    Different ways to finish subwoofer boxes?

    What are some different ways that you can finish subwoofer boxes besides carpet? I really don't like the look of carpet. It comes off, and when you vaccum it, it makes it look like ****.

    Fiberglass and paint, fiberglass and vinyl, carpet, leather, suede, flock but it would take alot, laminate, build out of birch plywood and stain for a woodgrain look, plexiglass, SEM spray texture to match factory colors

    Spray-on bedliner is pretty sweet, and is perfect if you need something durable.

    Not any more easily than you could, none of my current boxes have it.

    LOL we all had a good laugh about it when I got through. It goes in a 2000 Harley Davidson F-150 between the rear seats. It houses 2 Solo Baric L& 10" subs. Look really good in the truck.

    I'd actually confidently say that's not enough steps. It can take far longer to finish the enclosure than to build it if you want to do it properly with only having OTC materials.

    **** that box looks good... PM me details on the finish, we're planning on doing a lot of things in my car with a similar black finish to match my car.
