    Latest Sub Enclosure: 2013 Challenger

    Built a 4th order for a pair of Stereo Integrity SQL-15s.

    Had to relocate the factory battery, extend wires for the fuse block, and weld in mounts for a Limitless Lithium Cyber 6k.



    Vented side in place. Mocking up the sealed side.


    Decided to use the center arm rest location for the port blow-through. Made a cover panel.

    Took about 10 minutes to shape this panel to match the contours of the car.



    Used the material removed from the factory arm rest to cover the panel.



    The port with cover panel off. 1/2" Neo magnets hold the panel in place. This cover panel is used only when they want to "hide" the system when the vehicle is parked or in for service. I'll make another panel to fill that gap around the port later. Not a priority right now.



    Cover panel in place.

      We need a vid of the subs launching the cover.

        The two SQL-15s mounted in the enclosure before it gets the cover panel put on.

          They did.

          Not a full launch, but they knocked it off.

              I'd take a guess at that one. The entire point of building the boxes is to hold the pressure. If they blow apart you didn't build a good enough box.

                  I've built a ton of enclosures over the years. hundreds.

                  Had one dude say that his enclosure "broke".

                  Now for one of my enclosures to break either the MDF has literally torn itself apart (the glue joint won't fail) or something else has happened. The chances of a glue joint taking a shit and the brad nails shearing in half is very slim.

                  I meet the guy and he plays the subs. Sure enough the enclosure is making noise.

                  He opens the trunk lid and we go to lift the enclosure out and inspect it.

                  It's wet.

                  We lift it out and put it on the tailgate of my truck then close his trunk lid.

                  It's broke.

                  The trunk lid ripped apart at the hinge and wasn't seating down against the trunk seal.

                  We had a storm and heavy rain. That did it.







                  When he'd play this car I'd also see the rear window separating from the roof as it all flexed. You could hear the window and roof slapping against one another.

                      I have put together a couple systems back in the day (home & auto) that may have contributed to some of my hearing loss. They were capable of NASA level decibel levels, but the music was clean and balanced. I just never got the whole crazy bass thing, but I have seen some impressive systems

                            They all work for me in Firefox.

                            I'm really interested in seeing the final port enclosure.
