my box wont fit.... lol thats actually dryfitted.

Question is:

In some places i cant staple in some places and its built into my trunk. Can i rely on glue to be strong enough? or what method should i take to seal it? I was thinking glue everywhere. caulk the internal corners and resin over it. good enough? any advice?

take out the backseat maybe one of the front seats and slide it thru the cabin opening. or try to force it in there without chipping the wood or hurting the impala

how big is it?

i was able to fit 4.5 in mine fairly easy if it would have been any bigger i woulda ran into the same problems as you

Glue is the main thing that holds a box together chemical bond > physical bond. Some people don't even use screws when building boxes. Screws help bring the wood together for a nice tight fit though but so do clamps. Use resin and glue clamp it till dry and you should be fine.

If you need to build it inside the box glue the wood, than use L-brackets to hold the two pieces together while it dries (than remove when glue is dried or leave on)

I use Tite Bond II for my glue, and like everyone says as long as it glued and you can get some kind of clamp on it (Screws, Clamps, L-Brackets) you will be fine.

I know you've already went to the trouble, but I too agree with going a different route as well. FIgure out how much displacement the 18" was going to give you, and try to get around the same with multiple smaller subs. It may not give you as much output overall as the 18, but you should be able to get close. It would just make life simpiler. Once you get that box in there and built, imagine trying to take it out.

i dont want simpler..... im going to use l brackets. its solid. the box design is nice too. i like it. just needed input. no one around here has an 18 in the trunk. gotta mix it up.
