its a visonik V815D2 (15). and that box took me hella long to get it to look like that. its textured paint, wetsanded a bunch, then about 10 layers of krylon clearcoat.

sounds pretty good, theres a couple small leaks errrr. have to silicon the inside edges mroe i guess. probly hits 120-125 dB . nothing compared to my 5 cu/ft box and ma hk1397(1600 watt) pushin that sub. hehe.

not too bad. could have used a little more TLC on the finishing filler\skim layers tho. the reflection looks kinda uneven.

but thats a minor problem. i like the flushmount. but if you needed airspace, why didnt you just glass over to the side\back further?

not the best choice of sub\amp - i cant see it pumping more than 300w outta that MTX. but not too bad looking box.

was this your first time?

req you seem kinda negative, but in a light sense, lately... Constructive critism right?

lately?

i try to point out where things can be worked on without being an *******. and i believe that is the only way for people to grow and understand that its not perfect, being constructive about somones install, and seriously pointing out what you think they can imporve without being mean is the best way to help somone.

at least thats my philosophy.

and i was just being honest. the box looks real nice, but i would have gotten a different set of equipment is all. not being negative. just not my cup of tea :)

I don't think your a jackass, this IS HOW PEOPLE LEARN. We can't have people going around thinking they have an awesome install (This does not pertain to the original post btw), when in reality they need alot of work.

+1 I would sooner have an expert let me know where I can improve things so that I do them right...it's all in the learning curve! :cool:

your fiberglass project doesnt look any better man, hehe first time? :laugh: , plus you used actual fleece with soaks up so much resin and leaves millions of tiny air holes when u actually apply the chopp matt on it. oh wait you skipped that step. :laugh: .
also i counldnt glass back any further, cant yo see the trunkarm swings in the way :crying: .ive glassed numerous projects and installed a fair share too. thanks for the critisism. someones got to do it heh :laugh:

BTW that amp will do 500 watt rms @4 ohm

im not saying it was bad, any my box worked quite well.. you see, 500w is not enough power to really need all that matte. and sanding after you resin the fleece\cloth is not nessicary step because the resin fills those ***TINY*** pits quite eaisly.

and id rather use weave than matte anyday- even if i have to layer 2 more than you. and that was my second time glassing thankyou ;) and i thought it came out really freggin well (after it was carpeted)

like i said - the equipment was not my cup of tea, and i said your enclosure was real nice.

as for the engine pic - ive not done a singe thing to the car yet besides 1 layer of deadner in the trunk - specially since i JUST got it. (being winter and all) so chill out :crazy:
