So as soon as the customer picked up the car, he drove down the road and call me 5 min later asking if I had time to take the stuff out. I was like WTF! I was shocked, thinking he didn't like it or something. Well ends up less than a mile from the shop he got rearended!

Thanks. Some day I hope to actually do this full time. But until I get back to the states it will have to be my second job, although it is my first love

Those doors came out awesome.
Newb question,but how do the subs add anything for the listeners,firing into the trunk? All I would hear is the ports coming through the package tray?

you don't hear the ports, you hear the same thing you would that you do if the driver was facing you, it is just the sound wave off the back of the sub. But there is also some of the front wave making its way to the front of the car. I am in hopes of putting it on the meter this week. I expect a decent number considering it is a looker and daily driver, not an all out comp vehicle with a fart box

In this instance they are screwed from the door panel to the pod, that way the panel tightens up to the door better. I did learn on this build that I will glass some pan head bolts into the pod next time and then bolt the pod to the door, making it real tight.


and thanks alot for the props, much appreciated

wouldnt the outside of the panel vibrate from not being screwed into anything? almost like flapping from the midbass. i love learning about fiberglass stuff as i wanna try it this summer lol

the drivers are secured to the pod is secured to the panel and the panel is secured to the door, so there is no part that is unsecured, infact if you are not careful and you warp the glass while laying it up you will have a hell of a time getting the panel on once the pod is secured to the panel because the pod is so rigid from having so many different planes/curves.

I hope that helps

Is there a divider to separate the airspace between the mids and midbass? Did you vent into the door? What is the airspace the dual midbass drive see? How many layers of glass did you use on the doors?
