Re: Tundra DD 9515 build
I made some more progress today. I finished painting up the ports, and threw the top of the box on. I also cut the holes for the subs out with a jigsaw .
Since these subs are HEAVY, I didn't want to screw them in since they will be sitting on the face of the box, not on the top. So, I popped over to the hardware store and picked up some mounting stuff so I can run bolts instead.
Here's what I picked up, and installed. I drilled right through the double baffle for the bolts, then I countersunk from the inside so the nuts would pull into the wood. I also coated them with JB Weld so they are not going anywhere.
I also did some bracing in the box today. I went out and picked up some threaded rod, and some 1" wooden dowels. I threw the wooden dowels in to help brace the top and bottom of the box, and the two threaded rods will brace the rear of the enclosure, basically about 1/3 of the width apart from each other. The threaded rods are only in there for the photos because I will have to remove them in order to carpet the enclosure, then install them properly.
I will also be adding a 2" wide steel plate to the inside of the rear wall, about 20" long on each side. The threaded rod will go through this plate as well. The plate is being installed as a backer for some trailer tie downs that I will install on the outside of the rear (you won't see them when the enclosure is installed), but it will allow me to use ratchet straps to tie down the enclosure to the rear seat mounts. Bolted through the 2" plate on the inside, it will have tons of strength in case of an accident.
