    Icon32 need advice on fiberglass boxes

    I want to start building fiberglass enclosures, but I dont know the first thing about fiberglass. I have built a ton of custom mdf boxes but that just isnt fun any more. I want a little more of a challenge so any information on how to get started, tips, or some good books and were to get them would be appreciated. I would also like to know what all supplies and equipment I will need and were to get them.

    thanks

    from what i've read over the internet you first build the box. Then you can use ring to raise the sub or you can just make the shape you want by making the frame and then streatching fleece over it. u then soak it with fiberglass resin and then put the matte on and soak it overkill is probably necessary when building these boxes. once that is done and cured u then sand and use filler to fill in the rough spots. Sand that and then prime it, and your ready to paint. thing i like about these boxes is you can get any shape u want. if this is not enough help try yahoo and type in how to make fiberglass speaker boxes.
