    Rich, that looks amazing. And you finally got the mille. thats sweet. i definitely need to come down now. but did i sway you into using the threaded inserts? and how u like them? they just seem great to me. i need to get a job here and save up so we can deaden the truck cuz it sounds like crap atm. could use some body work or foam to fill in the holes in the qtr panels but ill have to wait to see how they do. excellent work. now convince my mom to upgrade the stereo in the new journey and itd be a perfect day. lol that car seems built to be turned into a SQ vehicle.

    they are still holding up great on the sub too after half a year. think you'll use the inserts over tnuts now or still use tnuts?

    on large subs i will continue to use T-nuts sandwiched between layers of MDF. the inserts will fail in an accident.

    your seat should keep it from hitting you in the head. i do try to take forces from an accident into consideration.

    also from a theft standpoint, i could pry the inserts out.

    just talk to your insurance agent, show them build log photos, and get something written that agrees upon the installed equipment that is covered. anything not bolted/screwed in place is not covered. that means you need to add bolts and brackets to your box.

    Dang. I'd gladly add bolts to the box but I'd rebuild it if I was gonna pull everything out. Do it right this time. No rachet straps...

    we can bolt through the floor if we drop the gas tank...

    i'm sure we can figure out a few places.

    Re: 2001 Accord EX Sedan - it's long

    *UPDATE*

    I sought the insight of a professional, and he gave me a plan for a trunk worthy of my effort and equipment. big changes and a re-redo of the entire trunk is upcoming. i put my stubborn desire to maintain flexibility aside and let the system take a finished approach.

    I also just picked up a Hertz Mille sub, ML3000. The result should be the best I can possibly do with the best equipment i can get.

    I think I really need to do this to my 08 GMC Sierra. I am fighting bad noise out of my door speakers. My question to you is, my outer door skin is smooth, no bars. How would you hold the insulation bag to the outer skin. I thought maybe I could make several small ones and just tape them. BUT I would hate to have them come loose in the door. This insulation idea really got my attention. Just not sure how to do it right.

    the bars just limit the size of the bags. if it were flat i may have orientated the bags vertically. i use aluminum foil tape (true duct tape) as it is designed to stick to metal and hold over the years. i also use it to protect the plastic bag around moving parts.


    another idea is to get rigid compressed fiberglass panels (like for ceiling panels and acoustical treatments) from hardware stores which could be cut and glued or taped without the loose bag. i've seem them with a covering or plain/bare.
    Armstrong Pebble Square Lay In Unperforated Fiberglass Tile at Menards

    tiles like this would need to be cut into pieces that can fit into the door, but could span a longer length without concerns of sagging and the plastic could be attached with a spray adhesive.

    on one vehicle we did have the window mechanism snag the bag and tear it down. i had to remove it from the speaker hole.
