    Looking good!!!

    Glad you did all thread as that 7ply birch is very soft/flexible. Might want to add some 2x4 bracing on the outside if you have room.

    Also you used literally 3x the screws you needed to use LOL Every 4-6" is all that is needed....

    I wanted to use some good ***** but couldn't find any, anywhere but I **** sure wasn't gonna use MDF.. Too much weight. I figured 3 5/8 all thread should be sufficient.

    Any you think I should still do 2x4s on the sides even though it's double layered everywhere?

    And I know I know, I've always been like that on any box over 2k. I know the glue is what holds it together but it make me feel better about it with more screws. Especially since I'm running 8k+rms

    If any of the panels have spans of 16" or longer with no bracing then yes I'd do 2x4's. Even doubled up the 7ply isn't that strong.

    You must buy 10# buckets of screws lol

    Awesome man. I saw the purple my friend had and just knew that's what I wanted, the techflex and other things I have match it perfectly.

    Looks awesome. Youll be loud for sure. Buddy had same car with 2 lvl5 15's on a dc 7.5k. He hit a 156 with one bad sub (spider wasnt glued properly on one). Setup moved a ton of air.

    Re: Civic hatch wall build, 8k rms

    my life saver on the alt install, might i add that it took about 50 man hours of mine to get it perfect.. had toTAKE THE FUVCKING MOTOR OFF THE MOUNTS JUST TO DROP THE ALT IN it ******... buuuuut i charge at 14.3 and my voltage is on point so whatever, im over it and done with it, glad everythings working good so far without any hiccups

    the comparsion, this alt is technically for an accord, only way i could shoehorn 270 charging amps of power down in this bi*ch


    putting purple techflex over the wire so its all clean and purdy


    this was day 2 when i finally got it down into where it needed to be to mount it, lol


    subsss

    next to a SA-12




    beginning of notching the frame to clear the pulley on the alt, spent about 4 hours doing this, carefully measuring so that i cut as little as possible considering the car is a unibody and i was cutting the only structural support the car really has lol


    ---------- Post added at 03:11 AM ---------- Previous post was at 03:10 AM ----------

    it was 3 layers thick believe it of not


    notched


    more light


    chopped the alt bracket down so that the new alt would fit and tension properly


    had to destroy the thing dammn near



    more a$$
