We designed the 12" Subwoofer Starter Kit to make it easy to build your own custom DIY subwoofer with minimal tools. This kit includes a pre-cut front baffle and bracing. Therefore, you just need to make the top, bottom, sides, and back using all straight cuts with no tricky dadoes or rabbets required.
- 1-1/2" thick front baffle for a solid surface to mount your driver
- Perfect fit for any of the 12" Dayton Audio Reference Series or Ultimax subwoofers
- 11-1/8" cutout (12-7/16" recess) fits many popular subwoofers

Consisting of just baffles and bracing, the 12" Subwoofer Starter Kit is the easiest and most cost effective way to build a custom 2.0 cubic foot subwoofer enclosure for novice woodworkers. Accurately cutting a hole and recess for a driver requires a high level of precision and specialized tools which can be difficult for anyone new to woodworking or who does not have space for a full woodshop. Therefore, with a precut double layer 1-1/2" thick front baffle with driver recess and round overs, along with an extensive bracing design, all of the difficult work has been done for you. You just need to cut the remaining the remaining pieces, including four 16" x 16" pieces of 3/4" MDF for the top, bottom, and sides, and one 17-1/2" x 16" piece 3/4" MDF for the back. If using a table saw you only need to move the fence once to complete the entire enclosure.
During the CNC manufacturing process, rabbets dadoes are cut into the front panel for precise panel alignment. A unique two-piece brace adds superior rigidity without affecting the subwoofer's performance. The result is a resonance-free, sealed subwoofer cabinet. When your friends ask about it, you get the pleasure of saying, "I built it myself!"
This 12" starter kit is cut specifically for the Dayton Audio Reference Series Subwoofers, but is suitable for many popular drivers. Check the recess dimensions, cutout dimensions, and enclosure volume to ensure a proper fit.
