Yeah I doubt myself when it comes to this kinda of thing. Put in the work etc. I'm going to put a runner in front of the box to keep it from sliding forward any even though it is pretty tight against the seats... 20190331_162322.thumb.jpg.da7d4521f241373ad041df4ca7910112.jpg

A little difficult getting in there with the gun. Oh well hopefully after getting it done I won't see the inside for a very long time. 20190404_073748.thumb.jpg.ef1832a72fe50b500a7c3415715389fe.jpg20190404_073816.thumb.jpg.7b7fb7b0fbf0dbea1743581f9e5f05ad.jpg

Going a little nuts with the shop stereo in between waiting on paint to dry. 4 16ohm buy out specials 4" mids crossed over at 800 to 5 k. The 2 eminence 4s will handle 100 to 800. Tweeters 5k up. Need to separate the enclosure on the inside and add the ports for sub and the eminence. Should be a pretty efficient set up. I've got an old plate amplifier with high level inputs I might incorporate for the sub. Fun stuff lol.20190407_155207.thumb.jpg.8d82458a381ec375fb38cb2682974d27.jpg

I'll have to wait till next weekend to try it out but pretty much done. Hard to get too excited about a pair of 8s but after all the work put into it I'll still be looking forward to trying it out. Hopefully it'll put the problem of front facing side port in that truck to rest...

Very nice work Fithwheel! I wish I had that kind of talent with making custom boxes let alone the tools needed to do so. So jealous of all of you people that are able to do this. That is one thing my dad was never into which was wood working and construction other then the basics and of course building a couple boat docks.

Thanks.. I give most of the credit to tools. A nice table saw a good router and a little patience go a long way..

I got lucky with my dad, he was a machinist for Mobil Oil for close to 30 years & was also their jet engine mechanic as they had a jet engine they used for their electrical power in Elwood, IL. He was also into boating, snowmobiling, quads, dirt bikes, drag racing basically anything with an engine along with all the electronics and computers. He taught me to build my own computer at 10 in the mid '80s from the ground up with all the soldering and what not. That and he was an addict with house electronics, we even had a 12 foot Wineguard Satellite Dish in our back yard with access to 50 some satellites it was freaking awesome.

In the long run it ended up costing me several expensive addictions, especially drag racing when I was into that on a weekly basis at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, IL. Cost me money but without him I would have been spending thousands more paying a shop. Most kids were out playing at 8 years old, I was in the garage rebuilding engines, lol.

Temporarily locked into place till i can put some pieces in that are a little more discrete. Had to do a fair amount of running around this weekend. Box was worth the effort.  The little ultimax dig deep for 8s.Just works better front fire etc. Idk about thoes fox boxes and all the others firing up down etc. Didn't work all that great for me up or down in my little truck anyway.

I find this thing hilarious for some reason. Decided to use the 4 4s for the low end modeling  the alphas extend up a little better to match better with the tweeters crossover point.

Might be doing a skar enclosure for someone else. Working out the details. Certainly not something I'd buy but could be interesting

Check out the bracing and all the stuffing  in this old Yamaha enclosure. Found something to do the plate amp. Rest of it is going in the local landfill.
