I finally found the time to get started on my sub install. I wanted to build this thread to show some of the DIY members how to construct a fiberglass enclosure.
Currently I am still in the process of building the enclosure as time and arrival of material plus a 4hr drive back to my home town hold me up (needed a garage).
-two 5mm bolts / length can vary, at worst buy longer and cut shorter
-four 5mm washers
-two 5mm crush washers or loctite
-two 5mm nuts
-aluminum sleeve / cut to needed length
To get started I first decided on a location to the left in the trunk where the factory amp in mounted (as some of the members have already done). Now we have to relocate the amp, I moved it above the wheel well.
This required the drilling of two 5mm holes into the cars sheet metal.
The way the amp is mounted one side of it is suspended so I got a longer bolt and a sleeve for it (sorry for the blurry picture).
This is the first step I took, I have more done and I will be posting as time goes on. I am open for any questions or suggestions members might have.
NOTE: Some of the tactics I used to build the box might not be the most efficient ones but do work and are completely air tight sealed. I have not built tons of these boxes but enough to know what I am doing, I have been in the business of automotive installations for the past 4 years and recently moved onto a different career.
Hope You Enjoy It
