Well a buddy of mine needed a new sub box for his truck, so we started brainstorming a while ago. It's a 99 tacoma extended cab. There's a hump where the rear seats fold down, and it has a compartment in there for the jack. He still wanted access to it, so we'd have to build around it. The sub he has to use is a Hertz Hi-energy 12" that we picked up for DIRT cheap. So I figured that we'd make a box that kind of rounded around the whole thing.. I guess pictures speak a thousand words..

Near the bottom part of it, we were going to make more enclosure go down, but there was a lot more room in there than I tohught, so we just laid a second piece down beside where the woofer mounts and sealed her up. There's also a brace in there to make it a little more rigid. It will also be seeing carpet in the near future.

it is downfiring. It's actually pretty close to the same volume as the ported box firing up he just had in there. I gotta snap some in-the-truck pictures yet.

it is 1/2 inch :(

it was the only material they had ta the hardware store (small town). So we made due, as for the curve, I know that we should have all of the cuts touching eachother, but with such a slow curve at the bottom of the box it would have gotten pretty choppy. So we used a sub-flooring adhesive to go throughout. It hardened it up pretty good, and is a lot cheaper than resin. And I can't really see there being a problem with strength as my friend usually keeps the sub volume minimal anyways. I gotta get some install pictures yet, it was too dark out when we finished.

well here she is..

didnt fit the way i wanted against the folding seat, but it'll be shimmed when we go to carpet it.. same with the block at the bottom.. we'll be making something a little more permanent later
