Id assume there is no "proper" way to build a wall, just different ways to approach it. If you havent read this post (http://forum.carstereos.org/f-car-audio-49/t-the-how-to-build-a-wall-tutorial-is-back-45977) I suggest you look it over as it is a great thread. As for bracing use threaded rod.

I found it easier to build outside of the car.

BTW, if you decide to build outside the car..... BE ABSOLUTELY SURE the enclosures will fit in through the hatch... I came within like a 1/4 inch of not fitting, thank god it fit when i took the side panels off.

I couldnt do so


the only piece that i could build outside was the face/port combination....it was just too big.


thats with all the seats, and the center console, and the parking brake removed.

Yeah I noticed that when looking at your thread. I guess its easier to do so in an suv.

With the vehicle your installing the wall in, do it outside, by all means. My first 2 walls, (8) 12's in a '68 VW Bug, (4) 15's in a '91 Camaro, both built inside the car. My next wall was (4) 18's in a '92 Astro Van. Built it completely outside, took half the time and the patience. My advice, never build inside the vehicle, unless forced too.

i am thinking while 1 box would be more efficient, 2 seperate boxes would be a TON stronger.



Joel get @ me. I ended up on a project in Miami
