Ive built literally 45 normal, plain boxes over the past 2 months i havent posted anything on here. its been getting kinda boring. so i had to express the creativity.....

The car: 1998 Firebird
The sub: 12" Fi SSD (one i sold from my yukon)
The Amps: 2x Kenwood KAC-8105D
The Wire: Knu Konceptz 4awg KLMX
Batts (soon to be Kinetik HC600)

The car acually came to me in hopes of getting just a normal carpeted box. But i talked him into letting me go nuts becasue if i was going to be doin all the angles gettin that thing down in the well i mtie as well make it fancy. Also he is a member of a major car club in central IL, so id be gettin alot of exposure.

So here we go.

here is the angle of the box. i decided on a sealed box just for cosmetic reasons. around 2 cubes. with the gloss red formica layed out it gives the hard 45 degree angles a rounded look. almost like it was kerfed haha.

Here is the basic shell. the sides are standard white formica so switch it up a little bit.

Yeah I think youtube is kinda specific about the format the video is in.....or maybe they were just having issues.

I felt privileged to see the pics before they were on CA, lol

If you are using Firefox, try using IE. Seems like since about release 3.5.6 fB has been a bit buggy. Mine has been fine lately but I know fB chat used to mess up all the time and actually lock the whole browser window some.

nice i might have to give that a try. I love that floating look! Might be my chance to do some upholstery on the inside and be able to show it off. What did you use to cut it? jigsaw? if so, what type of blade?

haha i guess thats about the best compliment you can get!

A full plexi cube would just look sick! I think sealing it would be a royal PITA, but **** would it be hot

*edit - wow the parental controls are stiff on here haha*

anything will cut it just go slow. a sharp router blade looks best. if its been used alot it may start to melt the plexi a lil bit and look liek crap

ive seen it done. NUDO products here in springfield is a Major global composite and plastic panel manufacturer and i was good friends with them and took a tour of one of the warehouses... they had a 5 sided acrylic cube. the top was a composite panel.
