    Default Should I have an airhole

    I thought the i386 folder is only present on the windows CD? Well you do not need it, unless you want to install a windows component - now you will have to insert the windows CD instead.

    Interestingly, he is not the first to come up with a cardboard subwoofer...
    Cardboard PC sub
    What happens when you have too much time, money, and subs.
    What happens when you use A REAL SUB in cardboard
    Proper sub enclosure (although I don't know why he chose his Carver amp and Nad pre to power it rather than his car amp...)
    This was an interesting read though.....completely hilarious at his expense.......there's a reason sub boxes are built out of wood and not paper....

    I haven't been on the forum in years and this is one of the first resurrection emails I got. Hilarious. It's a shame we never got a pic of the actual box he had.

    Allow me to answer for him. Yes. If you fail to see that? No amount of drugs will help you.

    Can you please take some pics of this? This sounds amazing.
    Edit: Seeing as OP hasn't been around in a while, who else has a cardboard box sub enclosure. There has to be someone out there right? Right?

    When I was a young, extremely broke punk I found some old woofers and tweeters in my Dad's pile of junk in the basement. I think the woofers were rated for 4W and the tweeters who knows.

    I did the same thing as this, making boxes out of cardboard boxes as I had no money and no way to get to town to buy anything if I had money.

    They sounded like hell but they were better than nothing.

    Mine were sealed with packing tape... venting isn't much needed when you're running 4W max and running it purely off the .5W coming out of your PC's sound card line out. ;)

    And no, I couldn't get a job... I was around 14 years old and the nearest store (a grocery store) was 8 miles away and anything resembling a proper strip mall was 10 miles away.

    I will say this, being dirt poor but surrounded by old technical junk taught me to be resourceful at least. ;)
