New plans! Just Ordered!
Nine.4
New ED e9.65i components
Going with a slightly different box setup for my little 9kv.2, and it isnt fiberglass but it is a little more stealthy :).

so far this is what ive got done:










any comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated, please keep the bashing to a minimum, this is my first audio build. Im using .5" mdf to maximize the space i can get in that area. I am happy so far with it. I will be covering both in black carpet to match. Also if anyone can help me out on wiring kits and what size wires ill need please because i have no clue. I was thinking like 4awg for the amp kit, but what size speaker wire should i use?

Also i just want to thank durt for sub box ideas and pics to get me started and caeavesRSX-S for the idea of the amp wall in the passenger tire well.

As of now i think im just going to seal it up and use carpet. However if it comes out sounding like shit im going to fibreglass a new similar enclosure.

It's looking good so far. I kinda wish I had my system like that, but it just take up the entire trunk. I just wish I could use my trunk... as a trunk. What are you going to use to keep them attached to the car so they don't come flying off during spirited driving?

I havent got that far yet, but i was thinking either like a hook or looop that would hold it in place or industrial strength velcro :dontknow: Ya i spent a while really dreaming up how i wanted my small little system to fit in there because i like to have the usability of the trunk especially with the seats down. Hopefully it turns out nice :)

^^ ya i was on the fence about it, but i wanted to get it done quicker and didnt want to collect all the materials to fiberglass. I do think that when i have the time and im going to redo and use fiberglass so i can fill in the space a little better.

fyi, you don't need much to fiberglass, just the resin, some fiberglass matte, gloves, couple garbage bags (protection for your car) and some cheap paint brushes.

If you ever decided to tackle the project, let me know I can help you with anything you need, there are also a few good write-ups on this site.

Either way, good luck

Looking good so far man.

Did you decide on the 9kv.2s?
ya i got the 9kv2. I decided to go with somethin smaller and lighter but would still give me a little thump with techno and hip hop (originally was thinking 11kv2). Also i was able to make a smaller box because i picked it. Ill be finished tommorow with it hopefully. I just have to get it carpeted up and then wire up the sub :).
