Took some time reading about it, watched build logs but still would welcome any suggestions.
Final design isn't set in stone yet but I would like to mold a pair of 12's around the wheel wells in my trunk, blending a slot ported mdf kerfed with a fiberglass volume maximizing shape on the sides.
Is there any way to really accurately measure the volume? box it out a little, seal and measure with water?
What final thickness will the fiberglass need to be at to tolerate subwoofer abuse (600-1000rms subs)?
How does the very odd shape of the volume inside the box affect the sound waves and performance of the subwoofer?
Finally, when I'm finished with the basic structure of the box will I be able to add a single layer of carbon fiber to really make it shine? I would like to lexan window the back of the boxes and have the inside carbon where needed, mirror where not with some LED lighting.
I think looking at a kerfed port from inside the box with carbon fiber and mirror would be the final touches to make it look as amazing as it could.
Background: 10+ years carpenter, never touched fiberglass. Built a few slot port boxes with 3/4 and 1 inch mdf.
