Yeah, a couple of times i put glue down and then had to scramble to put stuff in place. I already have a better idea of how I will put its twin together and make the process easier.

The brad nailer is such a big help. I want to round over the edges also. I have never done that before.

Some fun pics with the kids of the second one being built. Dont mind them being filthy, they just got finished playing in the sand box. Also, the fan is blowing on their hair, thats why its crazy..lol..I use 2 fans to try and keep me cool when working on the subs. Yes, I have to vacuum out the sub now from the sand too. Ages 3, 2, and 10 months.

Just have to put the front face on, the top on, and foam in the second one and they are both standing sealed units. Then onto filling in the holes and sanding, rounding over the edges, paint, and the connector!

These are going to be awesome when you're done. In the future I really want to make some huge ported subs like these, don't have the room for them yet.

Well, first time using bondo today and it was an experience. I learned quickly this stuff can harden fast. I wasted a good amount my first time mixing..lol

Just have to sand it down where i filled the holes and seams and then i will be doing the round over today. The front face is on the second one.

Got an email that the parts for the UXL-18 drivers will arrive the start of next week and to be expecting an invoice soon.woot woot

well, sub number 1 has all holes filled and seams smoothed out to the best of my ability. I also was able to round over the edges along the sides, top, ports holes, and driver opening. Don't think I did that bad of a job considering I have never used a router before..lol..Here is a picture of the twins next to each other and a couple of the round over. The one still does not have her top on. You can tell the size a little by looking at the fridge in the back..

I like mixing extra hardener if I need to do a quick repair before I paint or something, because I can sand it within minutes. I just use small amounts of both so nothing gets wasted.

Well my wife and i were talking last night and i said i need a name for these things. So that got us thinking, the out of nowhere she said I have the perfect name for each!

She said how about we name the first sub "my wife", and the second sub "is awesome". For "my wife is awesome". I really had nothing to say at that point but to just keep laughing and to think, thats actually pretty good..lol

Second sub has holes and seams filled, routered, and inside lined.

Tomorrow they should both go to paint.

Well, got the first coat of duratex on each enclosure except for the bottom of both. Figured, both will get two coats and then the bottom will get its coat. They look like a whole different animal once they get some paint on them.

So now one of those dumb questions. Lol..if i am going to be running 2 UXL's off 1 inuke6000 how do I wire the speaker wire to the speakon plug? I know it has the 1-,1+,2-,2+ on there, but I honestly have no idea how to wire that portion up..yes, I know, embarrassing.

Also, I know i saw in in Donny's thread the hole size to drill for the plug, but I can't for the life of me find it or remember it.

You'll only use -1 & +1, wire the negative to -1 and the positive to +1 and away you go


And a 15/16" hole bit is the perfect size.

Alright, question. I have an old house with wood floors. I put the 1 enclosure in its spot to see how it would fit and just admire what has been done so far. 3 coats of duratex have been put on and they look good. But the problem is my floor, its not very level. The sub can rock just slightly back and forth when in that spot. When in a flat spot, there is no rocking. So my question is if I put some type of sub isolation pad would that help?

Anyone? I don't think putting shims under it will work well. The other sub sits flat, its just the one that rocks and is not level due to the floor.

How far is the floor off from being level? When it rocks is it rocking slightly like 1/8" or less or is it more significant like 1/4"?

Putting a sub pad under the enclosure would certainly solve the problem, but they can be costly (relatively for what they are) and since this is a DIY project you wouldn't find one the right size I doubt. I have one under my SVS sub, but it was designed for that sub so it's just the right size.

If you have a very slight rock you could probably get away with something simple like a piece of carpeting from Home Depot cut to the right size. Something with a little give to it, not the thinnest stuff you can find.

I wouldn't trust shims to stay in place over time personally.

I've used these under furniture in the house and they work nicely to keep furniture in place. They've got a little cushion to them. I'd bet they'd work pretty well under a sub as well, and keep it from crawling. You might have to do something to shim it level between the box and the pad, but it might not matter if it rocks a little so long as it doesn't move or vibrate against the floor.
