Yea i saw in super's build thread it was mentioned to just let the PL dry as is and use a chisel to take it off. So i didnt smear it smooth on the exterior and it does come off easy with a good chisel. But on the interior of the box i used the PL as caulk and used my finger to smooth it out.

Well, I used a putty knife to flatten out the squeeze out. That left a 2 inch wide smear of PL. Neither one of my scrapers removed the stuff, only the beaded up stuff.

Yeah, no kidding. I've always looked at em', just never bought any. Then I look at different build threads here and on other forums and what do I see? Photos with 10 clamps attached to a box as it's being put together.

Yeah, I've been playing with them since I got em', walking around the house clamping random objects together. I also like that you can reverse the "heads" on the larger clamps and use them as a spreaders.

HAHA you guys are nuts. John you sound just like me when i get a new tool i walk around the house just trying to find stuff to use it on. Well i have my access panel done and and waiting for it to dry that way i can give this sucker a test run for air leaks. I may go ahead and start filling the screw holes since that shouldnt affect my testing for air leaks it actually may help me not find any. Ill post some pics in a few minutes.

I tell you what on the tight fit areas on this box a brad nailer came in handy and was almost a must IMO. Since i dont have a million clamps my only other option was screws. This was before i knew you had an arsenal of clamps. But only on one side of each brace could you get screws into so thats when the brads came into play is on the other side. And on the access panel flanges.

Well thats because 8 9 and 10 need to be 35.5". But yes they were correct i went 100% off the instructions for my measurements. I didnt fiddle around with the precut panel dimensions as that wouldve thrown me off. The only one that was off for me was the final side panel and it was partially my fault (crooked cut )so i cut a new one and it fit perfectly.

Heres a few pics of the box at the stage i am at now:

The front, i take bad pics but the braces i assure are level and straight.



Now the driver access hole with flanges in place.



And lastly a pic to show how clean the PL scraps off with minimal effort and a chisel. This is as long as you do not smear the squeeze smooth.

No i havent even got to the breaking in of the driver or testing yet. I figured i can bring all my equipment to the garage at once test for leaks and then break in the driver while im painting the box. But another reason i havent done the sub yet either is because i broke my meter last time i used it haha. So im going to have to buy/borrow one very soon.

SUPPOSIBLY, I can not confirm nor deny these claims but i have read this is the only sub youll need. Unless you think you need something that can get down into the single digits and destroy your organs. what sub would you be stacking on top of this?

I am wanting to know how one of these compare to this danley DTS-10 "Super Spud" that seems to be catching alot of attention. The only reason is this being 2.5 times less the cost of the DTS-10. Who knows??

Looking really clean

What you going to finish it with?

Now's the time to be breaking in the driver. It will make ALOT less noise with 13 volts freeair in contrast to what it will sound like in the enclosure with the same voltage
