    Re: walling off a car

    bracing can be anything from wood to steel, just get your design down and look for what could be weak points, (big flat panels with no support) and brace it. its a pretty simple concept.

    You could build something to cradle the motor if you're worried about it putting too much stress on the front wall. But minimum double baffle for the front especially with a sub that size.

    Re: walling off a car

    Atleast1 1/2" thick front wall. I use all thread a lot with some big washers and nuts. Either that or cut up some 2"x2" pieces of wood.

    Re: walling off a car

    I just dont think its necessary. The more bracing you have, the less space you have.
