Default jhg33k's trunk build

So after getting rid of the truck I thought I wasn't going to put anything in my car since it was brand new. That didn't last long at all lol.

My plan is to run in S1 this time for MECA so I'm limited to 1500w or less and have little to work with. Here is the equipment I either have on hand or have already ordered and am just waiting on delivery.

Mechman 170a alt - Have it
XS D5100R - Ordered it
XS XP2000 - Ordered it
Sundown SAZ1500 - Have it
DC 1.2K - Have it
DC 175.4 - Have it
DC M2 Level 4 15" - Ordered it
CDT COM626 for front - Have it
CDT HD-690CFX for rear - Have it - Installed
Kenwood DNX7140 w/XM - Have it - Installed
KnuKonceptz 1/0 KCA - Have it
KnuKnoceptz Karma in 8, 10, and 12 gauge - Have it
Second Skin Damplifier - Have it - Installed

I'm trying my hand at fiberglass this time around and will be building a fiberglass piece to seal off my sub box to the cabin so I'll be firing both sub and port forward. In the trunk I made a sub floor out of MDF and will be fiberglassing that in as well with a fiberglass shell over top of it. I just hope all turns out well since it is my first time glassing!!

Pics to follow shortly...

Forgot to add...I'm also building a pod for my second glove box that will house my volt meter and amp cut off switches. I'll fiberglass this as well...here is the rough frame work of it. I just need to wrap it in fleece and get the resin to it!

Have been trying to in the time I get to lol...thanks though!

Also forgot to mention the box. I took my first stab at designing this time around and will be doing a slot kerfed port at 3.49 after displacements and tuned to 29.97 for daily. The fiberglass seal will also house my second box for comps which I have yet to decide on how I'm going to build yet. I'll do another kerfed slot port and probably just reduce the depth and tune higher but until I get my sub from DC I can't test for my car's frequency.

I wanted to use aero's but can't get the right port area so I stuck with a slot...

Why such a low tuning (even on a daily)... Personally i wouldnt tune that low, but that's just me.

Btw, great selection in equipment! Whats the goal in S1?

I listen to mainly decaf, slow n throw, big pimpin mixes so I like the lower tuning As for a goal...I don't have one just yet cause I don't know what the equipment is capable of...I've only used bigger equipment in the past so I have to play and see!
