Aren't you suppose to tune the box above the fs of the sub? you will run out of excursion tuned lower.

the fs is the frequency that the subs cone resonates at. tuning too low can cause the cone to be uncontrolled basically ripping the vc from the cone. tuning slightly above fs will give the cone some air to compress to keep it in control.

x2 i saw that too, if your gonna have that much power going into a sub you can't have a box like that. i know i went overboard for my 10''.

i'd love to have a box that big but i need to have some room in the back of my truck.

He put the scew too close to the end of the piece. Thats why it split. I try to come off the end about 3 inches to keep from splitting it.
