:D

It's 2.5 net tuned to 32 Hz going into my hatchback. I have a Sundown Audio Saz-2500 powering it. I have a 235 amp alt coming in a week or so. I'm getting the sub polished up to put in. pics coming..

yeah, i'm getting that massaged out. going to use a syringe to get more adhesive in spots. I'm still learning vinyl wrapping. It's a birch plywood box with all baffles cut on 45s and corner braces too. There's an oak stand for the magnet to sit on.

It's the second vented box I've built. I plan on putting a black 'XXX' logo on the inside of the port.

Brace the baffle good and single is fine.
What made you go with sub and port facing same direction for the hatch?

I made a stand that the magnet sits on. i am careful to drop the sub into the top and secure it. then i roll it over to face it out the back. the solid oak block was shaped perfectly to cradle it using a big belt sander. it is glued and screwed to the bottom. I was going to add a 1" dowel shaped like a + before I put it back in. I have been using the box for a couple months now, it sounds great. I just got around to finishing it this winter. I don't want it out in the cold! So decals, touch up some paint, and that cross brace left to do.

edit: you can see the stand in the first pic, it's just kinda white in there.

I like it, if I was local I would give you some coin to make box for me because I have all the material but I don't have the time. I'll get to it tho :)

Box build pics. I was trying to make the box strong and yet as light as I can.

airspace for the port for one. it can breathe firing to the rear. I am going to get some foam to make blocks on the sides of the box to flow into the rest of the trunk. so side wouldn't work. i have a strut bar in the back that holds the box in place, so sub or port forward wouldn't work. both up wouldn't work either, i have them under my rear deck and the box slides right underneath it.

It just looks and works best this way I feel.

One of my speaker leads ended up being short so i had to rotate the sub a bit. I'll fix it later once I'm back from my trip. I still need to make some pleather lined foam pieces to fill the gaps on the side. It's coming together!
