    New project: complex box or fiberglass?

    The title says it all. I'm considering a new project for my car, and can't decide between a rear loaded single bandpass folded horn enclosure (Word: Wicked One by Decware) or fiberglass door pods.

    Assume you have had no skill in either. What would you do?

    Glass because sawing gets old.

    I make rear-loaded, double crabshell, isobaric enclosures.

    I have a full woodworking space set up complete with Table / Radial Arm / Band / Skill saws, Hand / Bench grinders, 4 seperate drills, and enough SPL dust that the chipmunk in my area meter themselves every other week. *raises eyebrows*

    Still not convinced. Fiberglass is a lot more expensive than a box, and thanks to scrap material, I get 1 free every 4 boxes. =)
