    Different style box build for my buddy

    I'm "helping" my buddy with his box, even tho we are using most of my tools and my garage and electricity but o well. He's got a ~96 Buick Century that is literally falling apart from the system AND accidents...

    He doesn't listen to me when he buys his equipment, so he bought a SPL 5500D amp, that supposedly puts out 3200rms @ 1 (4 awg power/ground) and he bought two SPL SPLW15"s that are.. well... they dont sound that good.

    Here is a pic of his last box that i built, 5.0cf tuned to 30hz, was originally for his Type R 12"s (which were loud as **** in it, he should of kept them)... its kinda small for the 15"s



    and here are some of the build were doing now, it will be right around 10 cubes ported probably using 4 4" PVC ports. The subs will be firing into the cabin. apparently he doesnt want the back seat at all anymore, but i have other ideas, pics will follow when that happens...

    This box will be built in two parts to fit better in the trunk, they will be siliconed and bolted together when he puts both boxes in the trunk. only leaving about 2 - 3" of MDF on the inside for the bolts/silicone to connect the boxes.

    back half of new box:

    plexi for the back part of box

    this is the cut through that will go into the front half of box:





    painted with something similar to Killz to prime and seal:







    the plexi will be bolted on the inside of the MDF with probably neons or some ***** in it... it originally came from a sh!tty band-pass box that he had.

    rough cuts for now, i tried to sand them down after he made it look like a wave with the jig saw... but its his not mine, i would have to make mine almost perfect. it should come out well though.


    let me know what you think / or suggestions, i have only built a hand full of boxes myself, this is his second or third box, so we are not pro's

    yeah... this car sounds like hell coming down the road, straight pipe with only a cherry bomb (basically a straight pipe) all the way to the back. loud as hell.

    this is a guy coming from imports that thinks crooked exhaust tips are teh coolness.

    Re: Different style box build for my buddy

    Seems like kind of a waste to lose your backseats in a "luxury" car for only 10 cubes.... and he wont even have a trunk anymore..... if I was going that far, I would have spent an extra couple hundred and bought some quality equipment to atleast make it worth while to lose all that space

    build quality looks nice though, good job on that

    Re: Different style box build for my buddy

    well, when the SPL's sound like *****, i'll convince him to buy something better, after all this work in this box... it will NOT go to waste. I have ideas for the backseat, it should come out pretty well. Got a little more done tonight, heres some pics:







    here is one of the SPL's:

    Re: Different style box build for my buddy

    Once the box is done, i want to make a trim panel that covers the front of the box and goes all the way across the back of the car like the original seat... and maybe put padding on the panel and cover it like a seat. but it will have two subs cut out in the middle.. kinda make it look stock but with the sub cut outs. we will probably use the stock rear deck cover for the upper part.

    one question.. does anyone have any advise for port placement? I'm wanting to put all four 4" ports firing straight up through the back dash towards the back window (through the stock 6x9 holes already there. will this sound OK?
