Default A Suburban A Warhorse and a Pair of SMDeez

It has begun. For those not familiar here is a recap:

Car Audio Classifieds

For now this is just a box and sub replacement, and everything that comes with it.

The goods:







The box design:



Estimated frequency response graph. O_o



I decided to spruce up the box design just a bit by adding some windows. Just a little something to show off the insanity of the sub's motor design. It's not everyday you get to see something this gonzo nuts.



Here is a little test of the line of site. The red strip represents where the sub will be. You might have to close one eye to get the full effect in person. :P



More on the way.

I started working on cutting the windows on the front side panel. I opted to change up from the circular windows to a pair of verticle slots on each side of the panel. I laid out the hole locations on the panel.



With holes cut in the panels as the ends of the slots I used a buddy's fancy little dremel router.



Needless to say that was a big waste of time. Stupid thing wouldn't track straight worth a damn. I roughed out the slots with a jigsaw. After a bit of thinking I came up with using a router with bearing guided bit. I used another of the boxes panels as a guide with some sockets to pick up the tangent points of the slots.



Here is the panel with the guide setup ready for the cut.



The router ready for action.



The first cut finished.



I used the port brace as the guide for the opposite side since I needed a shorter piece. Here is a side shot of the setup just before the cut.



Before starting the cut a quick verification that nothing is gonna hit. Last thing I want is to be caught off guard while handling a 20,000 rpm router.



The finished slots.



Thanks for looking.

This is going to be loud. So what are you going to do about bracing your vehicle (roof in particular)?

Not sure yet. I'm gonna hold off and see how bad it is first. I wanna minimize how much I put up there. Worst case scenario I use some liquid nails and glue 1/4" thick panels of MDF and build up till it's flush with the headliner. If it does get to that point I'll start sealing off any openings the vent the cabin and start chasing numbers on the TL. :P Hopefully it doesn't get to that point. I just want some loud tunes.

Well I have 2 Fi BL 18's on ~2400w and I had to seal off my sunroof and put a bit of MDF in my roof. A few parts of the roof still broke

You are on another level and I bet you would gain quite a bit by bracing your roof.
