    What it comes down to. Listen to suggestions and be open minded.

    Continue with your build, and prove us wrong.

    It's not the 100% best way to do it, nor is it "our" way of doing it, but as long as it does it's job and holds up to your standards, go for it. Just keep us updated.

    Re: 8 12"s VS Grand Am

    what i did was block off all of the area to be used, then i filled the whole area with packing peanuts, to get my volume i just removed the packing peanuts and counted how many cubic feet i used. its not an exact form of volume measure.... but close enough

    Re: 8 12"s VS Grand Am

    I'm not going to say it couldnt work. Hell if you can build a whole huge enclosure from fiberglass, why couldnt you make a few corners with it...? But in this case, I dont think it was needed. It looks like you were just cutting corners and not thinking this through.. The worst that can happen is that you'll have to redo it all so if you're confident with it..go right ahead sir. Let us know how it turns out.

    Re: 8 12"s VS Grand Am

    the subs are hifonics hfid412's they were sponsored
    the amps are ultra linear ul1602's they were also sponsored

    so its a pretty cheap setup....but 6 of them hit a 147.5 legal on the tl in a sealed box in my trunk (no rear seat) so it will be reasonably loud

    I'd make some cardboard templates of MDF pieces that should be used in the corners.

    Re: 8 12"s VS Grand Am

    I have always screwed mine in, but I am sure others have just glued them in. Your box is going to flex, so maybe some other people could help with that. Mine was screwed in for my 2 kove Armagedon U-2 subs, bracing out the *** and a long *** port. Can't remember specifics as I had a lot of help with that wall.
