Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

I'm making this box right now. Can you give me any angles to work with?

Unfortunately I don't own a protractor (I know, lol), so I couldn't get any angle measurements. The green face is the most difficult piece without using any angles, but if you get the angle cut on the red face, line up a piece of wood against that angle, then draw a line across that wood, then you get your green face angle - I hope that made sense, lol.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Haha the end pieces took a little working on the sander to fit nice and tight. But it's looking good now. Did you use 1 1/4" screws? How many should I be putting in? And what type of caulking do I use? Lol

sorry. It's my first speaker box

I do apologize, as I did want to have construction details (a how-to) up by now, but between school wrapping up and getting ready to move, it's been a bit tough to find time to add to this.

Anyways, I used 1 1/4" drywall screws - if you check out one of the pics above, there's a full frontal shot of the screws on the front face. Stay about 3 inches away from any edges as you do not want to split the wood. There's no need for a lot of screws and it can actually weaken the enclosure, so use them sparingly. Also, pre-drill pilot holes, though I'm sure you already knew this. Keep in mind that the screws are only used to hold the faces in place while the wood clue bonds/cures. I always remove the screws after the glue has had enough time to cure. The wood glue bond is stronger than that of the screws.

As for caulking/sealing... I usually use wood glue along the interior seems of the enclosure. You can use caulk or silicone, but I'd stay away from it. It's been theorized to eat away at a sub woofers soft parts over time.

...and yes, those two side faces were a bitch to get right, lol. Sander FTFMW!


EDIT - this pic

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Sweet!

Ya I knew to keep the screws back a bit and not to over do it with them, I can't wait to have all my cargo space back!!!

I think I might router in a round-over on the top face edge. I think it will blend in nice once I wrap the carpet. What do you think? Too much?

Yeah, I forgot you are inclined in the carpentry department, so you know what you're doing.

Cargo space FTW! What sub woofer(s) do you plan on loading her up with?

I think a 1/4" or 1/2" round-over would be sweet across the top!! I really need to invest in a router (among other decent tools, lol).

If you want to wait to carpet it, I'll have the flush mount panels scanned into a PDF document in the near future. Up to you though. Looking forward to the pics Joel!!!

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Matt, how did you attach the end panels to the box? Glue only?

It took me a sec to remember, lol. But I just used some steel brackets (one 90 degree and one straight) and just used little 1/2" screws to temp mount them to the enclosure and used them as a guide so the "wing" would sit straight. But yes, just glue, and a little pressure from my hand for a few minutes.

Re: WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions

Cool, thanks. My box will be done this week, so I'll be making the panels, and carpeting this weekend if I'm lucky.
