I built a couple of these with 6 clamps...8 would be better but if you don't try to do all at once you can get by with as few as 4. Tightbond II all around and used it to seal the inside seams (even though it wasn't necessary). Used just a bit of filler for the baffles as they can be slightly big for the box by a MM or 2. Filler and sanding is much easier than trying to just sand down the seams if you looking to hide all the seams. Really nice fitting boxes and dead solid.

Brad Nailers - How much air pressure are you using and what length of 18ga nails??? Someone loaned me a brad nailer and supply of various ammo. Rather not experiment on the boxes. Do you absolutely have to use a certain length? The store was out of 1 and a half inch. I've used sanders and sprayers with air so I have a valve and gauge close to the end of my hose.
Thanks

Use some scraps for experiment. Typically 80-90 psi works for me but my nailer also has depth adjustment.

You want at least 1/4 inch of nail into the material just to hold while the glue dries.

Thank you sir!
Tank pressure is 100 so it won't be a problem with a low volume tool like a nailer.
Depth adjustment - Haha, I didn't get any instructions verbal or otherwise with the tool. It's a Craftsman. I'll look it up 1st. No MDF scraps unless they came with the flatpacks smile.gif I just didn't want to sink the heads too far but can always tap it in flush the old fashion way.
Thanks again!

Erich...if you see this, I had reserved two flat packs, ordered one because I could only find on D2 SI 18" sub. Now I see they've posted on facebook that they're going to offer the sub again, available in 3 months or so. If my second is available still I'd like to order...please advise. Thanks.

Go for it. I'm going to count up what's left over in a day or so and then let anyone else order them.

Hey Erich, have you had a chance to see how many you have left over? I'm still needing one.

Well I guess there's 5 left over because I don't think anyone asked me to hold them any longer than now. So they are up for grabs at this point.
