The box is constructed of 5/8" MDF
(medium-density fiberboard). MDF resists flexing
and has anti-resonant qualities. The 0.386" thick Plexiglas window is 16-1/4"
square and is held in place with 16 screws (only 5 screws secure the Plexiglas
when received). Three 4" diameter cardboard port tubes (length=12") are
included, and should be trimmed according to the supplied Port Tuning Chart. The
supplied silver plastic port flanges mount to the top of the woofer box.
Due to the position of the port tubes in the enclosure, the mounting
depth can be limited for a top-mounted woofer with a large magnet. If
the tubes are shortened (according to the tuning chart), it is possible
that the available woofer mounting depth may increase.
The enclosure consists of a 2.09 cu/ft ported chamber, and a 2.06 cu/ft sealed
chamber. The edges of the front, back, top and bottom use mitered joints, so
there's 50% more surface area for the special glue that bonds them. For
strength, the woofer mounting panel and the Plexiglas mounting panel are mounted
using a full dado groove. The enclosure is covered with durable gray carpet.
This enclosure has a pair of spring post terminals located on the rear of the
enclosure. The spring posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, banana plugs
or dual banana plugs. The terminal cup is recessed so the spring posts do not
protrude from the back panel.
Brackets (not included) are recommended
for more secure mounting.
Note: The Plexiglas
window is not covered under warranty.
