Hey there ok I was told that no one will do it for free that is totally understandable. Ok I am tihnking this is going to be a pretty tricky deisgn. I have a 2001 Ford F-150 regular cab. Now I also have 2 12" kicker solo-baric L7's I want to put these behind my seats without losing to much room. I am tihnking I would like to get around 1.25 cubes of air space each. and I want the box the be sealed. I also want a separate box for each sub. I am also wanting to use fiberglass for the construction of this box. So does anyone think they can tackle such a project if so just let me know. and if you need any more info just let me know... thanx for your time I hope I have given enough info. also plz let me know what you charge to do such plans thanx a bundle

Building you a box and including fiberglass in to the install, is quite the project. You would be better off finding some one loacally to help you out. As they will need hands on time with your car.

Just a thought.

oh I didn't realize that and there is no one anywhere within 4 hours that does fiberglass. I live In a small town up in Canada so help is hard to get too

There are a lot of DIY's on the internet. Try to give most of them a read. See if this is something you could learn to do and give it a go. Self achievement>all IMHO.

yamaman

I tihnk I have read almost all the diy's twice haha. I am confident I can build it myself. I just don't have any talent to draw out plans or anything so I would pretty well be doing it as I go and I would like something to reference off of.

If you can get a rough draft of the design and measuments you have in mind, I'm sure someone here can look over them and give some pointers. Try to come up with a rough draft of your ideas and post it:)

i think jellyfish420 did a really nice glass job for a pick up. he used re 8s i believed. with fiberglass theres really no way i can help you out as far as plans. But people, including myself, would be more than happy to offer advice/help/tips on fiberglassing.

yamaman
07-15-2005, 01:09 PM
I can't even do up rough drafts I have got to be the worst artist in the world I sat down for a day trying to draw something up but I have no luck at all.

80 no I don't have to use fiberglass but i was tihnking bout using it so I can use every possible inch of room I got because I know it is going to be very hard to fit these puppies in there

yamaman
07-15-2005, 01:13 PM
alright then b thanx I am not surprised that you can't make plans without have the truck there and stuff. as for the offer on advice and stuff that will be awesome. I am sure I will be coming back for help once I start getting everything together. thanx again man

When you get ready to start glassing or building the box, I would be happy to help you in any way. Throw some questions my way if I can help at all.

yamaman
07-15-2005, 01:37 PM
thanx for the offers guys I will more than likely use them haha

yamaman

alrighty I was told not to have the subs somewhat facing each other. I was going to do a design like this box here before. Are these facing each other to much?? r what r your opinions and improvemtns and suggestion that can be made to this box. thanx everyone

sorry file to large I will try to resize it

what about going sealed?
r u ok with that...

yamaman
07-15-2005, 02:02 PM
yes that is what I want to do. I was also tihnking of using just one L7 and porting the box but I don't feel confident making a ported box

yamaman
07-15-2005, 02:03 PM
so I am tihking sealed is the best way to go for me

A ported box would be easier then a fiberglass box

yamaman

if I do a ported box it will also be fiberglass. But I want to go sealed

With a box like the one shown above you would lose more room than if you just built one out of 3/4" mdf... Take some measurements of the space that you do have behind your seat (height, width, bottom depth, top depth) and I'm sure someone can help you design a nice mdf box. :)

ps nice box. why do you want to get rid off it?

yamaman
07-16-2005, 02:32 PM
B That is not my box it is the one I was going to use as a reference to make mine. As for the measurements I will get some together sometime and post them up and see maybe what someone can come up with. The reason I want to use fiberglass is because I want to learn how to do it and make it look different than anything else around here.

Man ,,,,twelves are gonna take alot of space out your truck if you do that in a regular cab. Why not just do a wedge shape and leave a cutout in the middle to mount your amp on?

yamaman
07-16-2005, 10:01 PM
maybe I will but i tihnk I still want to use fiberglass

Just build the back and sides out of mdf, then fiberglass the front... or do the whole thing in fiberglass.... either way, somebody will help!

yamaman
07-17-2005, 03:46 PM
I am thinking of doing the bottom and side out of MDF and the front and back form fiberglass because I want to have to the back it cits right flush with the back of my cab because there is a whole bunch of curves and things on my back wall. Oh well I will figure something out

Bake

you could just use the back wall of the cab as the back of the box. deadin it and seal the sides,top,and bottom to it. Then use mdf or glass for the front. It would be a little more permanent, but could save some space.

yamaman
07-17-2005, 08:54 PM
That would be a good idea but I tihnk it would make it alot more difficult to make and be pretty tricky to ensure a seal the the cab.

Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and have to disagree with you there....

Just fiberglass it if thats what you want to do, I know you capable, youre such a stud! :eek:

:highhorse

I think using fiberglass would save you just as much space as if I would use the back of the cab because it will fit the contours of my truck. we will see I might make the back just flat with some MDF...
