Default Any tips on building wall

I am gonna be walling a 1992 Saturn sl2 I picked up. I have never done a wall but always wanted one, also with tuning would say 25hz be to low I just want it to demolish the lows. I am thinking about doing 4 15s if I have the room. I'll upload pics of the car tomorrow

for my first wall which is my current setup i didnt make the walls thick enought.
needs to be WAY THICKER. wanting to take my baffle off and add .75 MDF board to every wall. THEN more bracing. right now its only 1'' thick.
and try to seal it off behind the A pillar. as in air tight if you can.

don't forget the "dancefloor". take 2x4s to make a "shell" around the area u plan to use for the wall (typically from rear deck to the b-pillar or just behind the farthest point your front seats go back). Fill the area between the shell and actual doorpanels and stuff with foam/great stuff. Then get to building your enclosure. save the trunk for amps and batts

and good luck

Do you glue everything inside the car? For the sides could I just do 1 layer of mdf and glue/screw 2x4s to cover the whole the side walls to add strength.

unless you have a jeep or something and you can slide it in and have a forklift to do so you build a wall in the car.

build it out on paper first... literally.... step by step all the way to the point of making beauty panels and wiring up the last thing... you will find that you need to change steps and make room here and there.
