That looks **** good for a first install. How do the subs sound? and what are the dimensions of the box if you don't mind me asking? I'm building a box for my cousins He2's and wasn't sure how I was gonna do the port. :)

is it really your first? Im not calling you a liar but most peoples first install consist of a prefab box and some crappy gear.

The first install I did wasnt bad but it wasnt my car either. It was 2 Volfenhag 12"s (he wanted them they were cheap) in a box built to spec on a RF P3002. My fiorst install in my truck is whats in my sig.

Nice box btw. I really like what you did with the batt

^^^agrees. very good install for a first! Considering you've worked with fiberglass in the past I'm afraid to see how good your second, third and fourth install will be! Time to start doing family and friends install to make money for your future car audio purchases. keep up the good work.
