this will be my build log thread which i will begin progress on monday. So before the building starts, i have some questions.

This box is for 2 d4 re se 12's 4.0 cu ft @ 32 hz and im using an 8" pvc as port. i was wondering whats the best way to secure this heavy thing? its going to be mounted right on the bottom panel firing back. is there a way to add flares? heres a sketchup of my box: http://www.caraudio.com/gallery/3/4/1/2/0/tworese12.jpg
it would be cool if i could could get some feedback on how my design looks. it is going in between the two front seats of my 01 silverado extended cab. btw being powered by an american bass vfl 150.1

a small piece of wood at the end of the port to keep it up and screw it down

Also, that Vfl150.1 is gonna be a bit much for the SEs, so make sure you set the gains correctly and leave the bass boost alone, or else your coils will be cooked quickly.

Looks good, I was worried for a second u were gonna use liquid nails on the joints but it looks like u used wood glue, good job!! If liquid nails doesnt hold it in there fiberglass resin will do the trick!!! ;)

Nice subs man you'll like em. I got mine sealed but I think they'll sound better in a good ported box, which is what I plan on doing soon.

and a little something arrived yesterday: http://a121.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/33/l_8174d448477b1aec47e5e135a2521e38.jpg
i can't decide on what i should wrap the outside of the box in... i was thinking gray or black suede to match my headliner and A-pillars or i will paint it gloss black. only thing with painting is i havent ever really painted wood before and im not sure how it would turn out.
