hey all.. got a question..
I'd like to make a basic rectangular box to hold 2 10" subs. I've done this out of 3/4" MDF board before and the sound was amazing (calculated the volume and everything)... My question is can I do this using lexan (plexiglass) and get the same or similar sound results? I want it to look cool yet sound good too.
anyone done this?
well, a good way is packing peanuts
Yes, 3/4 plex or lex is way stronger then MDF. Do your self a big favor and drill pilot holes trough the plexi before you run screws threw it. i did a 10,000 dollar system in a honda once and i used 3/4 plex sheet to be the front wall/face of the box, so you could see the subs when you folded the seat down. i also had the subs inverted so you could see them from the trunk too. i was using 2 eclipse titanium 12's they were getting 800w to 1000w a peace. with no problems on the plex
when I did this it was...1996 so i forgot all that...I have to get out the ol math book and calculatorOriginally Posted by Cris
ok now I went to Home Depot and they didn't have ish... where would I find some of that 3/4" plex/lex? and is it pricy? I don't want to pay outrageous $$$ (im a cheapo)..Originally Posted by 14.4vTech
one more question.. what is the best adhesive for glueing 2 pieces together? I want something that holds/seals.
GLUE!?!?! Never GLUE anything, What and why do you want to glue.
the peace i had was about 3'x2' it was about $60.
Look for a plastics or glass place in the phone book call around and some pne will point to the right phone number.
