i started a sub box in february

wasa going to school and working full time so i didn't get around to finishing it

gaver for the last week or so and finally finished it!! i think it looks pretty good

it goes in the passenger corner of my 90 civic hatch, over the shock tower

my cars is black so, thats why the box is

sprayed the inside with rubberized undercoat to a) make it look better  b) hold the dust!!

its 90% of what i wanted!!  the one problem is that...the sub it was designed for was stolen a week ago and the hole is like 4mm too small for the new one

i'm just gonne sand it down with my dremel a little and then i can touch up the paint on the whole thing!!

what do ya think??

What sub is it? I am not sure why a new JL wouldn't be the same, but just thought I would ask. Does look nice and a shame you can't use it.

the reason it doesn't quite fit is that i was using a 10w6...bought new last year.. but since they introduced the v2's all new jl subs like the w3v2 and w6v2 have a rubber surround as a gasket instead of just the steel backing of the basket

so this new rubber peice is what added the few mm's on my 10w3v2 over my w6

Looks awsome dude! How did you lay the fiberglass did you mix the resin with acetone to thin it out?

You should still be able to find a 10w6, the old style. Have you checked eBay? I wouldn't let a nice box like that go to waste.
