  1. First fiberglass project?

    try a small pod or the face of a speaker box. my first project i got luck on. but i also learned a ton. like don't buy resin from a box store. do it right and find a local boat shop. their resin will have far less wax in it. requiring little to no sanding between layers after curing.
  2. the use of ferrets and small spade connectors solve the wire push out issue. but simply twisting a wire to pack the wire will also go a long way. i have never had a wire push out so far it comes loose over time. i have been doing this for 20 years.
  3. it's funny you remark on this. i noticed your SMD logo looks like the glue had released. figure that was just from heat and beats. the rest i didn't even notice. i think the new caps match your interior scheme much better too.
  4. never go to that shop again. any shop that is going to down talk companies and charge you high prices must clearly be making enough go out of business soon! find a new spot. just search around this site for a bit. be respectful of people and the knowledge will come in time.
  5. i just did an install in an RS. make your life easy and use the PAC AP4-FD21. you can't ditch the factory amp completely but you can bypass it with great clean signal. there are a few guys over on DIYMA that have done some deep research on them.
  6. the entire thing. that counts as one thing right?
  7. Triticum's Improved Port Area Calculator

    let me correct that statement a bit. not so recent builds. looking back they are a bit older. before i learned a few things. this weekend i will throw a few in WINisd and see what they look like and report back. some where built before i had that program.
  8. Triticum's Improved Port Area Calculator

    just plugged in a few specs of recent boxes i have built. couple i was dead nuts on others.....well they are not so much. but still in the window.
  9. winisd beta and 4ths

    i have tried to do 4th's in WINISD. you have to manipulate the curve yourself a bit. i have had one good experience and one bad.
  10. Router (woodworking) recommendations

    i have two routers. my first was and still is a craftsman plunge base. i have had it for about 5 years. no issues. i just got a jessem table lift and bought a porter cable to stay in it. so other than the porter cable being newer and a bit quieter than the craftsman. they are both good pieces.
  11. enclosure help

    i work in the pipe industry. where are you guys buying 2.75 and 3.5" pipe? is that custom to the stereo world?
  12. cheap first system

    sold locally
  13. Odd shaped box

    as long as the subs are in front of the port wall i feel the straight port would be most ideal. the folded design isn't bad just not the best. 45'n the hump in the middle back isn't going to change much.
