    Last coat of enamel to protect the enclosure.

    Tomorrow I will cover the whole thing in "Moomba Yellow" Vinyl (I hope to get to it)

    New amps and head unit go in on Wednesday, hopefully all goes well as we are having what will most likely be the last hurah (sp?) for the year at a Nor Cal lake called Bullard's Bar.



    Again, sorry for the poor quality of the photos, but I have been using my old shop camera.

    Eric.

    Deja Vu. Check out page 2 of the thread.

    http://www.moomba.com/msgboard/showt...e-sub-and-amps

    It should show my sub about 5 or 6 inches off the floor. If you want I can get a better pic of it. I basically bolted the box to the back of the foot rest and put in some removable supports at the front corners of the box, covered with a curtain of removable material

    eric, looks real nice.
    I had the exact same sub in my supra and it rocks. getting ready to install the same sub in the new boat next month. it's probably the best sub I have heard/used...

    one question: the cad drawing at the top lists .91cuft. is that the footprint or the interior volume? jl looks for 1.25 internal for sealed.

    Using a Qtc = 0.8, I got a net box volume of 1.31 cu. ft. and F3 = 40 hz, Gross volume = 1.4 cu. ft.

    That was the cross section AREA calc. The gross volume was closer to 1.4 cu. ft.

    Again, I gotta thank some of the other guys (David from Earmark, MLA, RCA and others) on this forum for helping me out on the design of the sub, sound system and wiring.

    I built the entire unit in 2D cad with shop drawing type sheets (not shown) for the individual pieces, which helped me quite a bit during the fab. Then I had my 16 year old kid draw it up in inventor for practice. So if anyone wants pdfs, CAD or Inventor files, just ask.

    Gee, I'm still working with a pen, yellow legal pad and a calculator. Some old habits die hard.

    I got a set of these Binding Posts, drilled two holes a couple of inches apart and will install them after I cover the enclosure.
