    Yep, with the bottom off it is really easy to work with. There are several ways to do it.

    how do you accurately measure the volume of a glassed box like yours.... I would think that it would be quite difficult due to the fact that it is not a "normal" shape?

    well i got the estimate from the frame dimesions.... to get the final volume you have to use packing p-nuts and fill the box and do alittle bit of calculating to get the true volume.

    Re: box build for my s10

    well i was hoping to have some updates but been waiting on my plexiglass to arrive. it will be here tuesday. so this weekend plan is to get it ready so that all that needs to be done is the plexiglass amp rack and then paint.

    How much above the box/board are you going to raise the amp on the plexi?

    figured 5 ft would really show off the amp floating. lol.




    between .5" to and 1" really not sure. have to mess around with it once the plexi gets here. then the amp will be raised from the plexi about 3/8" for the wires to run under the amp.

    Did you figure out how you wanted to mount the floating rack? So many options and they all work out pretty well haha.

    yeah going to use schedule 40 pvc pipe to make 2 spacers to send a bolt thru each one and the plexi making sure it goes through the wood on the box to attach.... then of cousre the amp will be spaced from the plexi so i can run the wires inbetween the plexi and amp
