    Re: 1999 Silverado Alpine Build

    Got a lot done today, the carpentry aspect of the box is complete, it just needs to be glued together. I will have it all glued up tomorrow and hopefully will get to hear it on Wednesday!
    Cut out the holes for the sub, test fitting:

    Checking the mounting depth, the sub clears just barely.

    Since, there is a pole-vent in the magnet I need some more room, or I just took a precaution and gave it some more room to breath:

    It has about an 1.5" behind the magnet, I think it will suffice, it will have to regardless. I got everything wired in to mount, and to check the excursion, I was concerned about the space I had between the subs and the floor.

    Since my concern became a reality, I decided that I was going to raise the box some, so I tacked on 1/2" birch on the bottom. It's kinda hard to see in this picture, but you still can see, the birch is a lighter color.

    Now I test fitted it one more time, and the see latches down, which is great! However since it was putting a lot of pressure on the bottom of the seat I raised it a 1/2" with some birch. I don't think the birch compromises the structural integrity of the seat, but the nuts for the seat had less bolt to grab onto as a result. I'm not sure if it is a problem with the 1/2" riser, the nuts did sink down quite far onto the bolts. I think I will run a router along the mounting depth risers and sand them down some to try to make it an easier fit on the seat.

    Box is all glued up, I spent all day working on it. I ended up using liquid nails because I thought it would work best to fill any gaps.







    I went a little overkill with the caulking, but I figured I couldn't it wouldn't hurt to have a lot. I wanted to make sure every hole and space was filled, so i went all out. It doesn't look so pretty on the outside, but it will be carpeted.

    Was able to finish up with the box today, minus the carpeting.



    If you are wondering what the white spots are, they are just filler I used to fill some of the screw holes I pilot drilled too deep.
    Getting it wired so I could throw it in the truck

    Time for subwoofer #2

    All wired up and screwed together

    Re: 1999 Silverado Alpine Build

    Thanks guys! I'm pretty pleased with the way it sounds, it's very loud, a lot louder than I thought it would be with a sealed enclosure. I have some tinkering to do though, it doesn't sound very good listening to rock so hopefully I can do some tuning and make it sound a little better. I'm very pleased with the pdx, its very efficient. I don't have the big 3, nor do I have an extra battery or upgraded alternator, yet the lights don't dim and the volts are able to remain at a or very close to 14 when the subs are hitting.

    Re: 1999 Silverado Alpine Build

    That is a good question, I never actually calculated it out. I feel like it would be a real pain to calculate it since its not square and there are a lot of angles, but from my guess I think I made it out to like 2.4cubes total... maybe a little less

    Looks better than the first time I put my stuff all together...granted my friend helped me and he likes to guess on ALOT of stuff. "Don't worry about it, it'll be fine" are his famous words.

    Funny thing is we were mounting a PA speaker under my hood and he said those exact words before he accidentally drilled through my battery

    Man, for your 1st install, this is coming out stellar! Box looks legit, granted those R's would sound so much better ported and everything else came out real good for being on a budget!

    Truck looks amazing as well. Read from the 1st post on. Kudos man, I wish I had that amount of skill/patience on my 1st build. This almost makes me want to get back into redoing my system.

    When you have no time due to job and kids and trying to stay fit, hard to get the passion for it, lol! This has inspired me, now to either get fat again or pwn off a kid.....

    Thanks!, and yeah I've been told the r's love the ported boxes, if only I had the room. To be honest though, in my box now they are ridiculously loud IMO. I was very surprised to hear them be as loud as they are in a sealed enclosure. They are on the border of being too loud for just normal music. I totally know what you mean, it's hard to manage hobbies with life, I wouldn't have been able to do this if it were during school. I appreciate the compliments and thank you for checking out the build, hope you enjoyed watching it come along. Stay tuned though I still have some updates, redoing some wiring and carpeting the box! I will also try to get a video up soon
