Why can't someone out east do this and then help me!!!?
Thats a good plan. I still haven't figured out how to get the damn siding off.When I do my next install I'm thinking I might try to make some very accurate templates and put together a DIY kit. The kit would include the precut MDF, RAAMmat and all that. Screw it in, seal it up and your good to go.
hahaha.... i'm in san bernardino. i wouldn't mind helping you out, but it was really a huge pita... especially with the fiberglass. if you went without the fiberglass like the other guys with just the raamat.. it won't be nearly as bad. i was just concerned with the stuff flexing with the sub, but i think i made the fiberglass with some leaks anyway, so i guess so much for that solution! where are you located?
An MDF/RAAMmat kit would allow for some various in area size and would be very cheap to put together. Most 8" subs require .3-.5 Cu. ft of airspace, so it is rather easy to adjust things to fit that range. A good fiberglass enclosure is just too expensive and time comsuming to produce.A mass production enclosure will not fit the needs for all subwoofers. Therefore, the enclosure should come with a list of recommended subwoofers. Also, a good rigid fiberglass enclosure will have 4-5 layers of fiberglass mat, which is important if you do not use bracing.
excellent idea! i never thought of that! :chair: i've always read about people using bondo to smooth out the exterior of it to make it nice and smooth before they paint it, but didn't ever think of using it on the inside! i'll have to try it out... see if it makes a difference. thanks. :Banane35:You probably need to re-enforce the fiberglass with some Bondo maybe. It's a lot of pressure. My single 8" Image Dynamic with 300Watt would move the body panel. You can see it from the outside!
Yep, that's the passenger side. Had to figure out how to get a cover to cover it. Ended up using the oem grille sideways to get it to fit. Thought that it looked better than cloth covering and still showed of the sub behind it.That second shot looks weird. Is that of the passenger's side?
Can anyone please tell me the depth from the grill to the metal on the passenger side? I want to install my STi intercooler sprayer there.
Not only would you want to work with the phase / polarity between the two but you would also probably want to delay one of them to work on the time alignment.Very good work, Sea-Scooby, Tre36, and Singincanary.
Question for any of you guys: did you reverse the polarity on one of the two subs? I imagine if the subs are firing against each other, there would be some sort of phase cancellation, and loss of sound?
