:)

You really have quite a few options, you could just use mdf and build a giant box, that resembles a wall, you could build a frame out of wood then fiberglass it, or hell im sure bricks and mortar would work :) might be a little heavy though. Fiberglass would look a hell of a lot better, but if all you care about is sound mdf would work.

You could make a frame out of 2x4's ... then MDF it. Couple sheets thick at the least. Lots of interior and exterior bracing for the box. You get something that big, it's going to flex like a ******.

then don't build a wall... it'll weigh it down too much

That's kind of what I was thinking as well. A wall of subs is going to add several hundred pounds of weight to the vehicle, and for something not designed with a lot of weight in mind (unlike a van or truck), the suspension will need to be carefully watched. A friend of mine had a fairly big system in his Neon awhile back (4 Kicker ZR1000 amps and 2 L715's I think), and combined with the bumpy roads around here, his suspension continually bottomed out, and as a result, even without the system in it, the car still rides very very rough.

While Mustang's are able to support a bit more weight than that Neon was, I'd still be careful of how big a system you put in if you go the wall route.
