figure out how much space u need for subs and port, tuning frequency.

do you want to build the box inside the car or build it outside and slide it through the back.

gotta build the floor up ecspecially if there is a hump at all.

what kinda wall you wanna do? flat with a port to the side? Bottom? Top?

I think as far as spl goes the best way to go is off to the side.



build it on paper first... then make it happen

Do not do an L-Port, properly brace the crap out of it.

I want to build it in the jeep that why i am asking if others have done walls in there cars. I want to do 2x4 framing and have a flat wall with port on driver side(everyone says that best for spl.) mount the amps on the side on a floating board(to cut down on vibration) and have the batteries right behind the seats.

amps and batteries in the hatch is easier.

making the drivers seat be able to slide back / recline into the port opening would be convenient.

The rest is just a matter of building it.

theres no secrets.... there is a lot of build logs,
its just one of those things u gotta do and if its your first one you will learn alot of what not to do.

look over the build logs...

keep it simple with the mind set of..... its just a box.... and then u use panels to seal off the rest of the car.
