    EXTERIOR DESIGN SUGGESTIONS - Custom 3 15" ported enclosure

    Ok, i've had this box done for quite a while, it's custom built for my 97 Chevy Sierra. I primed it to protect the wood while it was sitting in my garage, but now I'm ready to finish it. Here's a few pics along with the enclosure's measurements:











    61" LENGTH
    19" HIGHT
    23" HIGHT (SLANT)
    7.5" WIDTH (TOP)
    21.5" WIDTH (BOTTOM)

    24" PORT LENGTH
    4.5" PORT HIGHT

    the exact cu. feet is 9.7ft cubed


    I originally wanted to carpet the box, but if there are any other possibilities, like fiberglass, etc. i want to know my options. So judging by the pics, what do you guys think i should do from here?

    thanks-
    cade
