I want to see some pics of your custom sub box, whether it be built by a shop or by yourself. I'm trying to get ideas on how to build my own. Thanks. :cool:

My pics are in my sig on page 3 box building pics. I built with a friend and his dad. It took us 1 day for box one, 1 day for box 2, and 45 minutes to cut holes out. It was really easy and fun.

I wish I had a digital camera. Mine is made of 3/4" birch. It is about 2.6 cubic feet. The port is aluminum which is 4x10.5" with a 3/4" flange. A friend of mine at a welding shop made it for me and I polished it by sanding it with 220 to 1500 paper. Then polished it with simichrome. It is just about perfectly chrome. My box holds a single Audiobahn AWP310X. For 1 10" it is amazing.

Here is the custom fiber glass pod i had made for a 10in sub.

It fits in where there used to be a storage bin in the back.. on the passenger side of the car.

No, those are the only pics I've got... The rack is mounted to two sliders that I bought from Home Depot that are meant to be used for those racks that slide out from under desks and hold keyboards. They are rated to hold 50 pounds and cost about $17. I just mounted them to a base of MDF that I made to replace the carpeting of the floor and mount my cap, crossovers, and dist. blocks to, and then put the amp rack on top of them and secured it with some screws.

Hey B94Sport, ever think of making that a motorized amprack?

Here are 2 of my setups.

L7 box

Orion XTR PROs box

I sold the box for the 2 15s today but the box for the L7 is for sale if anyone is interested.

Soon I will have pics of the new box I am working on for my explorer for 3 15s.

Actually, I have thought of that, I just didn't want to blow the money on it just yet... Yeah, it's easy to find linear actuators with about 10" of travel with limit switches on eBay for a decent price. I might motorize it in the near future. Then the next step would be to make an automatically opening liftgate. How cool would it be to come up with a way of wiring one of my alarm's auxilliary outputs up so that when I pressed a button on my transponder, the tailgate popped open and the amp rack slid out? :)

You might be able to get parts to do this from one of the newer Caravan's with power rear hatch...Would be really sweet!

What kind of paint did you use on the speaker box and the amprack (the part that slide's out and the bottom piece.
I am going to try to make mine motorized if i can find some motors cheap:D

Thanks
