Fiberglassing a door panel speaker pod...need some help!
Alright let me start off by saying this is my first time glassing anything. I have read lots of tutorials so I think i'm pretty well prepared. I am planning on cutting out some 1/4 paneling (yes like you put on walls) and using that as my base. I'll cut that to a shape and then use 1/2 particle board (because I have it lying around) to make the "mdf" rings. Then I'll test fit and aim the speakers and hot glue the ring in place.
I was wondering if any common materials other than fleece can be used to get the basic shape, and I also was wondering if the area under the fiberglass had to be filled in? I am thinking about making the 6.5" speakers that will be in the pods, sealed......is that a good idea? They are only my midbasses, I have tweets too. Will that improve the sounds overall?
What could I do to mount the fiberglassed pods to the door panels? Would contact cement work well? I am a newb at this and I know alot of these questions can probably be answered by searching, but I have looked through ALOT of threads and haven't found these answers yet...Please help me out!!
