Hey all. I know a thread about this was bposted a couple weeks ago, but I figured I'd start it over, and link all the pics here as they should be.

I'd like to start it off saying what a great dude Kenny is. He came all the way to New Port Richey from Miami, at 6ish in the AM to start on this with no sleep, and just said that he wanted it nice and loud, and big (of course). Wanted to keep the tire well at first, but there was pretty much no way to go that, so thats when we decided that it would be best to glass the tire well into the enclosure. what that means is that we made use of the tirewell which would have been useless, and obtained an adequate amount of mounting depth as the 18 inch that he choose to go with (RE SX) wouldnt have enough room behind the sub for proper ventilation.

Started the project off by taping off the entire spare tire well. spare was a full size spare on a 16 inch rim

A single layer of resin in most places, just to get a base idea on how much resin would be used

More pics of the beginning portion in Tampa.

bottom test fit of the wood itself, just still getting an idea of how everything may work itself into place

thats a pretty big F'er right there

here is the first pic of the cutout of the trunk fitting piece (bottom)

If you notice, it looks off center, ill explain why later.

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d177/iamamp3pimp/Worklogs/Enclosures/Kenny%20Pollock/DSCF1122.jpg

last shot of that one.

I build the botom/sides of the box, and sadly it was too tall. Not too tall to fit in the trunk, but it fit right between the two pieces that come down in the back when you close the trunk (which is why the piece looks off center, because as is the spare tire well. It itself is off center) there are 2 springs on the inside of those hinges that i didnt realise existed until we test closed the trunk, and it just did not work. they came down on the box themself, and there was no way around it, the box had to be smaller. I didnt get any pics of this, but i did come up with a remedy for it. I had to trim one inch off of the entire box, which allowed those hinges to move freely, and allowed the trunk to close.

here ti is after that cut

These are all the pics that i have in tampa, but after this i got some glass down, and 2-3 layers of mat in most places.

07-26-2006, 07:43 PM
so as the story goes, it was late, and the project was about 35-40 % done. at around 1 AM or so (was working on this one for quite awhile, and making various trips to the store, and having major attention to detail) I talked with Kenny and presented a few options

him and his friend could crash at my place and shower and w/e, they could do the same in a nearby motel, or i could go out there in 2 days to finish the job (Kenny is from Miami)

Kenny decided that it was best if i went down to MIA to finish (and im not going to overlook any reason to go to beautiful MIA, even if it is for just work. I decided to take the trip down there friday night/saturday morning. I started the project on thursday, and hadn't slept 4 hours since, and I felt ok with that, and that i had a mission to accomplish, and i did so. I drove to MIA and got started finishing up bright and early saturday morning. Enough with a story and on with more pics.

This is after most of the glass was laid

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d177/iamamp3pimp/Worklogs/Enclosures/Kenny%20Pollock/Picture182.jpg

its 7/8 layers thick in most places, but i needed to add reinforcement on the areas that the glass connected with the box, so i continued to lay more layers of mat.

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d177/iamamp3pimp/Worklogs/Enclosures/Kenny%20Pollock/Picture183.jpg

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d177/iamamp3pimp/Worklogs/Enclosures/Kenny%20Pollock/Picture184.jpg

yes, that is a big round piece of MDF in the bottom, to add stability, without having to glass all of that area, it was more cost and time efficent as well.


one of the corners.

07-26-2006, 07:56 PM
the idea that we ended up with, was to naturally run the front (top) of the box with 2 baffles, and i had an idea about running a false face across the entire surface of the trunk.


had to run, more pics coming soon

here are a couple pics of the false face that was applied on the box. this was easily the most difficult part of the process.

Carpeted the top of the box. just the top area because of the dual face. the reason being is that the false face does not go all the way to the back of the box, but where the carpet ends.

that was a tough spot btw

we put trash can liners along the side to protect the carpet from overspray on the glue.

The carpeting process.........this wasnt as easy as you would think...getting the sides (as far as youc an see) the underside, and the top.

Obviously you have never worked with glass. You don't sand every layer for any reason. You construct it without bubbles from the begining to end...

It reduces strength...

trigger, hes working on a curved surface, really its not a large portion to glass, therefore the bubbles really dont matter, its not like its flexing like mad. its inside a curved area, glassed to fit, its not going to flex.

WOW **** dude, didn't even see this thread.

Robin did an awesome job, and likes to get the job done. That's why I'm working with him to replace this setup again ;) Same box, just tuned higher somehow and new sub, new amp, new electrical system, deadening, etc.

It took two LONG, FULL days to get this done. Robin, when I saw one of the pics of the false face construction I thought of the razor blade incident ;)

Thanks again Robin! It's almost as loud as expected... too bad you won't be able to hear it probably as it will all be sold before we put in the next system.

I want to bet the 149.6 or whatever record at the show I went to, and I found a **** replacement for the SX. The box will stay the same, just modified a little bit, some modifications to the car, upgraded electrical system and amp, new sub, sound deadening...

The full proof way of not getting jack is to not show people your stuff. Thieves don't nessesarily have to see it to know you have something. They just gotta hear it. Like the old saying goes, "Out of mind, out of sight." Besides, no one likes a showoff anyways.

people can break into cars for seemingly no reason, too.

my girlfriend got two windows smashed in and all her stuff riffled through, and all they took was my poker chips (~$100) and some drinking glasses form Target ($10). she has a blazer with tinted windows, and absolutely nothing was in plain view! no deck no sound system, none of the stuff that was stolen was visible. i really have no idea why they chose her's (it's in a parking ramp across from our aparment, there's hundreds of cars in it), and why they chose to break two windows instead of just one (and unlocking the door) doesn't make much sense either. mostly just caused a pain for her to deal with the insurance company, file a police report, wait a few days before she could get new windows installed, etc.
