    Sealed Sub Enclosure DIY / working with MDF

    I got a bunch of requests on clubatenza.com for a writeup on how I did my carputter box.. Instead I made a DIY on a sub enclosure, which is pretty much identical process, just different dimensions and a few more steps

    Same idea. If you're building a sealed enclosure all you would have to do is triple the volume required for 1 sub. Thats why I like sealed enclosures, nothing can be easier

    Just multiply the length of your box to be by 3!

    IG nice work, looks great. I'm working on something similar I posted it in the fabrication forum. only good thing to a ported enclosure is specific tuning to a certian Hz. I listen to a big variety of music so i dont want my sub limited to one frequency range

    If you are going to be putting three subs in one box it is recommended that you seperate the box into 3 chambers instead of letting them all share the same air space. Not only will this keep the box braced but it will keep the subs from conflicting with each other.

    Nice write up on building a box.

    I'm assuming you can put the wire terminals anywhere on the box, correct?
