there she is! what do yall think?...wasnt 2 hard...sounds alot better than the prefab box. you see the pair of 6x9s? i was thinking to make a bracket that goes inbetween the two subs and holds the 6x9 box a lil over the seats...would that make the subs sound diff? or any other problems with doing this?

Looks solid, if the particle board holds.

It shouldn't make the subs sound different, I wouldn't think.

how do you flex it? cause this stuff is very stiff

theres quite a bit of pressure in a box when a sub is moving, now that i think of it i wonder exactly what it is?

anyways maybe some internal bracing with dowels or somthing, should stiffen it right up

Yes the pressure inside will cause the enclosure to flex. Plywood will flex more than high density particle boare (nova ply) or MDF ;)

HDPB(nova ply) has the same strength of MDF but swells if water comes in contact with it.

MDF has same strength as hdpb and wont swell ;)

man....two chevys both with at least 200,000 miles on each and still running strong. Biggest mechanic cost I think was $400 or so.

of course ive never owned a ford so i have a bias, but in my experience, chevy has been a good brand.

Why did you use plywood instead of mdf? other than that looks good.

Get threaded steel rods from home depot. Great for bracing.

All i know is that Ford Taurus' are fukn horrible. I mean ford isnt too strong on the cars except for the mustang.

MDF sure will swell as it takes on water. It will need a considerable amount, but it will swell. You pretty much have to soak it for a couple days.

GM does it righ most of the time. I know my car was built right, it's 24 years old and is holding up better than my my brother's 95 honda.

i dunno bout that. Most GMs I have encountered lately are fukn retarded. Like my cav is kinda dumb. They try to make them as if you will never modify anything.

The key word there is cavilear. And like I said, they do it right most of the time.

those statistics are pretty tricky then. Say that GM instead of a single branch of GM is one of the best. Do you know how many different cars GM makes? Of course its gonna look good if all the bad ones are left out.

The only chevy worth buying is a c10 with a carbed 350. Don't even get me started on GM engineering. On new fords, 9/10 its an egr valve. On a chevy 9/10, its the alt, fuel pump, wiring, ignition coils or the side post batteries.

hmm I've owned a blazer, caprice classic, and corsica and Ive changed 1 alternator out of the 3 cars, alot if wiring changes cause i put systems in em, batteries every 2 years LOL. I owned a ford escort (clutch kept ****ing up, wiring ******, tranny blew twice) and a Taurus (blown motor @ 90k miles, friggin drivers seat broke while driving down the street, 4 starters) I'll stick with my chevys

90 camaro rs, 180,000 still doesn't leak oil......69 chevy farm truck 396, still runnin strong, 87 silverado 160,000 still runnin fine. Although my grandpa did have 2 1980's f150's with over 300,000 on 'em and they still ran like new when he sold them......
