I picked up two of these 15" drivers when they were on sale. Driver #2 will be going into a F-20 (some pieces for that box cut already, that's the next build!).
I really just wanted to try my hand at making an enclosure. I sized it to fit behind my screen wall, but it will also tuck in nicely to my living room.
Overall outside dimensions will be 18"W x 35"D x 29"H.
Total volume is 7.86 cu.ft., less the driver which I guessed at .5 cu.ft. (7.36 cu.ft. net)
Two slot ports 2.125H x 7.125W x 32.75D (~18 Hz)
This is what it modeled at (500W):
I build the ports as a completely separate unit. When I put the baffle on I wanted 1.5" at the bottom rather than just a skinny .75" piece of MDF between the port opening and the floor:
I used half-lap joint on the braces, which are biscuited into the walls of the enclosure:
Mounting the ports in the enclosure (I remembered to paint them before I glued them!):
Caulk on there is Green Glue sound dampening stuff:
All glued and clamped:
That's it for today. I cut the back too short (miscalculated by .375" when I forgot to account for a rabbit joint), but I have enough to cut it again. Hopefully I'll get it wrapped up and ready for paint tomorrow.
