Hey guys,

After a couple of weeks of research and one week of building, I finally finished my homemade sub enclosure. It fits 2 JL Audio 6w0's and fits where the stock sub enclosure was. For the amp, I am using an Alpine MRD-M350 running at less then 1/2 gain.





You can see more pics of it here (pics and writeup are near the bottom):

I made the box out of 1/2" MDF, liquid nails and screws. It is the perfect volume for the 2 6w0's. I am very happy with the way this turned out. It is a vast improvement over the stock sub and this system just pounds now!

Any comments or questions please let me know,

Thanks,

Asheesh

Brian,

What are you doing with your old setup?

Ryan
The current setup is what I came up with after thinking of doing a subwell setup like in this thread.

I figured I would have no room elsewhere, so I utilized the space available in the subwell for equipment storage.

The bass response is excellent.....very accurate and tight bass.....not boomy at all. But when you turn up the volume, it can totally shake the car!

I dont usually listen to hiphop.....I put in some trance, techno, linkin park, and then radio, and it all sounded great. If I find a hiphop CD, I will put it in and see how it sounds....

The setup was awesome. You wouldn't expect the kind of bass it produced. With the dance stuff it could really pound. It was tight and very accurate. I put in some bassy hard rock/metal stuff like King's X (Mr. Bulbous, Black Like Sunday), Dream Theater (Train Of Thought), some Pop/Rock like Ty Tabor (Safety), Jughead, etc. It passed my picky ears with excellent results. :D

I forgot about this, but what did you do with the spare tire cover? That cover was cut to fit with the factory subwoofer. Did you leave it in, have to trim it, pitched it? Thanks.

Hi Gary,

When I cut the top of the box, I made it so that the spare tire cover would end just before the top of the box begins...but I made sure that the spare tire covers butts against the edge of the box top so it does not move around......so there is no interference at all between the box and the spare tire cover. Does this make sense? Its hard to describe without a picture.....

That makes sense. The 10" box I'm considering requires cutting/trimming of the spare tire cover. I also am going to need your help on the best way to wire it all up.

No problem....

cutting the spare tire cover will be easy with some heavy duty shears (hell, even some big scissors will cut it).

As far as the wiring is concerned...it shouldn't be too bad....the only difference I see between that 10" box and mine is that the terminal cup is on the drivers side with the 10"...you just need longerr wire...but other than that no problem....let me know if you need help/advice/ideas....
