    nice sounding 6.5's for under $200

    Your install will make a big difference too on how they sound in your car. Make sure you sound deaden your doors at least. A poor install will make even the best sounding speakers sound bad.

    hey fellas

    Welcome to the forum.
  9. I agree with bigrank, I would build a new enclosure before buying new subs. A bad enclosure can make really good subs sound bad.
  10. I do need an accurate way to set crossover points though. The slopes are usually set or selectable on the crossover itself.

    This one's for the box builders

    Thanks, I am going to just use glue and nails. I am going to add mitered pieces to the inside corners to make them stronger, more surface area for the glue. I also keep the pieces clamped until the glue has completely dried. I will post pics when the box is finished.

    This one's for the box builders

    Hey guys, I have a question about box construction. I've been building boxes for a while. I always use MDF, but will use Baltic Birch one of these days. I have always heard that glue is stronger than screws as long as it is a nice tight joint and glued properly. I have always used glue and screws for strength but have seen a lot of guys use glue and pin nails. I have only built one box using glue only but it was for a single 8" driver. Any guys have experience doing this method? I don't want to waste extra time pre-drilling and using screws if I don't have to, not looking for short cuts, just trying to save some time. I have a box that I am going to reuse but need to beef it up for my new subs, it will house two Xcon 15's and the subs will be hooked up to a 4500 watt amp. Thanks in advance for any input.
