I was thinking of buying a Kreg Jig kit that makes it real easy to join wood together. I figured that I would only need one clamp, glue, a drill and the Kreg Jig kit. Did you also use silicone to seal or any sealant to make sure no leaks??

If you want to make it easier for the same cost buy a small compressor and brad gun from harbor freight tools. I will run a bead of silicone in the joints tomorrow , add some bracing , dampening , and attach the top. Then paint and wait for that uxl18 driver.

Couldn't sleep so I created the instruction booklet tonight. I used sketchup pics to try to make it easier. I am sure their could be edits made but I am not going to make them. This method worked great for me and i hope it helps anyone who builds the cube. In the booklet I mention glueing and using screws. I like the added strength of screws as well as the convenience of speeding up the process. If you want to just use glue then go ahead. I will also put this in post one.






I hope this helps people. Building the full or mini-marty would follow very similar steps. cool.gif

Awesome job, Donny!!!

One minor suggestion for the bracing, the corner braces are already in the strongest area of the enclosure. You would derive much more benefit if you move these adjacent to the speaker cutout hole.

I hope you sell a ton of these and build some 15" SEOS mains with the money earned!!

Excellent instructions!!!

 

a few additions would be nice for the flat packs you are making:

- add dado cuts for all of the port rails (outer back/bottom & port back/bottom)

- add dado cut for large brace on port bottom

- need to glue front double baffle before mounting to box

Question: Is the acoustic foam better / worse than pillows or other polly fill for the cube? On a ported box, do you typically still add stuffing like a sealed?

This is great, Thank you. Just what we needed to understand some of the stuff that isn't seen in the finished product. BTW most people that can't sleep watch a movie or read, they don't put sit down and put out an awesome manual. Looks like you have subwoofer-itus.

In all the building that I have done dado cuts are helpful when glueing together several pieces (6-10) at once. The dadoes prevent the pieces from sliding around. FOr this cube the pieces fit snug and once in place don't move much. You are only putting together two pieces at once so you will have to take my word that its very easy. If someone wants dadoes it makes it more time consuming for me to cut out. It would be faster for me just to assemble it together without glueing the top down. I could do that and round corners for a small fee. smile.gif

I don't think it makes a difference. Polyfill is cheaper.

Can you post a picture of where you put the connectors on the box and how you got the wires there?  Through the port wall?  through the port itself???

Thanks! One other question, does the hole through the port need to be sealed? Wouldn't the hole through the port affect the tuning or not?
