I finished the construction on my second box for a 2005 Nissan Titan KC. This time it is an upfiring design for 2 JL 10W3V2 subs and has about 0.8 ft^3 per side. I am trying to decide what to do for the finishing. I had the idea to put a single layer of fiberglass and resin down and then either paint or carped it so that the finishing would be nice and smooth and it would add some rigidity to the overall box. Now I am thinking about just using some bondo and a sanding block to get it nice and then painting or carpeting it. My number one idea right now is to paint most of it black and then carpet the face that has the speakers on it. Can anybody comment on what they think would look the best and be the most durable? Or give me any other ideas. I would really appriciate it!

And also, if I carpet it, has anybody ever tried to epoxy the carpet on? I figure it would hold it on better than that spray adhesive stuff.

Just use contact cement for the carpet.It will hold MUCH MUCH longer than the spray ****.And a layer of fiberglass won't do jack for the "rigidity" of the enclosure.

Just throw carpet on it and be done with it.If you did any carpet/paint mixture I'd carpet the rest of the box and paint the front.
