What did you use to seal the driver, the amplifier and the port?

Very nice work!

Sound proofing against bass? Nothing can prevent the transmission of low bass. Higher bass or midbass can be controlled with bass traps.

the port i used GOOP... the Driver i used the gasekt that was on it and tightened it like a wheel. the Amp had a gasket also so.... Ill have to check for leaks see how it goes.
Thanks for the kind words it isnt ine of the fine pieces of art that i have seen on here but ill take it for now.

Just wanted to ask because I had poor experiences with leaks, they really kill output, but you don't seem to have problems with that hehe!

Hey bostonswoop, how do you like those little KEF Coda 90's?

I used to have a pair just like those. They sounded pretty good, but I got tired of having to tighten that bolt in the back of them all the time. Over a couple weeks time, they would work their way loose and cause that front aluminum baffle to buzz and rattle.

Oh well, just thought I'd ask.

BTW, the sub looks great!

Default loose screws!

Chops im glad you said somthing about my kefs i had never checked that screw in the back DOH! And yes loose on both of them i love the Kefs i didnt notice a rattle before but i guess im not turning em up loud enough. lol
May have to put some loctite on those to keep em snug.

? tho how do most people test for air leaks on new subs? Just listen for em feel around or somthing? Just wondering i was all over it whilst it was working but i didnt notice anything but of course if i didnt notice that loose screw in my kefs who knows what i miss.
Simon5 what did you use to seal up yours? just wondering in case i have to do it also.

Learn somthing new everyday
