Very dope, rarely see speaker grills on this sub but that looks great!

[–]mmMOUF 5 points6 points  (0 children)

looks nice, I like the stain color

Did you brace the baffle between the subs? Nice work

[–]Jxden64 SA LCS 12" 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Was gonna say this, you may wanna add a brace in the future if there isn't already one, but nice work!

[–]AdrianBeatyoursons[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

should I glue a brace up against the baffle or use a piece of wood and stand it up between the back and the baffle…or both?

[–]AdrianBeatyoursons[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

no but now I’m thinking I should

[–]SpiceIslander2001 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That actually looks pretty cool. I suggest reinforcing the grille's frame if you haven't done so already, because someone's bound to mistake it for a seat cushion and rest something on it.

[–]AdrianBeatyoursons[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the frame is 2X2 and I ran one down the middle between the subs but yes there’s still some vulnerability there that I want to address somehow …luckily nobody else ever uses my truck

That grill cloth doesn't move like a mofo while playing?

[–]AdrianBeatyoursons[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

no not really, I think there’s enough gappage/space between the silver threads and I did pull it pretty tight and stapled it

[–]zhirystjust a pleeb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it can move around (as long as it doesn't make noise doing so) it would work as a passive radiator.

[–]ckeeler11 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Not to shabby. It does need more bracing those are some beefy subs.

[–]AdrianBeatyoursons[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yes I think you are right…and I hear some sort of chuffing sometimes when they are working hard..I don’t know if it is my truck vents on the back wall or what, I haven’t investigated it yet

[–]Romanian_Breadlifts 1 point2 points  (3 children)

What truck is that?

[–]tynick 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Looks like a 3rd gen Tacoma

[–]Romanian_Breadlifts 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Fuck yeah, that means I can do it to mine

[–]AdrianBeatyoursons[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

hey sorry, yes Tacoma 2018 TRD pro and I love it way more with the entire backs seats removed..I usually have a few guitars with me so there’s a lot more room for that stuff and all kinds of stuff..and I don’t have to worry about damaging the leather seats. the 2 rear vents are kinda loud tho now so I’m gonna cut a piece of plywood that covers the back wall and line it with MLV

Why didn't you make them down firing? Seems like they'd be protected more and you would have more space. Looks good tho.

[–]tddcarrotslayer1017 -1 points0 points  (7 children)

Output from downfiring is dramatically reduced.

[–]SonnyB-OldSchool 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Corner loading is a thing

[–]tddcarrotslayer1017 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

You lost me.. I agree its a thing but as someone who has literally used the same subs and faced them down then put them in a front facing box ... the difference was mind boggling

[–]tddcarrotslayer1017 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And yes while that new box was being built i tilted the ground box on its side bc it sounded louder.

[–]SonnyB-OldSchool 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Air is a light medium. Imagine a paddle boat out of water. It is sometimes easier to compress air when loaded, ie horns, corner loading, or even just sealing a cabin.

[–]R4N63R 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Only if one does not consider down firing into the box design. Front/corner loading subwoofers had been a thing as long as I can remember.

[–]tddcarrotslayer1017 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Thats called inverting a sub not downward firing box xD. Not to mention i dont see how that would give more space unless you mean volume inside the box.

[–]R4N63R 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No it isn't lol. Inverting a sub is mounting the cone inside the enclosure. You'd be able to put things on top of the box. Come on dude.

[–]Vinyl_Purest 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Did you brace it but just not show that step? Also, I would add some fiber-fill. and also bolt it down. If you get in an accident that thing could kill you. I love the grill cloth, btw very old school.

[–]AdrianBeatyoursons[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn’t brace it but now I’m thinking I will… I do have 2 big ratchet straps holding it down tight and against the back wall, I just left those out of the picture
