One of the best Sub installs in an Ex ive ever seen.

A guy i know "Jon Kowanetz" who is a MECP Master Certified Installer at Handcrafted Car Audio - Mesa, AZ 480-580-2283. Shared these with me and i figured i would share then with you.

All of the following text is from him.....

Did this one about two weeks ago. It's pretty self explanatory from the pics. I used two Hertz Energy 10" subs and ran them off of an Arc Audio XXD4080 bridged. All the other equipment in the truck was pre-existing. Let me know what you think.


Stock door frame.


I cut the holes in each door to the same dimensions so that each sub would have similar size enclosures.

I made a frame that loaded into each hole, and then glassed the back side. As the glass was curing, I started to frame out the boxes.



I skipped a few pictures in the process here, I got a bit behind! Basically, I just made the baffle of the box the same shape as the door panel that was pulled off, mounted it to the frame on each side and then just made four side pieces that fit the contour of the door.

Here, I copied just the top section of each side onto a random piece of 1/2" MDF. Then, I rabbeted 3/4" in and 1/4" up into it. Once that was done, I followed the rabbeted edge with a 1/4" spiral flush trim. This left me with a 1/2" by 1/4" replica of the shape of the top of the box.

Here it is loosely in place.



Here you can see why I made that piece. After attaching those pieces to the top of each box, I simply continued that 1/4" border all the way around. This gave me a place to pull vinyl over into and then lay carpet in the middle. This is very similar to the factory piece.

A few days later I threw a couple of grilles on them.

Very nice work, I bet you Ex rocks now!

How many cu.ft. with and without the subs installed?
Do you think that enclosure would fit 12" subs?
What was the mounting depth available with this enclosure?
Where did you hide your amp?
How much do you think each enclosure weighs?

Very nice job on your sub.

Here is what I did. Reversed the rim for more depth. Molded a fiberglass box to the shape of the rim with studs to bolt to the wheel. The box has a MDF top and carpet. It is a 10" sub.

Both of those are VERY nice. Its funny though how many installers I went to about doing them in the doors, they all said its not possible. My final idea though and what I am planning to do.

Have an entire mold done of the tire, and have the box made with that mold and put in the spare tire well. Then find a nice really thin spare tire cover that covers the whole thing speaker and all. I am goin for the stealth look.

But very nice lookin on both of those above.

That's awesome.
I've always wanted to make my own fiberglass box, how do you do it?
