    there are many types/brands. rhino liner sucks anyway. line-x is better. we have a line-x spray shop in town and they do different colors and grit. line-x doesn't fade like rhino liner. there's also the DIY roll on...herculiner. just use a roller as you would for painting walls. but i think that's more gritty than i'd like. mine is smooth to the touch texture but i had to use like 3 or 4 spray cans and they are like %16 each or more. your box would probably take just as much. but the end product is phenomenal. all these products can be found at basically any auto parts store. pep boys, auto zone, checker auto parts which i think is called advance auto parts nationwide. etc, etc...

    i figure if it's good enough for svs, then it's good enough for me. and yes, that's my old 12.2 driver from my svs after i upgraded to the 12.3's. everyone else sold theirs off. i utilized mine for the truck since it was a nice 4 ohm driver and i have a spare sitting in my spare room for backup. but this thing slams and hadles the 500 watt rockford with ease.

    and like i said, the rattle cans i used had some sort of provision on it where depending on how you adjust the nozzle, it would come out less textured or more. mine is very tough and durable yet not gritty at all. textured for sure. but very attractive. a smooth texture.

    i can see how one could go wrong choosing this route though. it's alot tougher than painting with a normal spraypaint can. the texturing takes a bit of getting used to. my first can was more or less a practice can. but even if you mess up, you can layer this stuff over and over, so no worries.

    I know you don't really care for my input but here it is anyway's:

    Looking good! For a "textured" finish have a look see if you can find "fleck stone" spray bomb's, we used it all the time when we were younger because carpetting a box was not an option for us. I think DuPont is the manufacturer

    The fleckstone is a mix of white/gray/black and has a similar finish to the bed liner stuff (coarse texture but not sand paper like) and is easier to work with IMHO Overall it is a med/light finish so you could still get that contrast of the light finish with dark component's you were pondering earlier ;)

    What's with the first comment?

    I take everyone's opinion into consideration, unless they're on my ignore list and you're not on it :D

    I'll google it now then, I have considered the bed-liner stuff before even asking it on here but I've always seen the really sand-paper coarse stuff. I'll see what's less expensive as well since that was my goal when building this thing. Even if I stopped at the primer-stage, it's a sick sub and hits damn low.

    Maybe something like this I bought this box like this looks and feels like a type of bedliner coating. sorry not much help wish I knew what was used it does have a nice finish and very durable. Has anyone thought of using a SR124 for a DIY home sub seems pretty beefy and would be up to the task.

    LOL

    Got it. At about 15 bucks per can (for 4 cans) of that liner though comes out to as much as I paid for the driver itself!

    I'll check some out today at some nearby automotive shops, and see if I can get by with 3 cans.

    I thought about hitting Nik up, he was interested in my bike jacket for the longest time and it seemed like a fair trade but I don't know if he still wants/needs it.

    You making some of that crazy lasagna? Might have to make a trip down there sometime lol :D

    Don't tempt me, I'm getting hungry now just thinking about it. Can't wait to try those Scarlets, although whenever some funds free up I might just buy them from you.

    To think in this economy we're still buying/selling audio gear :p

    I have no problems with it, but if I can pay a little more for something absolutely rugged and that'll last awhile....I think I'll go with that choice instead.

    you can be left with little fleck pieces that flake off when brushed up against. i guess you could clear it. it's just a personal opinion. nothing "wrong" with it. just feel there are better options out there. and yes, i've fleckstoned many things in my time.

    Sanded down, coat of primer, sanded down again, another coat....and I've got errands to run. After I'm thinking I get to sand it down again so it's ready for paint but it's getting late and the weather isn't looking too good ahead of me so I think it's going to stay like this awhile. Put it all back together and it's sitting back next to my Maggie.........now if only I had a power cord to plug it in with.

    damn dude, you got me wanting to make my own DIY sub for to accompany my sda's that i've been procrastinating getting done! it doesn't look like you'll be able to pull it very far away from the side wall. but if you need to, you can pull it forward if it seems "boomy" from corner-loading.

    I've got the gain at about.....1/5th and cross-over at around 60hz. I'm surprised how quick this sub plays but I'm still looking to try something musical. Was hoping I could finish it up so I can sell it but it looks like I'll put that off for awhile as well.

    I'm lacking one now only because the preamp I got didn't have one so I used the one that I had bought for my sub. Funny thing is I drove everywhere until I found one - http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...ductId=3875423

    I had gone to Radioshack (2-3 diff ones), hardware stores, target, a bunch of diff. places and they all had the one with the circular end on it (that ps3/ps2 uses). It was only like 8 bucks but how much $ was it in gas?! lol

    Oh, so you're good now? I have a couple spare OCZ ones from my old computer builds, and i don't think there's really any difference fundamentally. Might not sound as good as a $1000 cord, but it should work. I'll test one on something tonite.

    No I'm not lol

    I mean't the power had I was using for the sub is being used for the preamp. I took the tv's power cord temporarily to hook my sub up....since the wife's not home and I've got tunes going. Can't say I'll have tunes going with the sub later on when she gets home

    I'll probably end up grabbing them, my wifes pretty supportive of my 'hobby'...I mean I was looking at different pairs of Klipsch KG's and was telling her I'd like something for the bedroom. She said I can get'em as long as she's not buying them so I'm in the clear :D

    Id still like to demo them, but whatever works for you tbh. How much thicker are those scarlets as opposed to the sidewinders?

    They don't seem a whole lot thicker, but they've got a "scarlet" rubber/plastic covering instead of the braided covering on the sidewinders. They're just heavier, and the connectors seem to be of higher quality.

    God i keep forgetting. I PROMISE i'll update the thread with pics tonite.
