I had planned on a cool 3-D wrap around flame and adhesive checkerboard with "inverted color mustang emblem" cut and grafted in to cover these enclosures I built for my friends Mustang. He stopped by while I was just starting the flames and implied he'd like them carpeted - having no way of seeing my vision I scrapped my plans. I had not built the boxes with routed seams for carpet so I cut 2 front panels and made appropriate router cuts so I could at least have nice carpet seams tucked in the front. Rather than covering the 2 new panels with carpet I tried my hand at some vinyl covering. It was a lot of extra work to change plans mid-stream but the "black on black" turned out very clean, **** even. This is my first attempt with carpet and vinyl- and my new router for that matter. I cut a 2 ohm label out of ABS plastic and covered polished aluminum to wrap the power terminals to overlap the carpet where I had no way to make a clean tuck on the side, turned out OK too. Next time I'll plan ahead and it will all be easier but I'm happy with my first effort.

Actually sounded good, I tested the theory on bass not canceling out like higher frequencys, but finding a way to fit two 1.7 cu ft boxes in a Mustang trunk was a challenge.

Getting through the small trunk opening and fitting over fender wells and still leaving room to access spare tire made it funky.

I don't understand you guys, but I'm guessing that I should hope the kid I built these boxes for free for- for his 2 $50 woofers- thinks more of them than you. Thanks for the feedback though, I always respect honesty.

Excellent wood working skills, but not too many people are too fond of Audiobahn on the forum. The stigma that Audiobahn automatically carries on to everything around it :/ Is that Crazy Larry's logo in your avatar BTW?

I don't really like the look, but you did a great job building it. Personally I would have fiberglassed most of it.

Nice craftsmanship, looks well built. If you built those boxes for free, then you can build mine all you want.;)
