    Stealth Build: Escalade 2nd Row Center Subwoofer Console.

    Customer wanted a sub but didn't want it taking up cargo space. I went over several options for location/placement and we finally decided to go with the space between the 2nd row seats.

    Had a little cancellation because the sub was near the center of the cabin, but it's what he wanted.

    Put a custom-built Supercharged DD Audio 3510ESP in this one.


    Hector had never been on the router before I decided to teach him on this enclosure. He did half of a layer and let me take back over. Scared.

    This enclosure is built using multiple layers of the correct profile stacked on top of one another. The enclosure volume, port, and internal bracing were all built into each layer.

    Lots of math to get this one right. I wanted it tuned to 35 Hz. Measured 35.1 Hz when it was done.



    Since the enclosure needed bracing I built that into four layers.











    The customer didn't understand what I was building and how it would sit in the vehicle. Took these pics to show him and let him get a better understanding of the enclosure.





    A partial cap on the sides.



    Building out the sides.


    Sides assembled to the main body.






    Tig welded feet.




    Took the arm rest to the upholstery shop to get a grain/color match.


    Shot the feet with Line-X.


    Installed.

    Had several car audio guys stumped when looking for the subwoofer in this one.

        Get a haircut hippy!!



        Thats awesome work! I cant imagine the boringness of running that pattern but all those times though.

        Do you do your own sewing and upholstery work or farm it out?

            Really nice work, do you happen to have more pics? Maybe from the sides of the finished box on the bench, or even from the front seats looking back?

            I'm trying to figure out what's part of your box, and what's factory. I guess that's a compliment too

                        Thats pretty badass, and very creative. Scroll saw or jigsaw?

                              The upholstery that requires stitching gets sent to an upholstery shop. Everything else I do.

                              Pay someone to do it.

                              All router.

                              A 1/4 spiral flush trim bit makes short work of stuff like this. Using a jig saw to rough cut before routing is just wasted time.
