so i worked on the sub box and heres where it sits as of now..
Image
have to put two good layers of tape
criss crossed
Image
i needed the sub to fit a little farther bak so i had to cut a section out not a big deal.
Image
Image
then put a layer of resgin down and then cut up some fiberglass cloth and apply... the more the better. needs to b strong.
Image
Image
after it hardens pull out

Image
trim the edges

Image
Image
test fit make sure it looks the way you want it too.... next ill b making this thing like a rock.. and then making the sub ring and hopefully by sunday it will b a sub enclosure and by next weekend have everything finished and have good quality sound system..

I dig it. I have to make a box like that eventually, I'm just slow and have way too much on my plate to settle down and do it. I like it a lot though.
