what are best materials for box without breaking the bank


Recommended Posts

Planning on building a new box before the end of the year, but i'm not sure with what material i should use.

ill be building roughly a 100 litre ported box. and want to get the most out of the sub.

last box sort of failed as the wood was under too much pressure because it was a very small sealed box.

wish to avoid this problem second time round.

Any advice you can give me will be much appreciated.

Thanks

:D

i used to think a band pass was something you were around your neck or something.

no silicone. make the cuts right and glue is all it takes to seal the enclosure.

Silicones what, 3 bucks? Why not just do it anyway. Why don't we just start saying "dont fiberglass that wall for 4 18's. Braces, glue and screws will hold it just fine". Sure it will, but why not just take the extra step and make it that much better.
