Ok , lets start with the basics


Vehicle :2002 Ford Focus SE
Subs : 2 Audio Technix 18" Subwoofers
Intent: Do a 150 or better at 35hz at the headrest .
Now for the Pics :

I did some initial measurements for the entire volume I could use without a complex box. After Wood displacement I had 22 cubic feet of internal volume .

After finding my measurements, i went into Google Sketchup to mock up some ideas.Until I had a final idea of what i wanted to do


So before I started building I needed some much needed upgraded wiring . ( 6 25 Foot Rolls of Audiopipe 0 Gauge CCA) 4 Runs 2 Positive, 2 Grounds
