    Re: mini cooper, wall, 2 18" mts, 6kw

    this is the 2nd wall.

    wall V1 ******.

    for those of you that didnt see in the other thread,

    i took the first one out. i really wasn't happy with it once i thought about it. this one, already with the false floor, is coming out alot better. the floor is 2 layers thick. the first layer is bolted with 1/2" x 2.5" bolts in the rear, and up front its tite bonded, and screwed to those 2x4's u see under there. the 2x4's themselves are also bolted to the body with the same bolts.

    none-the-less, its very sturdy, and not gonna budge.

    the 2nd layer is self explanatory, its to make is 100% level (to cover the bolt heads used to bolt the first layer down)

    and to clarify, the cuts i made on the rear cross-member, to get those bolts in (still cant believe i did that) will be getting welded shut by my body shop soon. just wanna throw that out there, becuase i know someones gonna comment on the pic that shows those cuts lol...

    anyways, pics-

    btw- i havent decided on subs yet. or the exact style of box. im 95% set on doing a ported clam shell, i just gotta see how much space im working with.

    cut the odd side pieces out. most of you will be confused, but im gonna get more done tomorow, and you will understand as the pictures progress, as to why its cut like it is.



    9.5* angle



    dry mock-up





    sorta what im going to do tomorow. the sides will extend out with the side trim, thats why the side pieces are cut like they are.



    one of the 18s, i may not even use this, im not sure yet

    test fit

    this may give you a better idea how the sides will be, notice they are flowing the contours of the side panels



    put the back on

    not much done today...by the time i got home from work it was 5ish, then had to go somewhere at 8 so....

    ill do this to the other side tomorow probably.

    does it sort of make more sense now as to why the sides are like that?

    just to throw this out there, i AM fiberglassing the ENTIRE interior of the box for added strength, and to ensure is 110% air tight.

    box = in for good.

    glued/screwed it down to the false floor today.

    the side panels are just sitting there, i havent put them in yet. gonna get the top piece cut before i screw those 2 window panels in. theres padding on the back as well, where it hit the window a bit.



    had a whole sheet of birch, and all i have left is the top/front/port, which wont be a whole sheet, so instead of 2x4s, i added a 2nd layer of 3/4" birch to the back, it made it very solid.

    had to 2 piece it









    hell, i like how the back is looking better than the front lol.







    also, as far as all the 90 degree angles inside the box go....im going to round them all before i fiberglass the entire interior of the box, but the box will be complete before i do so. also, i just want to test the box without glass/rounding the edges, and see how it sounds, and go from there.
