    oh very nice....lol..... anychance you forgot the glue it too....lol..... to bad ya couldnt just take it apart and build it into the trunk...... thats one reason ive always went lookin for a cardboard box about the same size and see if itll pop in.... that and its alot lighter to play with....

    Had a prefab with my amp and cap mounted to the back. Went to put it in the girlfriend's trunk (Saturn Ion), and had both the amp AND the cap get caught on the "emergency release" knobs at the top of the trunk.

    When in doubt, cardboard mockups are your friend.

    I made a custom fit box for a trunk car a couple months ago. just fit in the opening went to close the trunk lid and the arms hit box was about 3/4" too wide

    Re: New box...hhummmm

    i had that problem on my third box i built it was 2 inches to deep and about 3 inches too tall and i got it in but it was a pain in the *** an because the subs was mounted on top made it that much harder and ended up tearing the surround on the sub. the sub still pounds but the box is not in my trunk no more cause its not for 12s but for 15's too much airspace.

    but yea always use card board lucky for me where i work we are abundant in that and its always laying around somewhere .
