Ok I am working on my subwoofer enclosure and I am having a hell of a time trying to figure out what to do to get the cloth to lay right. I haven't tried to lay it yet but I don't think it won't look very good with the sharp edges. I have included a few photos of the box as it sits with the trim rings about where they will be when the box is build.
I am also going to try to put a chevy logo in the center of the box near the top and backlight it. I am probably going to fiberglass the whole top.
There will be a box or something built to decrease the volume of the box also.
I am trying to get the box to flow really good and the center will be inset from the subs.
I am thinking I need to
1)cut the vertical pieces on the sides so they are about half as deep as they are. so they would be shallower
2) Cut a notch into the center of the box between the two trim rings
3) Radius the edges on the top of the pieces (about the same curve as the trim rings)
Sorry if I can't explain very good but I'll do my best to answer any questions. Looking for some help here as I'm lost.

I'm thinking I need to make cuts where the green lines are and remove the portion with green area

I would go GREEN (no pun intended), if the subs will allow the smaller volume go for it. Space is always at a premium in trunks.
The best tool in my work shop, is my BRAIN!!!!

Well I made some cuts I'm happy with most of them but one I don't think I'm going to be (We'll see when the cloth is laid)
some photos of the box as it stands right now (I'm 99% sure the center half circle will be patched)
Edit: I think I'm going to patch the half circle and cut the base of the box so it's behind the sub ring on the bottom

I need advice one more time. I'm going to have a center area with a chevy logo that is backlit. What is the best way to ensure this will allow a sealed chamber on each side? Should I staple the cloth all the way around and rely on the bondo to help shape it? I'll see if I have a pic of the center piece. The piece is only as far out as the bottom shelf and has a solid front for the bottom half

I noticed the optima sitting on the cement...everyone i know including mechanics say that will drain the battery dead. Don't know why...but figured I'd let you know.

Thanks for the heads up but I only thought it would drain conventional batteries not sealed? As of right now I haven't had a problem and it's been sitting on the ground for a while

Nope...... Google will help... "Batteries use to be contained in Tar-lined wooden boxes..." ... You dont have to worry about this anymore(maybe if it was leaking). Actually the Cement can work as a heat-sink, ETC...
