Clay Pot as Sub Enclosure

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can someone comment about using sand clay pot as sub enclosure? For ported design with a strict budget.

Probably crack once you crank the sub, and mounting the driver could be tricky... I suppose you could try an epoxy seal. I'd probably just buy a sheet of 1" MDF and screw and glue together a box.

What's cheaper, a sheet of MDF or a sonotube build?

Can you comment on the SQ on this? I understand that mounting as well as porting is going to be difficult but just wanted to give it a try. I can always go back to MDF if this cracks as pot is very cheap in my area.

All that usually matters for SQ is a stiff enclosure with enough volume and proper port size. From that standpoint pot away.

It won't crack, not from the SPL inside.
Maybe an LMS Ultra might be able to manage to, if feed 4kW, but that's about the only driver that could...

I was thinking more about the vibration, not SPL, but I don't know since I've never built a sub in a clay pot.
