Re: Hobby Projects


Spent the evening mocking up a center console subwoofer box for my truck

Not sure how I am going to configure the setup just yet. Leveling it out and making the end product look right is gonna be tricky

Re: Hobby Projects


I bought matching carpet for mine, and glued it on the hiusing. All MDF, no frame. Just screwed together. Amp was mounted under the passenger side seat.

I may or may not lose the frame.

That's some serious real estate dedicated to speakers. I have to shoe horn items into my cab.

That's why JL makes stealth boxes for almost every vehicle.

Re: Hobby Projects


In high school I helped a buddy replace the entire bench seat with a sub box. It might not have been all that safe.

Nothing is more enjoyable than stopping for a traffic light and having your guts scrambled by someone's heavy bass thumping.

Re: Hobby Projects


Ditch the frame and make it all out of 3/4" MDF. Use some stif cardboard for templates of each side to scribe to floor and get your heights and shapes right. Then cut the two sides and put in place and check fit. Pick a width and start cutting pieces for the bottom, top, front, and back to make the enclosure. Screw from the sides into those pieces using glue. If there is any angles or weird fitting pieces you can't cut the pieces to meet good you can use fiberglass to fill it in. I've built a handful of these back in the day. My last one had a built in computer with a power board that turned it on and off with the truck and the console had a built in computer screen along with two 15" MTX 9500s. The console went from the front dash all the way back and on top of the rear center seat. I always smooth mine out with body fiberglass and body filler and then sprayed them with matching paint. But that was about 15 years ago.

Nice work!

Do you have "spikes" on the ends of the legs to dig in?
