Nice looking install. I may have went with a different color (maybe the color of car) but otherwise real nice. Keep up the good work.

09-28-2005, 08:27 PM
it dont sound bad the box rattles a little bit , that y i got to make a new one . the wood is not think enough i think .

09-28-2005, 09:03 PM
the box itself rattles? did you glue it together? caulk it?

if the trunk rattles you just need some fatmat or something

you have a layer of resin inside the box? might solve your problems, or try some cross bracing.. hate to see you take a claw hammer to that box.

09-29-2005, 10:05 AM
What wood did you use? You need to have used 3/4" MDF. If you did the build is under par and some bracing is a good idea.

I'm a noob at building boxes, and was going to design one for my car... what do you mean by bracing?

09-29-2005, 11:38 AM
put some 4 inch x 3/4 inch bracing material inside the box.. like in the middle of the box.. between the subwoofer and the amp from the front to the rear of the box.. internally.. if that made any sense.

Bracing is wood used within the box to keep the walls from flexing.

09-29-2005, 01:08 PM
the box is 7 1/4 deep x 14 high x 23 1/2 long those are the internal demensions the wood is 1/2 inch thick . so that about 1.38 cubes. - the speaker displacement .096.
is that box big enough for the sub or should i got with 2 or more cubes

Are you sure it's not the trunk and/or trunk panels rattling?

09-30-2005, 11:34 AM
well i braced the box and now the truck rattle . now i got to fix that . i guess spray foam will work
