New sub box
5 Attachment(s)
Built and painted this sub box. Also mounted my air compressor inside so now I can get my back seat back in! I think maybe 4 -5 hours build time and painting (used roll on bed liner to paint to match tub) and then about 2 hours install. Had to re-wire the sub and amp and re-route all my wires.

nice job! is that 3/4" MDF"

Mike5087 12-30-2011 04:46 PM

No. I was planning on using it but I had some left over 3/4 plywood that I used. Not my first choice but it's quality plywood which from my understanding is a close 2nd to MDF. Sounds great though. Very pleased with how it turned out.

Nice! Hopefully I'll be sharing my install shortly. When I get a Jeep that is!!

Mike5087 12-31-2011 08:22 AM

Yes do share. Just a tip... Fit it frequently during the building process!! Haha

What sub do you have in there? I love building enclosures!!

Are there any ported sub enclosures on this forum??

Mike5087 12-31-2011 01:42 PM

It's a 10" 1000 watt jbl sub.

There is a thread somewhere around here with a bunch of sub box plans.

i have a ported enclosure in my jeep.

I-Want-A-Jeep 12-31-2011 02:38 PM

Nice!! An Incriminator! is it 10 or 12? What's the volume/tuning?

I have a 12" Elemental Designs Ov.2 series that'll be going in my future Jeep! Hoping to fit it ported.

not too many people know about IA, but its a great company with quality products and has the best customer support i have ever dealt with.

i have a 12" death penalty(1500rms) i run it off of a MB Quart DSC 1500.1D, i run Knu Konceptz wires all round and all 1/0 gauge wire, the enclosure is a little under 3^ft and tuned to 32Hz.

i have 2 15" death penalties going in my 2011 legacy GT. and gonna power them with the IA40.1

I-Want-A-Jeep 01-01-2012 01:21 PM

Nice! at 3ft^3, I'm assuming you have your backseat out??

I love Knu Konceptz wiring!! Pretty great prices too!

Jma20a 01-01-2012 04:24 PM

yeah the back seat is out and i have a bestop extendatrunk in the back to keep it covered if it rains or if i dont want people to see it.

and i have knu konceptz battery terminals and 300 amp anl in-line fuse.

Mike5087 ... that looks good! I am looking at putting one in my '99 Sahara. Do you have any plans/measurements you used? What did you use for the the bottom stand?
