it looks a bit wonky in this view, i went the wrong way, or too far anyway. it wont matter once its all glued up and forced into place and shape. 

 

thats all im ding for today. i'll gp do some more work tomorrow. i think i shoulld have cut the speaker hole out first but as long as i clamp this down tiight and flat it will be fine. 

i'll add a second baffle when i ge to that point.

 

thanks for looking

I know it serves a function, but I've always loved the look of a kerf port!

me too! ive always wanted to do one. this one came out a little janky but now i know what mistakes i made and have a better plan for the next one!

The next step is to toss it in the trunk and see how it sounds. i have a feeling my tuning is gonna be a bit higher than i wanted  but thats no big deal.

i think i want to seal off the cabin of the car and fire this forward into the cabin from the trunk. The lkast time it tried it i half assed it and it didnt work too well. so maybe i'll get it right this time
