Can't wait to see the final product! How do you like the sound of your selenium mids and highs? Im thinking of getting a pair of selenium 6s and a pair of the st 350s an running them off of a crescendo 4 channel. I have 1 15 in my ranger at 1500 rms.

Your doing a great job so far, I would like to point out that you should consider putting some front to back bracing. the area in the middle of all of the cutouts could be a weak point. just trying to help. your woodworking is improving quite a bit.

Most good routers you buy nowadays come with a circle jig - so you jsut drill a hole, pop it on there - and get a perfect circle.. its honestly all about the bit that you use though - is this a double flute bit your using on the mdf by chance?

Yea its a double flute. As for bracing, i have 6 pieces of 5/8" threaded rod that will run front to back. I used it in my old box so im just going to take it out and put it in this one.

The front baffle is painted. Tomorrow, i will put the front baffle on, put some more resin on the port, paint it black, and start hooking up amps. Hopefully tuesday night or wednesday, it should be making some noise. :) :)
