Not bad. . . . . I remember the days where I had 3+ boxes that were being built. What program are you using to build these boxes for the speakers? Hey what are you using to seal the corners? Fiberglass or a Silicone based product? Also I see you screw the whole box together. Is that all you do OR do you also use some type of glue? ENOUGH QUESTIONS YET?!?!

I use a small bead of glue then a shet load of screws and then seal the box using clear silicone..

I use alot of programs not limited to:

Winisd
box builder
winsub

and a few others.. I like to double check everything..

I also follow the golden rule and also use alot of math..

Did I mention I hate math

LOL true true

ibanezcollector. . . . .Liking that MDF dust? That stuff makes a mess!

- If I'm building a box for me I slot the walls/base/top so they fit together like a puzzle. Then glue them together with a glue that actually bonds them together - not "wood glue". With those two things done, screws are not needed - actually it is hard to believe it but it would weaken the joint if they were added. After this has been clamped for 24 hours, I then fiberglass the inside seems to make sure that the box is air tight.
This is all over kill but makes for one hell of a box!
