Default Focal Door Pod Build

Here's the door pod build for my Silverado. I forgot to take a lot of pics when I built the actual fiberglass pods, I got in "go time mode". Well onto the goods...

Cascade V-block sound deadener applied to outer and inner skins of the doors.



If you heat it up with a heat gun you can use a roller and a piece of cardboard to help it form to the door.

Here is a MDF ring that goes between the inner metal door skin and the plastic door panel. It provides a rigid mount for the fiberglass pod by connecting it to the actual door and improves mid bass response. The ring was made from two pieces of 3/4" MDF laminated together and then planed down to 1 1/8" so it fit perfect between the two panels. It was then coated in resin for waterproofing.

Here are the pods after paint...




Silicone applied to the door panel to eliminate vibrations...



Mounted to the door panel through the midrange opening with bolts and the bolts that hold the MDF spacer ring in place also go through the plastic door panel and fiberglass pod so the entire assembly and all of the parts are rigid to achieve that sweet mid bass response...
