Default My First Subwoofer Build

Hey guys. I wanted to show what I had so far. This is my first time building a subwoofer. I'm relatively new to building, but its quickly becoming a new hobby.

So I wanted to build something similar to the marty cube, but a little smaller.
My goal was for it to be a square with a vent on in and a 15" subwoofer.

I ended up basing it more on the marty cube after some research once I assembled the baffle design.

I am using the 15" dayton audio classic subwoofer (It looked to be the best option for me on both price, response, and performance)

Anyways heres some build pictures!

I tried it out for the first time last night.
Dear god it was beautiful. Its been too long since I've had a subwoofer hooked up to my setup

I cranked it, and my sister said she could feel the bass from the 2nd floor (I was in the basement) So as far as being loud I'd say I'm good.
The tone is thick and full. Very warm sounding subwoofer. Not too punchy, but thats ok with me.

Overall, very pleased with how it turned out thus far.

I'll post pictures when I finish the rest

Hi Robogeek123,
I am also planning to build a subwoofer. I have 12" driver and sound expert guys in this community suggested me to go for sealed enclosure.
What is the thickness of MDF you used for your sub. I am planning to use a 3/4".

I used 1/2 inch. I've also seen designs with 3/4". I imagine it would just add a thicker tone being that there is more wood.
