Default Dayton Ultimax 15 DIY build.

Here I'm going to start a custom thread for my dayton audio ultimax 15" subwoofer. I have already used Google sketchup and designed all the plans and cuts for the MDF boards. It's designed to be about 3.9 cubic ft sealed which is exactly what dayton parts express have stated is optimal for this specific driver. I will post some pictures of what I have done already to get this project started.

Looks pretty good, although I might consider another layer on the front, it looks like the area where the screws bite that inner cutout is kinda close...could just be the angle of the picture though.

Its just the angle I put the driver on it and it matches up just fine.

+1 , though for such a 'beefy'/high power handling driver that flange does look a bit on the delicate side. Sure wouldn't want it to bust loose under high excursion.

By 'optimum', I hope this is for a vehicle because it's way too small for HIFI/HT.
