View Full Version : 07 Pontaic G5 1st real build of mine

08-24-2014, 10:44 PM
This is my 1st real build minus bull **** ones in past cars.
System details:
Dave the box guy box plans built by me.
31hz 2.5ft^3 sealed from trunk.
Sub: hdc3 custom with 12spoke and psi recone
Sub amp: DD M2b
Speakers: front: soundqubed pro comp/super tweets
rear:JBL MS-52C 5.25"
Speaker amp: rockford t400-4
Skyhigh 1/0 ofc 50ft
knukonceptz 1/0 cca 50ft
Mechman 240amp alt
NRG/homegrown battery terminals, duel1/0, 1/0 to 4ga reducer
Kinetic 1200/1800
40sq ft q-mat
Skyhigh fuses and 8ga ofc for sub
12ga cca for speaker
Smd dd1 to tune amps

I plan on doing two runs of ofc skyhigh from alt to bat along with grounds. It's a unibody so I don't have to run a ground from engine to battery so it save me a lot of wire plus bats are already in the back as it's the stock location. Also running the ofc to my subs if I have enough other wise cca for amps and extra grounds.

I plan on doing custom door panels and removing rear speakers in future along with bigger batteries And speaker amp. But I don't have the money to throw at it yet hopefully in the future! So for now I'm going with a somewhat stock look minus the trunk.
Post pictures as I progress...

I would literally be the happiest person ever seeing all that car audio equipment in my house, I'd probably work on it all night long i'd be so excited! Haha.
Goodluck with your build man!

Thanks man and I am but I work so much I have no time and half the time I'm so tired I don't wanna do it haha!
Got a lot done on the box today!

I may end up fiberglassing it now because some of the boards split. Not bad but well see.

Got my corners and bracing in along with the last of my port today.

If someone could help me out with this question I would really appreciate it!
I was think of glassing my corners but I've seen a few things before.
Can I just use the resin to strengthen and smooth my walls and port or should I glass it also!
Or just don't do either

08-27-2014, 03:30 PM
Just using resin should be fine to help strengthen and move the air easier.

08-27-2014, 08:06 PM
Sweet I picked up the resin today as I was planning on doing that route anyways but thanks for confirming it!
Didn't have time to resin box today but put on new brakes and rotor. Also going to upgrade my supention and shocks because I need new ones and with all the weight may as well get nicer ones anyways!
Should have the box resinned tomorrow night if you are following my build.

08-28-2014, 03:45 PM
Got one lay of resin on will get a second one on soon!

I plan on doing a temp set up so I can listen to it then seal it off and carpeting or vinyling the front side then making the trunk look good idk what I'm doing yet also need to make custom door panels or have someone make me them. If you know someone who does could you give me contact info to see price and how it would be done.
