the box is excellent quality. i would recommend it to anyone, and it's reasonably priced. the ONLY problem i had was that one of the power wire terminals connector was bad. it would not open for some reason. but as far as quality it was good.

I didn't want all the sound from the subs pushing into the trunk. It rattled like crazy (even with dynamat) and I wanted as much sound to go into the cab as possible. So I built the box with the trim piece over the front so no sound goes into the trunk. I also drilled 4" holes into the back of the seats (under the fabric) to allow more sound through. This helped as well. I may even cut out the area behind the arm rest to allow more sound through later. I saw another member of this forum do this. My only complaint with this box is the port noise. The port size is 6" x 4" (so it fits through the factory sub hole). These subs push a lot of air and I can hear the air flowing out of the port. I may have to round off the top of the port some. But I can live with this as the overall sound of the box now is the best I've had in this car.

nice install! I gotta ask, (dont beat me up for this) but any reason to have the subs facing the front?
I think it's been found that you get good bass with less chance of
rattle when the subs are facing forward.

I'm facing the rear and it took me almost removing the rear bumper
to get rid of the rattles, but you can get good sound both ways.

I have a very basic SPL meter that stops at 120dB. I can pin it
very easily with a single sub system that's nothing spectacular,
so you can imagine the number of rattles that get uncovered with
more subs and higher power levels facing the rear....

And folks, please use some hearing protection if you checking
for the maximum level of your system.

Super clean, I am working on something very similar as just a rack for my 4 channel amp, a seperate 2 channel, along with a stinger cap. where did you get the great color matched carpet and how did you attach the cover to the main piece?

i got the carpet for autozone, it was about $9. it's not a perfect match though, it's alittle off. i attached the cover by using 3" piece of wood. i just cut alittle piece and used it as a spacer,drilled that to the box and then screwed the cover to the spacer. that part is kind of ghetto but you cant see the wood once it's installed.:biggrin: i was going to install a cap but alot of members here said i didnt need one so im not using one, i'll probably upgrade to a ultima battery soon.
