That's the extent of my progress for today. Not much left. Still need to cut sub/port holes , screw on the back, silicone the inside edges, and sand it. Not sure how or if I will cover the enclosure. Going to give it a good listen before I drop money into carpet/paint. If I do anything it will most likely be carpet. I will try to get some pics of the subs tomorrow too.
Not any real progress but a few pics for ya.............
Spooney's perfect circle jig:
Hard to see but there is a cut line in there somewhere:

Port holes cut out:
Sub hole cut out :
Test fitting the sub and ports :
Throwing a little brace in between the ports. Pre drilling it here :
And glued and screwed :
Blurry pic of the revamped bracing for the back of the enclosure:
Probably going to add a brace top to bottom as well at some point. Waiting for the glue to dry a little before I put the back on and sand it up. Hoping to be done today minus the covering which I think will be boring old carpet
Looks good! Why are you running the SA the majority of the time though? I'd be running that JBL all day everyday! SQL goodness....
Back panel pre drilled:
Laying down some glue:
Screwed down :
Sanded as much as I care to sand it. Will be carpeted in the end. Still looks ok though I think:
Just need to let it dry a bit and throw the ports and the sub in and let it rip. No terminal cup on hand at the moment so I think I will go ghetto style and run the wire out of the port until I get some carpet and a terminal around. All in all i'm happy with how the construction went. Just hoping she sounds as good as it looks.
mad ninja skills sir

Both ports in the box with ghetto wire coming out:
Feeling a little saucy tonight.........JBL GTi15 is getting the first shot:
Sub mounted and enclosure in the car:
Too **** late to give it a listen other than at low volume . I'm liking what I heard though even with the volume down. Hoping to turn it loose first thing in the morning. If she sounds good which I'm sure it will I am going to order carpet tomorrow. I can always adjust the ports a bit too if I need to fine tune it some.
Looking at my own pics I am already thinking of altering the box a bit. If I can decide on what sub is going to stay in the box I may add a second baffle and flush mount the sub.
Just gave it a quick full tilt listen and it sounds fantastic! Its hitting all the notes I was hoping for. Gotta get some carpet ordered up now. JBL is sounding **** good in its old age.
