I would call around to car audio shops in your area to get quotes from them. The Se-x subs really shine when paired with a properly tuned box.

You want a box at around 2.0 cuft tuned to 33Hz. You will be amazed at how much better your sub performs all around but especially with the lows.
That's not too bad. Ill probly try and talk to your guy. I'm not too far from Tyler.

Yeah. I will let you know as soon as he gets back. I may have him build a new box for my sundown X10's i'm ordering.

I'd like to clean up the trunk as well. I hate the flappy carpet thing that's in there.

You can do a wood floor conversion. Or get the rubber mat made for our cars.

I have the weathertech trunk liner in mine and absolutely love it. I actually just put the Weathertech digital fit floormats in the front of my car as well. All amazing products.

Hmm now does that sit on top the carpet that comes stock? Or does it completely replace it?

It can set on top of the carpet or you can remove it. I removed my carpet thing and put a piece of that thick poster board like a presentation board there so it is level. But when my large enclosure is in it doesn't matter anyways as it sets up on both side of the trunk on the trunk floor.

Where'd you get? And also does it help prevent the box from sliding?

No but Velcro or my favorite new thing Gorilla tape does. My amps aren't even mounted with screws anymore lol. I just take and fold a piece of gorilla tape and place it between whatever I don't want to move and there is zero movement even with aggressive turning.

The weathertech mats are made of a hard protective plastic not a squishy one.

And I ordered all my mats and the trunk liner directly from weathertech.
