    Grounding idea

    if youre do that use stainless steel. OR brass/aluminum something that wont rust.or you can always undercoat the weld. because welds rust easy. but you can alway have a ground block made and bolt it to the unibody. i was just thinking today in my machining class of working on a independant project of taking a block of aluminum and machining it down in the CNC Mill and machining holes for 2 grounds and a bolt hole.

    IAK and Team IAK audio .jpeg files

    Well chop i have those pics and the IAK one i used on the coins isn't the one i need. i need the one thats on the back of the shirt design. do you have that one? if not i can use the IAK mashed symbol. but i'm making a little plaque with LED's to light it up underneath. Using CAD/CAM to do it. gonna be a cool little project.

    HELP on system

    Well i have 2 gcon 15's i used to run kicker ds 6.5 co-axil's they were no where near enough. i have a cerwin vega 400.4 running incriminator audio front end. IA 6.5's comps. They are godly! i love them so smooth and loud. i also have crescendo audio loudbass 6.5's not installed yet. but you really only need 1 set of tweets. your midbass speakers is what a few of you could really be happy with. more than a set of 2 tweets is pointless unless your competing. and you want something that will scream.

    Wood cuting

    Hey guys i know this is a stupid question but when lowes cuts your wood are the cuts pretty straight. And what do they charge per cut? let me know. i've been having a hell of a time getting straight cuts with my saw and a guide clamp... for the most part they are straight but when the box is all assembled there is always a few corners that are off balance...

    Wood cuting

    looks like i have lots of time for practicing seeing is how im only 17 haha
  17. Austin863

    Wood cuting

    yes i use a t-square and one of thoes clamp's which nem has let me borrow. but i still can never get them right maybe what swift said about the tape being a little slack ill try measuring from the 1 in dash instead of the end. But all of these points you all have made are basically what i do haha. wasn't sure if there were something along thoes lines i was doing wrong or something from blade to the edge of the plate on my saw is 1.25 in. thats what i place my straight edge at. draw a line with the square and then place the straight edge basically right on top of that line on the left edge and then i cut. they are pretty straight from what i see but sometimes when i get the box together it does always fit the way id expect. the bottom is always flush but never the top haha. but i guess practice makes perfect. And i guess lowes is the walmart of hardware so getting cuts done there wouldnt be ideal. but thanks for the help guys. One more quick question. How much better would a table saw work for cuts like what i'm making? Basically what im doing is designing and building boxes for friends or people who ask as something to do for side money. ported and sealed... but yes im just trying to get more input and get better at building box's

    Wood cuting

    yeah no doubt the only problems i ever have is the top plat never fits flush haha. so i usually have to sand the hell out of the corners that aren't even. How are thoes evil prototypes treating you they are so BA.

    4 dcon 10s box

    This enclosure is definitely possible. With 2 inches wide slot port 12 in long and 14.5 high. it would be tuned at about 30 hz and it would fall right into 5.00 cubic feet net volume (after displacement)
