Lightbulb Here is My New Project, Lets see yours.

This is my new project I have to calculate the measurements still so I will update it later. Hey, Do you have any designs done by yourself?
If you do just post it here for everyone to see it you don't mind. No matter if others don't like it, as long as you do.

This is one of my more recent box builds for my car. Dual chambered ported box, I'm running twin amps, so each sub gets its own box in case either amp is slightly off from the other. Ports tuned for 32hz and measure 2" x 12.5" x 28" if I recall correct and each woofer is fed about 600RMS watts.

Yes it's a Jensen Imperial Horn, and yes even with low power and just a set of 10's or 12's it shakes the house pretty good. The only sad news is that it's been in storage for the last 3 years and never gets used

Tom, don't try and get around the auto censor, it means I have to work, and that gets me grumpy...

Thumbs up Great Job !!!

Damn they look great, I like how the car speaker box and a home speaker box look, but I like car speakers more because it take more design a car than a house because a car as limited space compared to a house. So, "Small space, big sound," is my motto.

Big sound about sums it up, those subs are quite capable of shaking me nicely in places only my wife is sopposed to. I usually don't have them turned up that loud, just when showing off for friends and what not, for daily driving they are usually turned down fairly low, enough for a bit of a kick without being stupid.

And to help keep up with the subs I built these pannels, sounds pretty damn good for a car stereo. And before anyone makes fun of the color sceme, the black is a temp thing. I'm looking into getting them upholstered but for test listening and fitment nothing is cheaper then a couple cans of spray paint laying around in the garage

With the shop I see in the background of your picture, you should be able to make yours look uber clean. I wish I had nice equipment to work with, I have very limited tools. Right now I don't even have a table saw!
