My New Project

Recieved my speaker box from Mr. Marv the other day. Awsome work

Rattle canned it with Duplicolor Bed Liner after roughing it up alittle. So far, about 3 coats all the way around it. Not going to apply anymore, was told that it takes 7 days for it to fully cure.

Just got my Dynamat in today, 36 sq feet. That should cover the whole back wall along w/ the four doors???

Should get this installed at the first of the next week. Will post finished pics.

You used bed liner to paint the box??? Like the idea. What else can you use to coat the box? Marv is making one for me right now too.

Yeah, still seems to be holding up pretty damn good. If you use Duplicolor, call them prior to spraying. They told me to use an oil based something before using the bed liner on wood. Oh, well it still looks pretty good.

Will post some install pics next week

Wel today, the install took place. Placed Dynamat on the rear wall of the cab and installed the steering wheel control wire. Put in the mono amp (polk 500.1) and (2) 10 inch Polk Momo subs into the box Mr. Marv made for me. As already mentioned, I bed lined the box with Duplicolor Rattle can (6cans by the way) which looked pretty good.

After removing the brackets on the rear wall as well as the child restraint hooks, the box fit pretty damn good. The only down fall was the amp rack was made to fit the dimensions for the Polk 400 amp but after the install the seat would not lock without removing the rear plastic cover of the backing of the seats. (Was told i would not have to remove them as i needed them to haul things on when needed) As far as the sound, it is ok for now. Not what i expected though.

Still need to do some fine tuning to see if i can get the subs to sound the way i had them in my previous tacoma. Will call Mr. Marv tomorrow to see if we can fine tune them alittle more.

Andy, Thanks for coming out to the house to do the install.

I could only take a few pics until my battery died. Will get more tomorrow.
