The respirator is an MSA that fits over the mouth and nose. The canisters have the numbers GME-P100 on them. I know its a heavey duty type since all this work I had to go thru to get certified on it. My office has an account with Grainger, not sure if theres ones near you but its basically a store that sells anything construction related like safety gear to power tools to hardware. Its a Homedepot with alot more products minus the wood and lighting section. Lol
Yeah, I've got a Grainger somewhat near me. Looks like their website carries a TON of respirators. Maybe I'll take a drive out there and check them out. Thanks!

You might want to give them a call first to see if an account is needed to purchase things from them. I have an account set up under my name for my office, so I just go in and give my name and get whatever I want and my company gets billed. You might be able to just walk in there and pay right there but they might make you open an account. They have a huge free catalog thats good to flip thru. And whats good about them is if you call them with a specific item you need and that warehouse doesnt have it they next day it to where ever you want for free or get it shipped to the warehouse your near. Homedepot might even sell respirators that are good enough for use with toxic fumes. The dust mask type will not do the job though, those are for large particles only. Working in Boston I see a few people daily walking down the streets with simple dust masks on trying to keep from getting the swine flu thing, which unless it has the filter on it will not do anything. Masks are rated for various uses, make sure you research for the correct one.

I'm pretty sure my company has an account with them as well. I'll probably just end up going with the one that US Composites sells, just to keep it easy. Plus it looks like a nice, heavy-duty respirator. Yeah, def no dust mask, lol.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Just placed my order





The rest of my materials should be here this week.

Looking at my schedule, it looks like I won't be able to get started on this until at least the 14th. Probably closer to the week of Christmas though. I'll have that week off.

I'll be sure to take plenty of pics and thoroughly explain each and every step so those that want to try this in the future will have a pretty good guide to go from.

Stay tuned.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Matt, nice list. You should video tape some of the parts when your making it and put it on youtube, i'd watch it. Not the entire build, just the main parts people would have questions about, like me. lol.

Do you want sealed or ported? Here's a good calculator for ported enclosures.

http://www.carstereo.com/help/Articles.cfm?id=31

Here's a good read on Type R's to look thru.

I just typed in Alpine Type R's on google and got loads of info you might want to look at.

Im not sure either a sealed or ported enclosure is "better" between the two. Im not an expert on enclosures so here's a link to JL's info on ported, sealed, and bandpass enclosures. http://mobile.jlaudio.com/support_pages.php?page_id=146

I know sealed enclosures can handle more power before distorting and ported can hit lower. I have a JL 10W6v2 in a sealed enclosure and I luv it, I listen to mostly techno and rock/metal and it hits really hard in my chest. It is not the bass that people can hear from 2 blocks away setting off car alarms. I think with two Type R's whatever size you go with you will be happy with a sealed enclosure if you power them good enough. I have my 500/1 JL amp gain set all the way down so it cant go any further and I think the sub extends a bit too much at max volume I have my speaker amp set to, my bass is set to 0 crossed at 80hz on my head unit too.

Keep in mind, and im quoting here, "It is very easy to screw up a ported box if you just guess at the size and length of the port or the tuning frequency for the box. Not only will a poorly designed box sound bad, but it can easily damage the speaker if it is played hard."
