This is my first time building a box, so don't judge to hard. I have received a lot of help from @shredder2 . Unfortunately i only had a skill saw, drill, router and a Dremel tool. Box is 4ft^ @ 32hz

Specs-

Subs - 2x Sundown Audio LCS @ 1ohm

Amp - Soundqubed S1-1250 @ 1ohm

Will post more pics as i complete the build

I love budget builds with basic tools. The box looks great and the cuts are about as good as you can do with the equipment you have. 
Thank you. Yea its a little tough using basic tools, but i managed. Ill post more pics as i go

I've forgotten how big a Crown Vic trunk is apparently... unreal... how many bodies fit in there?

Looking good...  that box will almost disappear in there.

2 Sundown LCS Subs = 90$ shipped. Got these off the yard sale page for 90$ shipped. Checked the ohms on each VC and its right on 4. Hopefully they're good. Hopefully they went to yard sale because of the paint chips/rust.

Finished caulking the inside before I put the top on so it's easier and painted the port

Getting closer to finishing up this build.  Recieved my carpet, plexi glass (for amp rack/battery storage), connectors, wire + more.  I'm going to try and build the amp rack this weekend and run the 1/0 gauge wire. I'm also doing the big 3 upgrade.  Purchased 35ft 1/0 red, 10ft 1/0 black and a knukonceptz 4ga ofc kit. Wonder how well these 1/0 screw in compression fittings work - has anyone used them? If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Finished up the box tonight and rewired the subs with better wire. Tomorrow or Sunday I will be doing the big 3 and installing a 2nd battery. I will also be making a nice amp rack with plexi glass and LED's. Stay tuned. car audio on a budget?

Btw this is my first time building a box and carpeting
