SoundQubed/Fi Blazer - 4 Fi Team 18’s on 16k (rebuild time!)


Recommended Posts

Well, I had a casualty today. I was bumpin on my way home from work and I heard a rattling. Sounded like my rear hatch rattle, but MUCH louder.

Went to target parking lot so I could look back there while it was playing. Opened the hatch, and it was coming from my box. Sounded as if the sub was bottoming out, but when I leaned on the box to look at the sub closer, it stopped. Realized the seams on my box where the big round over is came apart.

Not sure if ill really be able to fix it properly. So I may have to build a new box :/ Surprised that the box broke. Its double layered all around and resin'd on the inside.

Anyone know any tricks to re secure a busted glue joint on inside of box?

But on the plus side, ordered some new smoked headlights and running lights! the headlights are the last thing on the outside of my truck that looks stock. Im excited to put them on. T

Thinking about plastidipping the chrome part of my front bumper black, and painting the bowtie black as well.

You could try to kreg jig it maybe. Depends entirely on how the piece is situated.

Also for future reference, resin alone won't add worthwhile strength to wood, it's way too brittle. If you're going through the mess of resin add a bunch of chop mat, three or four layers at least. It's hardly any extra work for a big payoff (if you're already laying up straight resin, for a smooth finish or whatever.)

If there is dried glue there it might help to spray a little water first. What kind of glue did you use? Might have to glass the outside of it.

Im not sure what glue was used. This was the first box that I havent made. Got it with a sub I bought and decided to use it.

If I can convince one of my teammates to sell me his hdc4 15, Ill be going with that. Already have a box I can put it in, Then ill try and trade my 18 for a second 15, and build a new box for the 15's
