I glued the first ring down tite and now I am worrying about this curve or crease its going to create even if stretched tite.

You need to add some framing to the shape that you want between the trim rings. Otherwise you pull it tight and it will naturally form a valley between the trim rings.

I would saturate that with some other glue before resining it and finding out that the resin eats that glue and lifts it up.  You won't be a happy camper then.

Dont expect the glue to hold if resin is going to touch it. As soon as the chemical reaction starts, resin heats up a LOT. this will cause the glue to let go. Use staples or super glue.

oh yeah. That box may be a lil small for 15" VR's, but I'm not sure.  You may need to invert the subs/and or put in some polyfill.
