I finally talked my best friend into a false floor in his 2006 Subaru. I had to work with all of the equipment that he already had, 2 Power acoustic FUBR 10's, which acually are really well built and can take a beating, a sony xplod amp, that has been through atleast 7 of our cars over the years, and some bulk wiring i had laying around. he also wanted the JVC EXAD double din that fit perfectly in the dash and looked great. becasue of the wear and tear on the amp i decided it would be better to take off the cover and just expose the guts and use som eplexi over it. here are the pics.. and sorry ahead of time there is sort of a gap in the install pics where i didnt have a camera.
becasue of the odd shape of the well and the space i needed, instead of fiberglassing i made the bottom piece and cut 4" peices of mdf and glued and clamped them together in a circular shape kinda liek they make bongo drums. after that dried i stregthed it all up with reinforced filler.
next came the big headache. becasue of the way the tire well was built in the car, the subs would not fit in the middle of the floor and becasue to have the port the way i wanted. so i had to stagger them, and the way my friend is he kinda likes stuff crooked anyway so we decided to do the same with the amp.
i ended up with about 2 cubic feet of volume. it was on the small side especially after the 4" areo went in. i used a 4" elbow in order to get port length.
the top piece is 1/2" mdf. the cutout areas will have plexi under it that will have the back painted pewter just liek the 2 tone color of the car. then i will put green leds firing into the plexi to make it all glow.
the subs had been sitting around for awhile and the surround was discolored and it looked liek garbage lol. so i took some SEM vinyl paint and made her brand new.
i also had ALOT of problems surprisingly with bracing. those 10's do some justice and i had alot of flex. 4 2x4's did the trick lol.
