    I've heard that the Lowe's MDF is altered by the Illuminati to decrease your ouput by around 6 db. If it were me, I'd go to Home Depot for the MDF. Just telling you, if I wind up dead you will know why...

    Escorts look better than they used to by the way. I can honestly say I owe my life to a '94 Escort, seatbelt broke, I went through the steering wheel and dashboard... but the motor fell out just like it was supposed to and I landed in an empty engine compartment instead of eating a 4 cyl. I still got some burns and ****... but I'm still alive.

    Re: 1999 Ford Escort (first) sub box build

    I'm anxiously watching this build. Keep posting pics. My first car audio system was a '91 Ford Escort. The system evolved over time. But at it's peak the system consisted of four Autotek 12s, a Rodek 2300i, Autotek 7100BTS, Pioneer components, 12 disk pioneer changer setup. Remember this was the heyday when Autotek did not ****. This system hammered hard. If I find some pics of it I will post.

    I finished all panels that will be jointed together and glued
    I hope the new subs come , I need to know the diameter to cut .
    Here a better web site that explains the kreg joint process

    thank you
