ive been a member of this site for a couple years and havent posted up any more builds becasue i got yelled at and called a fake becasue no one beleived taht someone my age was doing these builds. but im on here enough i mite as well contribute.

The vehicle is an 06 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Sub: 15" Fi BTL
Amp: Rockford Fosgate t2500bd
Batterys : CD tech 76ah
Wire: Knu Kolossus Fleks 1/0

So my first thoguht was that i had to make this build really classy and look integrated with the car. the customer is 16 years old and his dad was really worried about me destroying the car in the process lol. So i had to make the spare tire bolt accessable, and be able to take everything out and out it back stock. i couldnt take up the entire back either. I also had to use the stock nav head unit :(...so along with the LOC i had to add a line driver lol.

So first step is makin the box as small as possible. i ended up around 4ft^3 @33hz.

The port had to be raised up becasue of the false floor. i also covered the inside of the port in Brushed aluminum ALUPANEL, an 1/8" aluminum/abs composite panel.

next comes the false floor which fit nicely in the area where the old floor was. the front of the box is also partly covered in Aluminum for the parts that will be exposed through the front plate.

after a lonf night of thinkin how i was going to do the floor, 9515rob gace me the idea of curving it with the factory panel. so this is the template piece that will be used to create a raised edge with bondo that the wood grain inserts will sit flush in.

with the floor cut out

The body filler done. the template has to be sanded down on all edges so it will fit with the vinyl on there.

A few pics of the wood grain insert and vinyl. its kinda hard to see the raised edge in these pictures.

next is the front panel. becasue of the curves of the quarter panels i had to get complicated to get it perfect. i should have taken pics of how i did this but its pretty common. i rough cut the edges of the board and then taped off the side quarter panels. then i took Fiberglass reinforced filler and forced it into the gaps between the board and the panel. after it dried i took it out and sanded off the excess with abelt sander. it turned out pretty **** good.

then i took it and did the same bondo technique with the port vents.

the front panel is raised off of the box 1/4" so that LEDS can show through the gap.
The rest of the build i had to rush to get it out of the garage so i didnt take any pics. but hers some finished pics.

The white diamonds on top are woodgraid abs rings with white plexi so that the blue leds with give off more of a glow. Under that is just white formica so that the light will relect better. the left one will have a rockford logo and right a FI. the middle one has my KG logo that is painted from the back. i had reverse decals made for that reason lol.

yes but here is the thing. if you remember how the BACK seat side paneling had no panels...i want to put a layer of wood on them then mount the amps on each side, then do another wood covering them so they are all hide.

AAMP of America owns Select Products. They also own Stinger/SoundQuest. Good stuff.

Install looks sick.
