Default wall build for a 98 bonneville

alright so im debating doing my first wall. i have a good idea of how these can be done the right way just havent seen many build logs or good videos on people's bonneville ideas. any way i right now have two 15 avalanches. im trying to go for two more or 2 18"s. so would sub forward and port to the back with a sheet of mdf as a loading wall be best? ive heard plenty of good things about this. or would it be better to make the entire back area the wall seal it and sub/port forward? im not into burping i love my music and love it loud so it will be daily. right now im getting good lows from the trunk. so im hoping to achieve some great airflow with them lows with this. i have roughly an area of 60"w x 40"t x 20"d. a design that i could follow would be great but even tips on what ive already said is all i really am after. most likely ill be using mdf but other suggestions are appreciated on that also. thanks for any and all help

I built a wall in a acura vigor and u need a good base. Build a 2x4 base and bolt it to the car and now at lease u have a nice solid platform to start. Attachment 38438
Attachment 38439
And alot of bracing. Build it big and solid than u can atlease shrink it or leave it big incase u want to do 4 15s or something.
Attachment 38440Attachment 38441Attachment 38442Attachment 38443Attachment 38444
Than we shrank it so it was spec for the 3518s. And fiberglassed the back 3 layers but made sure the front is removable so he could do 6 12s later on

I had planned to do the 2x4 base. U had exactly my idea. Build it for 2 15s and make removable sub face. So do you think that a loading wall would be a good way to go? I think I'd have about 13 cubes after displacement and bracing. Or how should I have them configured? Also it won't let ne view the pics. Thanks for the help

Its solid to. With the top u make it double but leave 3/4 off the edge of the one board so the back an side will just fit into place

I deff see what you mean. I like the way that's looking. Is fiberglass the best for sealing cracks and smoothing inside? Or is there better options like heavy wood glue or gorilla glue? Also is slot port or aero better for a wall?

Aeros are better than slot port but when u have a port that big i dont think it matters as much. And we used wood glue and caulked all the edges and braced it with brackets and fiberglass just seals everything an strengthens it all up to. And as for smooth if u sand between coats its pretty smooth

Alright so a little of both. I was thinking aeros wouldn't b as good for a wall because they would either have to be very big or a bunch of them. So is there a huge difference between porting between subs or offset. I see in your pics its driver side port passenger subs. Any specific reason?
