This is my first post so if i did anything wrong just let me know, This is also my first box build to so its not going to be the greatest plus im only 17 lol

I am building a box for two SA-8 v.2s. It's 1.45^ft tune around 30hz (after sub displacement)

Box dimensions are 30"W x 11 1/2"H x 17"D

Port dimensions are 2 1/2"W x 10"H x 46"L

Port is 2 1/2" wide flared to 4 7/16" wide at the front of the box.

Port area 17 sq" per ^ft

i am using 3/4 birch plywood!

now im sure you would like some pics,,,,, so heres some of what it looks like so far but its far from being done.

I got a Sheet from lowes for about $47.00 and it was more than enough for this Enclosure!

Sorry for the bad pictures, they were taken from my ipod.... I sketched out the cutouts 1'' bigger to make sure i had enough and to know the most efficient way to cut the board.

Started Cutting!!!

I got all the main peices cut so i put them together real quick so you can get an idea of what the finished enclosure will look like. all i have left to cut is the 180 degree angles. nothing is screwed, glued or sealed yet....

I sketched the bottom to know where the boards go....

boxxxxxxxxxx004.jpg

Predrilled and countersunk!!!!

boxxxxxxxxxx005.jpg

boxxxxxxxxxx007.jpg

I squared the back of the box to the bottom.

boxxxxxxxxxx008.jpg

Once i squared the back i drilled the hole and glued it and screwed it in with 1 5/8'' Dry wall screws. Then i clamped it with the squares to get a perfect 90 degree angle!

Again im sorry for the low quality Pictures, but there better than nothing at all, RIght?

I did some more drilling and countersinking and screwed and glued the left side of the box on and squared it up,

boxxxxxxxxxx012.jpg

I Predrilled and countersunk and screwed it in and clamped a square to keep it at a perfect 90 degree angle.

Here is a picture from the Rear side view.

I Glued the Double baffle together and clamped it really tight then I centered out the baffle and its Ready to cut! first time so lets see how it looks and its finally starting to look like a Subwoofer Enclosure.
