This is going to be a slow process over the next few days in between other builds I have going but here it goes....It's going to be an Oak Plywood constructed enclosure with solid oak octoport and more than likely solid oak trimmings on all corners.......It will be braced internally including 45s in all corners with mdf......This is for his two ID subs......4 cubes net 30hz.....

It won't be that bad. Only 4 cubes and I am going to pull the spare tire to compensate for the added wieght. I won't be able to access the spare tire anyway with the box and amps in the trunk.

when you look into the octo port, can you see the unpainted wood on the inside? you could probably just spray a patch of wood black back there and take care of the problem. Other than that, this thing looks amazing! I can't wait to see it finished, and installed.

Wonder what they are hoping to see...

I should put some LED's behind the port. Think that would look cool?

Haven't weighed it yet but just moving it around I would say 45-50 pounds.......The main box is an OAK PLY so it's really no more heavier than my Arauco I use...
