That box is getting installed the week of August 17th (install by Bing aka 16psibrick) so you'll have some waiting to do (myself included ) It's going to house two TC Sounds OEM 10's. My entire system is getting an overhaul as well, new amps, speakers, and processor. The only thing staying is the head unit and nav (updating maps on this as well). I try not to think about it too much as I start to get antsy. I'm just dying to hear SEAS Lotus Reference separates in my car along with those two 10's and 2000W of power. I think I may need to get an alternator as well, but we'll see.

The box is a bit smaller than the recommended enclosure for your subs but I think if you put 2lbs of polyfill (1 lb per cubic foot) in the box you should be just fine.

Nice job on the box from beginning to end! That's actually a really nice box for a pair of 12's. Good target volume too (1 ft^3) even though that's small for a 12 there are some new drivers coming out that are optimized for just that - small sealed enclosures.

Could you PM the price shipped to 94587 for a box with:
- single 12" ~1.3ft^3 (the right, passenger side would be cut off)
- the top would be covered like how you have the 2 10's so that you wouldn't be able to see the sub thru the glass.
- remove 2" or so from the height or whatever amount you can

For the 12" version we can't shorten the box or make the top like the 2-10" version..sorry

We would reduce the airspace internally using a baffle to bring it down to 1.3ft^3.


The 1 or 2-12" version is $200.00 shipped. (48 states)

Thanks Mike

200 shipped is a great deal for a hand made box like that, a few pics with speakers in (if not already posted) and i might jump on board.

I am gonna be on the look out for them to hit the market

Box placement in this area


Cutting area at my shop...it was clean 2 days ago


Bottom plate...I always start with the bottom plate and work my way up


Angle finder


Bottom plate cut










































This was a tough design. I've been thinking of how to do this box for a long time. I'm pretty happy with it....8.5" mounting depth & 2.00ft^3

Have a great night!

Mike
Are you still making these and where can I find one?

I went and looked but that's not the look that I'm looking for. I liked the look on the op but I can't find it. But I also like this one
