    build the shell out first then come back with exactly how much space you have to work with, I'm not sure how well the zcon likes 4th orders, but that could be a nasty option if they do.

    Re: walling off a car

    You're better off waiting to get the 2nd zcon before you do your wall.

    Easiest way to do it would build a box for your two Zcons in the back seat area and just build a baffle to go around it that contours to the shape of your car that seals it up.

    The type of bracing is typically more based on your skill level with tools, what you have access to, and what the design allows for.

    You lose output by allowing the enclosure to flex. Another issue that can/will happen is that if the baffle itself flexes the sub can/will rip itself out of the enclosure entirely. You can also damage the enclosure by it cracking in various areas or seems coming apart.
