That was my first time too! I absolutely love the box, it's not done yet, but i measured it to be about 1.3ish cubes. I think my RE SX 12" will look good in it. It hasn't hardly made a beat yet :) I will bring that sucker to life!!!!

yes it does! I'm actually gonna get fiberglass tape, and tape the whole inside seam, then finish fiberglassing the inside. As of right now, it's air tight, I put the speaker in and it had a suction to it.

You should make a mold, I mean go and smooth it out and make it look really nice and then make a mold of them and then you can create them really easy and you could sell them. I know i personaly would go and buy one if you were to make them.

I was talking to my dad about making a rubber mold for the box. The only thing I would have to fabricate that was time intensive would be the sub ring, which isn't bad at all. How much do you think I could sell them for? I'm sure if I made a few of them, cost of materials would go down too. Any ideas???
