Hi

Yeah as you read it, i want to add a fish tank to my new installation, but i'm kind of afraid cause of the "water factor", i'm planning on doing it with plexi does any body have any experience on doing fish tanks that can help me about the thicker of the plexi.

And what should take care off.

Thanks.

simple solution is to cut a hole in the side and put the subwoofer there. make sure its a titanium/aluminum cone and rubber surround so you dont get leaks. water is a great for acoustic suspension



plus if your fish die it will make it look like theyre still alive, great if you have kids.

Dont forget, fishtanks work best as an enclosure when you use cardboard for the baffle.

Here is where i get **** off with all this fu**** id***, if you dont have enought imagination or not even enought info dont post just to get your post counter goes up.

The fish tank is not gonna be part of the structure of the box (obviously) it is just gonna be an accesorie for car shows and stuff like that fishes wont be in there all the time just in those little ocassion other part of the time they will be in their 50 gls fish tank.

PS: to all those retards, I dont have the fault that your mind cant create new things a you just have to copy what you see.

ive seen it done before, but what they did was make the fish tank plexi walls 3/4" thick with about 3" between the walls, then used one of the walls as the see-thru area of a bandpass box. worked ok, but id hate to be the fish.

its not a stupid idea, just a pain in the azz to upkeep.

the fish will die. there isn't much you can do about that. but if you just want it for show, why not make a place for it and slide it in just for the shows?

Hi

Most of the time it will be only bubbles but in the car show is a really great WOW factor the fishes in my car. I want to know what should i take care of, what thickness of plexi do you use and what you use to seal it i think of using some plastic epoxi to ensure it is completely seal and some silicon on the inside.

This is what i want, my car is a hatchback, the fish tank will be in the middle of the subs, it'll be 2" deep (can remember how to write this) about 14" heigh and about 10" wide. It will hace a bubble stick in the botton and a air pump on top with some plug for power i'll try diferent material to reduce vibration and i'll brace nicely the box in the middle.

Now what should i take care off a pay special attention???

This is a really important project to me cause the winner in my category is a friend off mine how have almost unlimited money and sponsors so to beat that you have to be very creative and do thing that almost only you can do specially is you're a little short on money for those kind of stuff, but winning this car show will be a great promo for the audio shop i'm planning on opening.

if u dont know how to design a box to be able to slide a simple fish tank into it you shouldnt be doing it in the first place.

I always thought it was from being really good at fishing wires :confused:

I'm doing a similar thing in my Durango when I redo it. Not using the tank for fish but mounting the amps behind a thin tank so it appears they are underwater. I would go to a place in your area that builds custom fish tanks and ask them about it if I were you.

fish will die in the summer and winter....water will freeze in the winter and then boil in the summer...it would be tight to have a fish tank tho lol.....ive thought of that before
