When you say "seal" do you mean seal the front cabin from the back cabin air tight? Or "seal" as in make a nice trim panel to "look" sealed?

Cause there is no non-messy way of sealing the cabin tight.

Yup this guy is correct. Foam is a common way of sealing it up then trim panels to make it look legit.

depending on how much room is around the edges you can do it like this...

glue a piece of 3/4 mdf 3/4" back off the edge, around the outside of the box. So you can make the trim panels and have something to screw them to.

If that makes sense

yes id like to completely seal it off... and then make some sort of trim panel .. wat is this foam u guys speak of ? and were do i get it from ... the subs will be in the enclosure being its a 4th order wall .. so can i just use like a piece of masionite and screw to the foam area once it hardens up ? or any other suggestions would be great this is my 1st attempt to completely seal off a wall...

being a 4th order wall if u go the route of completely sealing it up its going to be a B**** to replace the subs if need be ... is it 100% necessary to seal it instead of just panel it off ? ..

Here is a link to how I did it. It starts on the page with the link below and you'll have to go through some pages to see the rest of the pictures, but the way I did it it should be able to go back to stock without damaging any interior and it is completely sealed off.
