    Those ports have a REALLY high risk of being noisy. Don't be surprised if you get some whistle.

    Otherwise it looks great.

      I've checked everything with WinISD. The RMS air velocity should peak right under 109 ft/s at an input signal of 500W. That's under 10% of the speed of sound (1,116.4 ft/s), so I think I'll be fine.

      I'll let you guys know how close to reality that theory is.

        Well, last time I blew across the top of a coke bottle it made a noise and I'm WAY under 10% of the speed of sound.

          LoL.
          I see what you're saying.

          I've tested the box with the sub in (an Audiobahn AW1206T) at home and it worked wonders! It rattled the **** out of the garage! The air was felt 3' away from the ports.
          I'll bet I didn't even feed 100W of juice to it during the test.

          Anyway, the pics are to follow later tonight. -- Uploaded.
          Then it'll be paired with the correct amp and tested inside the trunk of a small Japanese car. Hmm...
          That should be fun!

              WinISD

              Did you use WinISD to build the shape of your enclosure. and what did you use to mak up the 3D drawings? looks good!

                Sketchup??
                Failure is not an option....



                It's installed by default on every version of Windows.

                  As BarryWoods said, all of the 3D drawings were made in Google SketchUp! (it's free, click here to download). After drawing the rough sketch I checked the dimensions, parameters, and properties in WinISD. Then I confirmed with SketchUp to see that it's actually buildable.

                          Post here if what you model is Car-PC/Car-Audio related.

                          Some things will never change.
                          It looks a bit more like a urinal in my opinion.

                          It's going into my cousin's '04 Corolla... Yeah imagine that.


                          The box is 100% finished. I'll post the pics in several hours.

                              I'm Done!

                              Final Thoughts:
                              Now, I know that some of you would say that the components used weren't the-top-of-the-line. I'm not going to make excuses.
                              All I say is this: I've made the best out of the given situation and budget.
                              Most important of all: the customer is very satisfied with the results.

                              Up next: Wiring a 2 or 4 channel amp to the stock speakers and mounting it on top of the box's shelf.
