 1/2 inch, but I am out of that size mdf. that’s all for tonight.
  6. Smart corners came in the mail today. I wont get a chance to try them out for a few days. they look nice though. I have everything I need to finish the box except time. Swapped at work so no lunch breaks for now.
  7. Yeah that was basically it. I did have a 90 turn in mine though and the port ran along the back wall of the box. just the end of the port that was open had a matching angle to the front of the box. I know what you mean about not wanting to tune higher. I wish my 12"s were tuned at 28. It is right around 30 or 31 now. I might not notice if it were lower, but I keep thinking I would, so that is enough to make me wish I has done it
  8. I designed a box once, (I didn't build it though just want to put that out there) but I mirrored the port slant from the front of the box to the back of the port. so both the top and bottom of the port were the same length the whole port. if that makes since. I am not sure if you can do that in your situation, but It tested good in a simulation.
  9. I feel ya. I wanted more than 2 12"s originally in my car. I thought about 3-4 12"s or 2 15"s, but I wanted to keep as much trunk space as possible. In the end do to how I need to position the box, It fills the whole trunk up anyway. Oh well. Sounds good at least It would be nice if you can find a way to use all 3 of those.
  10. Sounds like you go a plan. I look forward to seeing this progress. Please take pics
  11. I understand. I bought some cca wire when I was using the 6 channel PPI amp for my subs. I didn’t realize when I bought it was was getting cca. It worked ok but did start to get corrosion on the ends. I swapped it out once I saw that.
  12. Sorry. Didn’t realize you had CCA. I personally don’t like it, but some people do.
  13. Personally I would do a dual run of 0 gauge over a single run of 00. Especially since it sounds like you already have a single run. A dual run of 0 will allow more current flow than a single 00, and be cheaper. Just my .02
