    Help me design door pods.

    So basically I am gonna do my best to imitate the Mercedes mid bass pods.
    Mercedes Midbass Enclosures - Car Audio | DiyMobileAudio.com | Car Stereo Forum

    Im kinda looking at where i want to cut and what would easiest to wrap with Vinyl(because im terrible at finishing fiberglass aesthetically).



    Thats the inside of the door.

    Couple ideas im coming up with. With the first two pics. Im pretty sure id have enough room for an 8''. In the last 2, i feel like there is enough room for a 10''. Were talking fully sealed.

    I just did these on an 08 Avalanche. The midbass is fully sealed up utilizing the whole door cavity. All made with layers of mdf and ccf to seal it up. I used sheet metal to fill the large open door panel areas lined with deadener and screwed down so you can still access the power motor if needed. Finished the pods off with 4 way stretch vinyl.

    Nice work. Not restricted to a truck.

    Wrong person quoted on the Avalanche.
