    Reddish Neck's Budget Build

    Here's my car audio build. Working with a college student's budget so theres no "high end" equiptment, just two Kicker Comp 10's (10C104) powered by a Infinity 311a Amplifier. The box was designed by Buck specifically for my subwoofers: http://s640.photobucket.com/albums/u...10soverall.png


    These are all the peices to make the enclosure (excluding port baffles).


    All the sides but the front assembled.


    The port baffles installed.


    The cut lines for the port on the face of the box.

    I used a product called seamer mate on mine. We use it in a/c for roof penetrations and cooling towers to seal the basins. A little more expensive but has worked good on my l7 s where I blew a cualked prefab box apart. Only downfall is the smell until it fully cures. Caulk is prob just as good in your application I just wanted something a little more long term.
