    yes! there is one avaiable on another forum (fiberglass forums?)... I will get the address for you and post here in a minute

    Edit: http://fiberglassforums.com/showthre...=9725#post9725

    it is kind of a wheel well install... not typical like in a trunked car...but it gives you a good idea how he did it and got the ports to work.

    Good Luck!

    Re: spare tire ported?

    well, the orion 10d manual calls for 1.4 cu.ft with 3" diameter by 12"long port. i was trying to figure out how to mount port in box using spare tire well enclosure but now im not sure if im going that route. anyway it also says not to use an amp that doesnt have INTELLIQ built in with the orion subs. does anybody else run these subs with different amps also? thanks

    that just seems F^ up to say they wont cover the sub under warranty if you dont use an amp with intelliq built in. im just going to go ahead and put my kx1200 on it at 1 ohm and if it blows oh well.
    also, do i need to use the subsonic filter on this sub?

    Can't say I've ever blown a speaker... and I'm not using this magical INTELLIQ you speak of...


    Back to your original question, yes many people have made either ported or sealed fiberglass enclosures in the place of the factory spare tire. It seems though that based on your initial lack of knowledge with fiberglass that you might consider a slightly simpler means of enclosure construction (such as wood) for your first project and then move on to fiberglass down the road. When you decide to though the process will be something like this:
    Remove carpet
    Put tape over entire area where you will take the fiberglass mold
    Spray glue tin foil to tape (optional)
    Lay down fiberglass resin and mat
    Cut out top plate from 3/8" MDF and fiberglass onto now removed mold
    Router out mounting circle for speaker
    Cut out a spot for the port, and attach port.

    Happy glassin!

    Re: spare tire ported?

    i have already built one fiberglass spare tire enclosure for 2 jl 10w3's but ended up selling that and getting 2 l7 kicker 15's and walling off my civic. then it was totalled and now looking to build another spare tire box. but i wanted a ported 1 this time. i just dont understand how to mount a 3" x 12" long port in well. and im not that great on figuring out ports.
    so im just going to build a regular ported box. thanks for help anyway
