Project Description:

A cabinet built out of MDF, painted in weather proof paint, finished with a Polk weather resistant 10″ driver and a Fosi amplifier to power it.

Design Goals:
I wanted something that I could leave outside under a shed. That is why I went with the Polk driver.

Driver Selection:

Polk Audio DB1042SVC 10” Single Voice Coil Subwoofer with Marine Certification

Enclosure Design

I went with MDF because it was the cheapest I could find and looks didn’t matter in this use case. I used sub box pro to design it using the parameters from the parts express specifications section.

Crossover Design:


Tips & Tricks:



It worked out great. I can hear bass throughout my backyard with my Fosi amp set at max power. We will see how it holds up in 3-4 years after sitting in the sun, but as of now, its been a great upgrade to my setup.

About the Designer:

This is my first time building a speaker, and will not be my last. I just dipped my feet into the world of audio gear and I still have a lot to learn, I am currently studying electronics/engineering.
