Custom DIY Subwoofer Enclosure Above Wheel Well

So, I spent yesterday creating a new subwoofer enclosure for my 2 Door JK. I didn't like the box just sitting in the back because it took up useful space that I plan on using for future mods. So, I took my previous store-bought sub box and mounted it right behind the driver's seat.

Tools Used
Jigsaw
Drill
Dremel

Supplies
MDF (Recycle an old Subwoofer Enclosure)
L Brackets
Self Tapping Metal Screws
Loctite water proof sealant
Replacement Auto Carpet
Spray Adhesive

Very inventive. Looks clean and out of the way. How much air space did you get out of that box?

It's probably around .8-.9 cu ft. The external dimensions are 16x16x8.75 inches which would give you about 1.3 cu ft. But, the wheel well and thickness of material take up a good amount of space.
It sounds great though with the rest of my audio system, I can't wait to get it to a tailgate.

I actually used a different adhesive to seal the sides so I could apply it with a caulk gun (Same idea though, just a clear silicone adhesive). I used the loctite where I screwed the L-brackets to the tub.
