using 6 braces altogether the threaded rod is so much easier than wooden bracing and takes up way less air space.

That's sick and 6 of those subs man I'd love to hear that I used to have a couple of them that were blown I wanted to get made custom hefty as hell I ended up selling them though.

Box looks sick too.

Great choice of subs, but why the 4" ports? I'd expect a port noise and compression. I'd go with three 6" aeros instead if I were you...

4 of them @ 6 inches tunes me @ 35.5 hz and I have 0 port noise super clean sounding . Now need to get my cam back from friend who borrowed it so I can take some more pics and show box installed and wired up then rip it out and paint or cover the box for perm install. Have a test video

Other reason I didnt go with 6 inch is I already had the 4 inch from previous and you can't get the 6in in dimpled

Just put a pair of JBL GTO 5.25 Mid-Bass in what was the lid of my center console.
