  • I'd like it to look good, but I don't mind/ need it removeable, so I just carpet the plain box.

    To pannel a box into the trunk or not?

    I've built quite a few trunk builds now and I'm just working on an under seat build for my truck. Not saying I'm any good but I've always added fill in pannels, hidden compartments, modeling foam curves ect to my installs before carpeting.

    I was just wondering if most people do this or not?


    I have seen a lot of quality kit with perfectly (acoustically that is) designed boxes just slung in the trunk since I have been here in Chicago.

    Is it just that there's some Cheap asses here in IL, or is it more common for poeple to get the design right and make no compromises for asthetics?
    Maybe people want removeable, but even then a 1/4" thick front plate that goes over the box and is fitted to the open trunk spaces wouldn't be so hard?

    We find that most people wont pay for the extra work. But it always makes them look so much better to finish it out.

    I'm thinking about having my next box be built out of oak with rounded corners/edges. then staining it.

    If it's in some kinda pimp ride that has leather and wood already... that would be cool!

    Check out this Low my friend threw together back in the UK...

    Fake woodie to the max!


    The install was actually an MDF box in the boot, about 1 cu ft but the box and the amp sat inside an old leather suitcaseall screwed down to the false floor!

    You should build it by hand. Like, cut the wood by hand and sand the edges by hand. =|
