in my opinon there is no such thing as too thick when building a fiberglass box. as long as your not worried about weight, layer it on. my first attempt at a box (years ago) I left it to thin and it cracked.

Thanks for posting. Can't wait to see it done.

Are you gonna make mdf rings and mount the mids to the metal door? If so, make a patern and let me copy you.

Day 6: Test fittings and building the foundation for the top of the sub box

Don't worry the amp won't stay chrome for much longer ... It'll be a shame though, its so shiny . Don't the subs look so nice and small? Looks can be deceiving, each weighs about 30 pounds. We ended up making the box a bit too big, so the next step will be to make it smaller by using some expanding foam. Better too big than too small, right?

No real updates today. Just got some more stuff in the mail:

Streetwirez distribution block. It accepts 1/0 awg and has both positive and negative with four 4 awg outputs each. The positive portion is fused and accepts mini-anl fuses.



Twenty-eight square feet of ensolite sound dampener from Raamaudio, and you thought I done with the sound deadening



Alpine PXA-H701 digital sound processor with active crossover and Alpine Rux-C701 controller. Why go passive when you can go active?

Why? I took out my rear speakers so that the sound can go through there.

Just got an email from my dealer that the Usher 8945P's are out of stock till October. So instead of them, I switched to the Peerless Exclusive 7" Woofer.

Yeah, I'm going to go through a process similar to what ca1242(sp) did with his doors. Cut a hole through the door and mount a 3/4 inch mdf ring to the door. That should give me the extra clearance i need to fit a midbass with a depth of 3".... i hope.

Haha, i can't tell you how badly i want this to be done. Its a long and lenghty process, especially since i'm useless without my installer helping.

Do it. If you can find a friend who has fiberglassed before, it'll go a lot smoother.

I know everytime I saw a post on someone's trunk setup, I was always interested in how much it cost. I plan on compiling a list at the end of what I used and the approximate prices. I'd rather do it at the end so I can include all the misc. costs.

Day 7: Work on the top of the Sub box

Sorry for the lack of updates, we've been really busy lately. Hopefully, we'll start full force late this week.

So me and my installer disagree with what to wrap the box and the panels in. I want some type of suede, but he wants carpet (cuz he's lazy ).

What kind of scheme do you think would look best? I'd prefer some type of two-tone theme, maybe black and red?
