Xj6 rebuild starts tomorrow

Work in progress? Car partially underway? If you want a spot to dedicate to the work this is where you'll want to go.

BTW, bolting 50 lbs of submoofer into a vertical mount is not fun. I crushed my hand.

yea, I had to do that for my MT (much heavier) because the box had to be bolted down first, like yours...

ALWAYS do that with two people... you can easily slice some skin off your fingers doing this by yourself (those aluminum baskets are too sharp...)

Oh hells yeah, I'm bumpin now. I want to get that second port into the box but I'll have to order a 3" to get the precision port tuned to 35hz. Right now it's 4.8 tuned to 20hz. When it gets tuned to 35 (two ports, one covered) it will be much louder.

Actually, I thought it was going to be louder. It certainly gets lower than the sealed box with the titanic.

I've got a few leaks to seal up. I accidentally left the holes that the old mesh PA speaker grill bolted in to, so it's a little squeaky. But other than that, it sounds damn fine, can't wait to get the other box done and 1200w on it instead of the 560w.

I mentioned that the box is ratty, it was my old Bass Cabinet box. I sold off the Eminence Kilomax that resided inside, and put it in the closet for a while. It's seen several move-ins and move-outs, a bunch of practices, and a few "for fun" gigs. Port's new though.

Too late for a video, but a valiant effort was made on my part. I tried. Very dark.

Then feel really good, because I moved an entire storage room full of heavy furniture to get this box out!

Also, vids up in less than an hour.

EDIT!

Damn, GA rain. Maybe in a little while. I tried, but the bass is so intense the camera mic is overloaded. Got to do it from outside the car :D

I've gotten a red top and ordered fiberglass resin and weave cloth that should be here in a few days. Work was slow today, sent home early. Hopefully last week wasn't a fluke and it'll pick back up again. Next week's paycheck should be big if it does.

Alright, my order should be here on the 22nd. That'll give me plenty to do saturday. I've got to change the oil and mount the battery so it doesn't hit the hood of the car or devise a mounting bracket to replace the one that was lost long before I got the car. Pics on sunday, videos in a bit.

Ugh, it seems like I never have time for anything any more. I had no free time sunday and work six days a week and I'm leaving town this weekend to be with my Grandmother on her 80th birthday. I guess that leaves tonight, today is slow at work. Maybe I'll go home early. I am buying an a1200 tomorrow when my paycheck clears. $350 shipped. Damn good find, thanks to BigMack.
