Im new to this so bare with me.
what materials aside from mdf to start a foundation will i need to build a custom 4 12' sub box the current space is the entire third row seat of a 04 explorer xlt. so if anyone can tell me what materials i need i will attempt to make something like this for learning purposes and well if it comes out good use it if not garbage.
I want to achieve making something like this similar to this but 4 sub mounts and 4 amps in a rack

Forgot sand paper, sand paper, patience, and sand paper. You also need wood, but that should be a given.

Oh yeah i forgot tell me if i am wrong but i recall watching an episode of on the discovery channel they where showing off 310 motors and west coast.
the guy had a huge block of foam and he carved out the shape he wanted then he added a hard coating then fiberglass etc.. and this box was killer. would that provide a better density then mdf for noise cancelation and vibration so at the end the result is better clearer frequencies? How about air ports i see alot of these custom fiberglass jobs look nice but where the hell does the air blow out? or is not supposed to?
and what are these advantages of having the subwoofer inward and regular outward
sorry for all the questions just curious and well this is a forum

In the case of making a FG enclosure the stages are usually: wood, a few coats of fg, filling, sanding, primer/filler and more sanding.  The FG is 2pac so u will need to mix the resin and hardener 2gethor, bog/filler is usually 2pac aswell so u mix the hardner with the filler.  Home Depot sells prety much all the stuff u wuld need, auto shops will proberly sell the fibreglass and bodyfiller awell

In a selaed enclosre the air isnt suposa be blowen out.  A ported enclosre has a vent on it that allows air to be pushed from the box.  If an enclosre dosnt have ports it is designed as a sealed box, ported boxes usalyy require more space aswell

Before attempting anyting even close to that you will want to build something small and work up. If you don't do this it will be suicide for you.
Why do you ask if I ate paint chips when I was younger?
