port wall put up
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/SANY1036.jpg

siliconed the inside before the top was put in for easier access
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/SANY1037.jpg

Cut out for the SE's was 14", so i got a scrap piece of plexi and did a 7" radius and drilled 2 holes one for the screw the other for the pencil
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/SANY1038.jpg

drilling a hole for the starting point i carfully cut out a circle with a jigsaw that was almost perfect
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/SANY1039.jpg

same for the 2nd hole

with the extra wood from the circle cutout i made a port corner
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/SANY1041.jpg

and finished the assembly of the box with mounting the top on
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/SANY1042.jpg

on to painting the parts of the box that may be seen
started out with useing grey primer
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/SANY1044.jpg

ran out of that quick so i moved onto black primer

Not diggin' the port at all. You should've designed it to where the port is just straight out, instead of having to hit a bend right at the end.

i dont know what a port corner does. I thought people used angles to try to keep the width of the port the same all the way through. With just a small sliver of wood there, does it even do anything?? And i agree with james, not a very good design.

edit: and not sure what woofers or what kind of power you are running, but maybe a little more bracing would be beneficial.....??

we'll see, i dont think ill have any problems with it, i didnt have where the subs were going to be so i planed it that the port woulnt hit the sub at all

but i had some free cans of undercoading/sound dedener so i lined the trunk with a few coats, idk how well that will work

and took an old blanket to wrap the spare tire, no loud vibrations from there

i was thinking about bracing, but i didnt want to do that untill one of you said something....so i rethought that
i added a peice of wood from top to bottom and ran another peice of 3/4 mdf to go between the subs
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/Image00611.jpg

and i used black undercoading to paint the parts that may sometimes be seen

That undercoating looks good on the box, I was wondering how it would look. Nice build man.

And alittle more work on the box

cut a bunch of cardboard strips to find the curve of the trunk
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/Photo-0007.jpg

http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/Photo-0006.jpg

then made a cardboard cutout of the curves on more cardboard for test fitting
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/Photo-0008.jpg

once that i got a good fit i traced onto the 1/4 MDF i picked up home depo
and cut with a jig
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/Photo-0009.jpg

need to make to pieces to have it fit in the trunk
heres the test fit in the trunk
http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c350/tippmann_guy/Photo-0010.jpg
