He had Pete do the design from TTB, but unfortunately it didnt quite fit my build style. So Chris re-did the design, keeping the internal dims and everything exact, just changed the orientation of the panels to fit our style a little better.

Not exactly sure whats going in the enclosure, or what it is going in. It will be two mirrored enclosures, that he will be bolting together once he gets them in his vehicle.

I got working hard this weekend, and didnt take too many pics. As we set now, both enclosures are completely built, and will bet getting sanded, and ports painted tomorrow. From there, carpet soon.

Onto the pics...

Dang seems like all these new trucks are giving gobs of room for regular cab systems. Either that or your really short and don't mind the seat being pushed all the way up lol. Sure looks like it is gonna be a sweet setup.

Oh and BJ flawless work as usual, doesn't get any better than this at all.

Finally got a little more done on this project. I have one of the two parts completely finished, and the second is 80% carpeted. Im getting the threaded inserts to put them together tomorrow, and going to install them. Then it will be ready to package up and send out.

Little more progress tonight. I got the second enclosure carpeted. The customer is going to be mounting them together once he gets them in the truck, so I drilled and installed the threaded inserts for him. I ended up using 8 of the 3/8" inserts with bolts. It held them together very well. Those things wont be separating.

That wasnt the plan, but I might be able to get you some and send them along. Just depends on if my supplier has enough in stock or not... LMK.

Bingo. Only thing that was changed from Pete's original, was the orientation of the panels.

Yes, Its getting shipped. It will be 2 separate packages though. Probably going to run in the neighborhood of $100 for the pair.

Actually it was and I quote:

"I actually have a better option yet

I have used threaded wood inserts in the builds that involve interchangeable ports. Its basically a "nut" in a way, that screws into the wood. Inside it has threads to accept a bolt. Works very very well, and would probably be your best option.

This was in reference to how Birch grabs better and is stronger to hold subs.

When I said this, I was referring to the way the two seperate enclosures will be mounted together. I was recommending the inserts over having you just screw them together. There is no way I can drill and install them for the woofers and be able to guarantee they will fit/line up correctly. Know what I mean?

BTW, they were scheduled to be picked up by DHL this morning. Ill have some tracking info for you tonight.
