    starting my sub box...

    in an effort to get my trunk back i am going to glass an enclosure in passenger side of the trunk of my 97 civic coupe...i read an article on CA&E about how to use the factory trunk liner as the back of your box...just pull it out and glass it...then sand and reinforce it (basically)...

    http://www.caraudiomag.com/technical...ure/index.html

    i am going to use their game plan...seeing as how i have the same kind of trunk liner in my car...this isnt my first fiberglass project...i have done tweeter pods...two boxes and a center console...but this is my own car and is going to be a permanent install...

    i will have pics this afternoon and welcome any opinions and or suggestions...just dont be douche bags...

    I'd like to think my car sounds pretty good

    good luck, sounds like it will be pretty nice if you do it right. just take your time and be careful to make sure everything is perfect.

    Re: starting my sub box...

    never really thought about it...

    you suggest to go back to the plain dash?

    Re: starting my sub box...

    i seen people do that to minimize reflections between the dash and windshield.
