I need someone to get me some box plans for my wall. The gross dimensions are....

41H x 32D x 30H

I have Jellyfish420 working on it now and I will still pay you for it but I was wondering if anyone else could give me some plans. That includes bracing and any tips for the dancefloor.

Thanks.

u ever see my wall sketchup?

inapontiac
08-31-2007, 07:27 PM
Middle. Its the gross measurements. I can fit a box, no kind of slanted top shoulder pieces.

I have seen yours but I dunno about cutting up my rear deck and all that. Still a daily driver.

If you can come up with some kind of measurements, I want it tuned to 30hz and I just got jellyfish's design and that looks promising. Would you reccomend port on top or bottom, or would it even make a noticble difference.

i like port bottom, you can feel it a whole lot more.

im not suggesting that you do any cutting....check the dancefloor that i put in.

you need some 1/2 or 5/8 bolts, and fender washers on each side


measure from the sides......where you think that the sides of the box will be.

if you measured from the middle, once you get the back, and other **** on, the top and all that wont fit, because the middle has a bow, and the sides probably wont evenm go on right.

i elarned that the hard way

twice...

My gas tank is right below my rear seats. I dont really have a choice. I hear if I use some Liquid nails or something and some plumbers straps, I should be fine.

don't chince out on the dance floor...it could KILL YOU! seriously, if you was in a little fender bender, would you feel safe w/ liquid nails and plumbers strap being the only thing holding 200lbs of wood, and speakers from squishing you? is your grand am the 2 or 4 door? i've got an 01 4door in my driveway. if i get a chance tommorow i'll check it out and see what i would do w/ the dance floor.

It is a 4door and I figured that was the best I can do. Here are some pictures...

heres what i would do...
for the back, get you some metal, thicker metal...not plumbers strap. make it come down from your seat belt, and put a bolt through that. here's a pic, you should be able to tell from that. back ones from seat belt down, and the front, put the bolt right in the corner, gas tank doesn't go all the way to the corner. i would get a nut and bolt, weld the nut to the floor( you know, pull the carpet back, then cover it back up. w/ a little slit in the carpet) here is a crappy paint pic. here is a quick legend:
red= metal
yellow= wood/gas
blue=nut/bolt
black=car
the nut welded to the floor, the bolt the metal to the nut. i would screw 2 pieces of wood together for the dancefloor, that way you could countersink the nuts. (the small pic in the corner is a close up of the welded bracket.

if you use liquid nails in the front, and run the dance floor all the way to the back of the botom of the trunk (2 piece it if you have too) and run some bolts through, you will be fine.

plumbers strap wont do anything but snap and probably come flying at you after the wall has smashed you.

IIRC when i had my G/A apart the floor of the trunk sits up QUITE a bit higher than the front, i believe if he was to do that he would end up w/ a bit of an angle for the dance floor. if you had the resources. i'd drop the tank and run some bolts up from the bottom. than put the tank back in...but i know not everyone can drop a tank :(

Alright. I got the dancefloor in yesterday. All level. It sits on the back trunk lip and is dead even. I used only wood glue and liquid nails to hold it all together....which i heard will do the trick. I cannot bolt anything down, seeing as the dancefloor is only over top of the tank. I do not want to drop the tank and i am willing to fill the bottom below the dancefloor with any kind of wood/liquid nails and anything else i can find and screw the dancefloor down into the other wood.

asking a question. I cannot bolt anything under the dancefloor. I am stuck with liquid nails. pics tomorrow. hopefully back wall and sides also.

if nothing else run some (thick) angle brackets from the back of the box to the trunk of the floor. in addition to your straps. i'd hate to see the headline "PERSON KILLED BY BASS"

I actually said this to him while I was there.

For some reason I dont think its gonna happen.

What about using L shaped brackets in the back of the wall to connect to the floor of the trunk? Alot of them larger sized punks should do the trick... well, better then what you've got going now. Filling underneath it w/ glue and liquid nails is going to do nothing for you when you go from 55mph to 0 in a split second. It was said before... The gas tank isn't that big, just find out where it runs

andrew

those wont do anything either...screws will rip out of the wall...it will hold it in place, until he hits the brakes any harder than normal....


bolt through the metal...
