I need a plexiglass box for my 2005 f150 supercab that will go in the middle backseat. I am PRETTY SURE i am going to have 2 12" SSA Icons. I have already have made the measurements i just am wondering about a couple things.

1. how much a box like this would cost me.
2. if someone could help me out and make this box *****en for me.
3. if it should be ported

Thanks much!

You want the hole thing done in plexi? I have seen people talk about that, but I don't think anybody has actually did it because of how much it would cost.
Your best bet would be figure out what subs you are getting for sure, then work on the box. The box should be made around the parameters of the sub.

heres another thing to think about that i learned from experiance
(dunno how your neighborhood is)

visibility = vunerability

i thought the same as you did when i was your age and wanted to show off my new kicks i bought with my hard earned money then one day i walked out to my car and it was all gone

take my advice impress your friends with the sound not the looks atleast for now untill you can afford a replacement when it does get jacked

how about trying fiberglass instead of plexiglass. easier to work with and cheaper. with those dimensions it'll be way easyier to do fiberglass.

Would fiberglass work good on car seats?
