    My first attempt at a box that sacrifices nothing from the factory and sounds decent is what im shooting for. Also I just had to build a structural skeleton and fiberglass it because Ive always wanted to :D

    Here it is as of now:

    [​IMG]


    Here we go..



    I had some 3/4'' x 3'' laying around so I ripped it twice to get three 3/4'' x 3/4'' square.

    [​IMG]

    I cut out an mdf ring for the woofer, countersunk like 1/4''

    [​IMG]




    Then I routered out some rectangles so that I can drop a magnet in there. Its for my seatbelts, you'll see later...

    [​IMG]


    Here's The Wooden Frame,

    [​IMG]


    :stirthepot:







    Fiberglass time... :deadhorse:

    [​IMG]


    First layer resin, sand, fiberglass, sand, resin

    [​IMG]



    Glassed up the whole inside and resined a bunch of corners, etc.

    [​IMG]




    And the magnets you saw earlier in place, Im going to put steel strips on the seatbelt so they clunk right in there like magic

    [​IMG]


    Bondo! I love bondo

    [​IMG]

    :mudding:BRAAAP





    So thats all she wrote for now, I had it in my truck playing for two days and I yanked it and im sanding a little more, finishing bondo, etc. Ill keep y'all updated :cool:

    Oh that's for a newer second gen interior. I have an 06. Therefore, I no longer care.


    Just kidding. Make one for the older interior now please :D Looks good! Why not just have it solid with carpet?

    I have a 10 and that is not my back seat. I have a center console. OP has an 04? But that framing looks like it took a lot of work. Too bad you couldn't use plexyglass and show off the workmanship!

    Nope its a first gen!!

    I made it like this to maximize internal volume.. and I wanted to build a box a different way, i have built dozens the normal mdf/carped way.

    I'm surprised you didn't make the side pieces solid. Would have saved you about an hour just on the cutting alone. Have you ever tried kerfing?

    Solid design. Framework on a box like that is key.

    Nice work so far! Wish I still had pics from my first gen install :(

    Thats a good point, but like i said i wanted to maximize internal volume, and I wanted to just mess around with the 3/4'' x 3/4'' to get used to working with it so i could make the front solid, which was much trickier than the back.

    I have kerfed before! check out my last box in my old car:

    That thing slammed! It was sick, but im all about the sq now :)

    Today I put like 2 layers of deadener on the inside to kill any boomy overtones, and primed it to get a better feel for the shape of the box before more bondo
