Didn't take any real build pics as you've seen enough stacks of MDF by now.

Box is 3.8^3 @ 35Hz going off the space I had to work with. Has a partial double baffle as I didn't want to eat up any more volume and did a semi flush mount. He only had a Kicker 750watt amp when we installed it, but was stepping up to a 3k amp over the weekend.

My ******* forgot to get installed pics, so we have to settle for his camera phone ones.

Simple box but looks pretty good and represents FI nicely. He said it SLAMS off the new amp.

Not to down your amazing work but isn't 3.8 cube a little to small for that space consuming sub? I mean I'm working on a box plan myself and I don't want to go lower than 4.5 cuft. with the 15" btl.

But overall that box is very neat and cleannnnn. ;)

FI recommends 3-5 cubes and I would liked to have gone bigger, but had to go off of his trunk measurements, so that was the best I could do. With the power he has being on the small side is probably a good thing ;)

Didn't want to take up any more volume since the box was on the "small" side for a 15" BTL...

Thanks. That was my 2nd try as I F'd up the first one. Man I'd love a CNC machine for stuff like that. Scrolling Skilsaw can be a bish at times :laugh:

he only gets the trophies because they feel sorry for him. because his suv ain't as loud as your trunk car. :D
