    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    taking a short break, took a half day at work cuz of no work. i have to cut 2 peices for the port 90 and im done with all the pieces except for a few things.

    still need to cut the 45 braces, i want to round the front port edges on the sides and still have to cut the port hole for the front baffle....its really big and heavy and coming along nice

    had a rain delay again, then a dead battery on the drill but i took a break, ate, watched some tv and went out and hit it hard...calling it a night now at least on the box

    heres some teaser pics

    2nd sheet ready to be chopped


    pre drilled with port and all, adding first side


    the right side gave me some issues from a bad cut, i corrected it thankfully just have to trim and sand a few areas just b/c they will bother me

    major port

    Want to design me a box? lol

    Man, I wish I had the skill for that. I can cut, but I don't really have the math down for actual designing.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    I have a possible dumb question. Why no divider in the port itself??

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    I'd guess because that would alter the volume of the port and cause tuning to go out of whack, but... we'll defer to the expert here.

    I think the box could still be tuned, by a much smarter man than me. I only ask, because I don't know,,,,and it looks like the pressure from both speakers would be battling.


    Like giant masses of air colliding with each other and making thunder!!!

    Much smarter than the both of us... or at least much better with math.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    yea a divider would mess everything from the tuning to internal volume ect...you can use one but would have to sit down and reconfigure all your specs...that one sheet down the center is enough to drop or raise the hertz to a point where it sounds terrible and doesnt pound at all

    its just a preference for me to run one giant port, it wont clash with both speakers battling air against each other...just a preference...


    and yea ill design a box you just have to give me your max HxWxD outer dimensions and the sub specs and we can do that

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    i have a shed to work in but its not big enough to move around with this big thing plus like to keep it dust free

    if i had a garage and say a table saw so i could make my cuts faster and out the range the box would prolly be done in 2 days.

    I still have to cut the 45s for bracing and sand a few areas in the inside, then i can seal up the top and get it in the car, then cut the box out the trunk without cutting any wires or other important stuff


    I need a garage

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    talk about fast when i want, work will not pick up like the last few years it sucks, so i been taking half days to save gas, no reason to go back to work and sit around when i can do that at home.

    i called the boss, he says the sunroof track is in for a mariner im working on.

    since it was raing i went back to work, pulled and the visors, seatbelts, door weatherstrips, pillar moldings, roof console and 2 lights middle and rear, pulled the headliner, unhooked everything and dropped the sunroof track and glass, swapped the shade visor, switch the glass over. reversed process on everything, set the glass in the correct position and went back home.

    1 hour 45 minutes the whole job...i swear i could shave some minutes if i didnt have to run back to the toolbox a few times

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    ok, came home for lunch, pulled the box out and sanded a few areas that were bothering me, routed the port and sub holes in the front baffle, cleaned up and put the box back inside cuz the rain started again.

    its not raining now but wet out, so i have a few spots in the port the round router bit coulnt get in the corners. im going to hand sand that

    still havent cut the braces, but i may do that in a bit and then throw the top of the box on, may even put the braces in later

    edges on the port nice and flush now


    3 big holes ready to put the router through


    fresh routing and a ton of saw dust to clean up
