It's been about a year since I have posted any new builds, so I am glad to say I finally finished another one!! Yay!!! Here it is!

NOTE: I am finally walking with a cane so I am able to make better cuts and have better accuracy and can do a little something fancy if I want. All of the enclosure was done with a palm sander, drill and jigsaw and handsaw. Nothing else. This is for those that believe you can't do a build with minimal tools and make it amazing, You Can!!! Just take your time.

It took me about a month to finish. I would work, let my body recover for a couple days, and start again.

Thanks to Jason at Mobile Enclosures for the design!

Here we go!!


Had to start funny, It's a **** lol

The rear of the port, already painted:

Both ports and sides were the same size and looked the same:

I plan on doing this again when I get my health back up. It was fun, and I didn't realize how proud it made me to finish it. It's something I hope all you will do too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It feels good to do some good work! It took a long time, but your right, help is a blessing!!

Thanks! He has HID's up front , but I really want to see something like blacking out the tail lights. It would really blend in nicely.


nice work..

Thanks!


Impressive box building skills.

I have my moments! Thanks!


Looks great man! excellent work!

Thanks! I think I may have to start something new in my own vehicle, lol. The subs I built the box for are my old subs. I miss them. People knock the power series subs, but a 60 lb 15" sub can't be bad, lol.

It's always good to hear you in my build logs!! I hope to get another one started and finished, but hopefully it won't take a year to do it, lol


Are those T1 or T2?

They are the T1 's . Most people don't know there is not much of a difference between the T1 and T2. The main difference is the cone material in the T2 is reinforced with plastic instead of pressed paper. So it's a little lighter and stiffer than the T1. Both have 3" coils and have the same motor structure. They are being run off a Hifonics Collosus 3200 right now. I told him to stick with that. Any more power and there will be a chance off frying them. He could run both of them forever on 3200 unclipped watts, lol

Thanks, you should see the inside. It's a very well planned out ride. It just needed an awesome enclosure to top it off!!

How'd the set up work with the subs up and port back in the trunk?

Looks sweet!

Thanks! It worked out too well, lol. I have to go and redo much of his interior. He called me last night and a lot of the supports have given way and can't keep up with how violent it gets in the cab. Luckily I have worked on these old Capri's and can reinforce them pretty easily.
