well, after months of gathering info and getting tools together i was finally able to get the hands dirty.
first, i like to thanks everyone here for helping out an amateur. all the tools i got have been working out great!
i love build threads with lots of pics, it had been very educational for me so i'll try to take as much pics as i can during the build.
i am making 4 sealed MFW-15 subwoofers, 2 for myself and two for a brother. the internal dimension is 17"x17"x18.25" (3.05 cf). after bracing and drivers, i should be right around 3cf (or slightly under). i will have a double baffle, and the material is 3/4" 13 ply baltic (euro) birch.
i was able to get a sheet of 5x5 for $45 out of the door at a local distributor. and so far, the wood looks very nice.
i am sure i am leaving out some other details, so if you have questions/suggestions, let me know.
