    ha, thanks. This entire thing is all learning for me. I'm loving it.

    The pyle tweets sound decent. They maintain good composure even when playing very loud, which is pretty much what I was looking for. The entire back deck exists just to get loud when I need to, and it definitely does that. I've been driving around campus blasting rammstein and metallica and i'm turning heads all over the place, lol.

    alright ya jackwagons, quick update. I've actually been busting my six on this but i've been too lazy/busy to post updates.



    painted the MDF pieces that will sit on the bottom of the trunk, just to seal them up a little since MDF does not like to get wet.



    ran wires in their final locations.



    beefed up my molds in a big way.



    getting molds glassed into the car. At this point the "box" has 3 sides - front, back, and left side.



    the right side doesn't quite fit, i need to trim it a little, so it will hopefully go in tomorrow.





    hopefully more to come, I have thursday off from school so some good work should get done.

    only good use i've ever found for scissor jacks. Using them to bend MDF. I've almost got a 3 sided box at this point, working hard to get this thing knocked off asap. more updates soon, I hope.

    Build looks good. How will the ports fit in, since the baffle slants?

    not easily, lol. Basically i made ( or should have made) the holes bigger than they needed to be so I could fit the port tubes in at an angle, then fill in the gaps with glass and PL.

    Re: martian's 2001 buick build log

    more stuff done:



    inside top is done, i sealed that little hole you see in the picture today I hope you can understand why it's taking me so long to piece this thing together. I've done some pretty detailed volume estimations tho and after everything I should have 11.1 cubes net in the box, so figure after ports and drivers around 10 cubes, which was my goal. w00t!!



    mocking up the frame for the back

    frame is in, and three top pieces as well.



    just need to fill in the spots where the trunk supports go and i'm good for the top!! And then on to fiberglassing and bracing the living crap out of everything, woohoo!!

    also, i've determined that the batteries will not fit where I originally intended for them to go. Thus, they will sit on the left side of the trunk and all the amps and stuff will hopefully mount on the right side.

    Lots of good weather in the near future here so stay tuned for more updates!! I hope to be bumping tunes by tuesday, altho i doubt i'll have the extra battery wired in yet.

    showing my mad (lack of) glassing skills here:


    glassing the seems too:


    started working on the box over the spare tire well:


    realistically, i probably won't be bumping tunes until next sunday. There's just too much left to be done. Wiring, etc etc etc. Hopefully i'll at least have the box done by friday. Would be nice.

    plenty of progress lately, hopefully something worth taking pictures of after tomorrow. I'm also having issues with my air leveling shocks in the rear, so if anybody knows anything about that stuff please PM me.

    for the ports you can just get some 22 degree angled pipe fittings...

    Good stuff. Will the fiberglass by itself be durable or pressed up against the trunk enough to not resonate, or will you further brace the entire enclosure? I have never really worked with glass so I am unfamiliar with how rigid it gets and how you could got about bracing it, threaded rods and bolts maybe? Eleven cubes also seems large to have a major portion of the enclosure made out of glass.
