Here you go. Pics of it all done



I'll get a cleaner picture today with the trunk completely empty. I also made it removable. All i have to undo is the bracket to the tail light and power/ground/remote from the amp which is located on the back side of the subwoofer box. Just in case I need that extra space for some reason. Turned out really well I had to modify the corner by the seat slightly because my measurements were about 1/8'' to long. Easy fix though.

I'll PM you more details later when I have a chance to go get measurements. I thought I had them written down (probably do) but I can't find them right now.

They sell a little box that fits in the conner you can put your sub in depending on what kind of focus you have.

Fiberglass enclosures aren't very expensive to make they are just very time consuming. You can get resin and matting fairly cheap at a home depot.

I suggest that one uses tape, foil and, mold release on the back-side so the enclosure so it is not married to the car forever.
