One of my friends came to me and said a kid he knew had his system done in his camaro by a local shop and that they had done a crappy job and everything was falling apart. when i first saw it i noticed that they didnt even build down into the well in the back and jsu thad a flat box layin on top. it was such a wast of space and the memphis subs that were in it sounded horrible in a sealed box. the look of the box wasnt to bad with the blue plexi but just the way it was put together was poor. i have had alot of competition in the past with the shop that did it so being that the kid came to me to redo it, i wanted to overdo it haha... here it it...

box structure built.. i acually ended up with 3 cubic ft before displacment. i built up 3/4" around the edge and rabbited out the edge to stable fleece to. the top is a 3/4" base with a 1/2" recess.

i made a plaque of my logo by getting a reverse decal made, and using that to paint it onto the back of some 1/4" plexi. then i frosted the logo so that the LEDS wouldnt be visable and it would jsut give it more of a glow. then i buffed it all out.

it gets alot of looks and it sounds great to. i wish i had a better camera to take a night picture of the LEDS though.
