Good job! I'm sure Scott will add this to the FAQ.

What did the sub box and cover cost you?

I paid $80USD (fellow member) for the sub box, and $20USD (svtsalvage) for the sub cover.

Thanks for the comments !

So does the other cover go over that one or are you leaving it open like that? If its the first one I'd like to see a picture of it in its enclosed state. But man...sweet how-to I was looking to find how to convert the box. Now I know! Thanks a bunch.

My sub cover should be coming in the mail in the next couple of days. Once I install it, I will add a picture to this thread. Might be a week or so.

Nice work. Looks great.

Did you also look at the JL Audio Stealthbox for the Focus? Was your setup cheaper? The Stealthbox looks pretty sweet. Has anyone installed a Stealthbox? How is it?

Ya, I looked at it...not for very long. The price is around $400-600 USD I believe. There is no way I would pony up that much cash. This setup cost me:

Stock 8" Enclosure - $100 CDN (shipped)
Materials for Install - $15 CDN
Rockford Fosgate P2 Punch 10" Sub - $100 CDN (good deal mind you)
Wiring Kit for Amp - $75 CDN
Install - $75 CDN (Including speaker wire for sub)
Sub Cover - $50 CDN ($20 USD for cover, $21USD shipping to Canada)

Total Cost (not including Amp) = $415 CDN

That is a LOT cheaper than it would be for the JL Stealthbox, and it will still look awesome (this $415 includes wiring kit and install). Speaking of which, I still haven't received the sub cover, I'm hoping today, but maybe early next week (it was sent USPS).
