here is a couple more pics...i'm gonna start bondo tommorow.
i'm painting it black w/ "soundstream" in pink...don't ask me, i said it'd be ugly too! but that what she wants. i tried to talk her into tan leather, to match her interior. but she's seen the stuff i've painted before, and she would rather wait an extra week for a freakin 10hr paint job!

in case you couldn't tell, the flat part (that you cant see) goes against the back seat, and the flat part in the front is where the amp is gonna be mounted...

i was hoping to have some painted pics up tonite...but when i test fit it this morning before i started painting, i noticed that in the front you could see down a little bit further than i bondoed. so you could still see some of the fiberglass. well a little bit more bondo, and i was half way finished wet sanding the primer when i quit. i forgot to take pics, sorry. i should have some bread winner pics tommorow.....;)

saywhat?

did u sit in the trunk while doing this? i hate leaning over trunks and laying down flat on my back to glass and all that. SUV's, Trucks, and Hatchbacks are god. i hope to start a box tomorrow to sell on the forum, or ebay. wish me luck.

10-15-2005, 09:12 PM
overall i'm happy w/ it. i scuffed the paint in a couple places putting it in. and the frickin sub is crooked! it was such a tight fit, once i got it in and realized it was crooked, there was no way i was getting it out w/o breaking something. it sounds pretty good, i'm not a big fan of sealed, not enough output for me, but its loud enough for her. what do you think?

It looks good, all you need to do now is get a cover for that spare tire that detracts from the greatness of your custom box..

there is a cover for the spare. i just didn't have a razor to cut the carpet. its back in now. yea req, you would have to notice wouldn't you...:( i don't know what happened. and i couldn't mount the amp any farther forward (up towards hatch) or else she couldn't get the spare out. in the next couple weeks i'm gonna be porting it. after listening to it today....it *****! this sub did really good in my car in a rediculous box, 6.5ft @ 32Hz. and it was **** loud off 800w, and in this sealed box its not loud at all off 880w.

yeah ports are the grates thing in the world. what is the best way to port a fiberglass box. like how do u find in volume of the box. i plan on building a custome fiberglass box for my GF next year but refuse to make a sealed box. ive built two sealed boxes in my life, and both where for vehiclas where space was a factor.
