    tomorrow. Uhh i mean, I'll start building it tomorrow. Mah phingah has healed enough for me to get on the table saw today. After a few minutes on the tablesaw, there are dust everywhere.

    It's gonna be fun listening to 65L sealed tmpest. I hope it don't bounce around like sunfires hee hee hee. Btw, how are people cutting the braces with? Are you people using a band saw?

    I'll be just clamping and glueing. I can't wait for it to be done. MDF is HEAVY!

    I recently finished my 67L Tempest. I don't mean to sway you in anyway but I think I'm going back to my 122L design with a graphic EQ. I wanted something to have a lot of punch for rock and rap music. It has too much punch for my liking. Do you want my box? [​IMG] Here'a couple pics--
    BTW- I used a jigsaw also.

    There was too much midbass punch with not enough low end (sub 35hz). The repsonse just isn't flat enough for me. I can tell the 40-60hz region is inflated and over-emphasized. I'm going to stay somewhere in the 100-122L region. BUT- its all about personal preference- you may love that design. Its all about what kind of bass YOU want.
