Right, but I had other costs in there...if you look at just the cost of the sub, box, and modification costs, then it cost me $265 CDN or $220 USD. This is a lot less than I would have paid for the JL Stealthbox.

Well, I got the sub cover in last week and managed to finish up this weekend. I added a picture of the finished install. It seems that the colors differ slightly depending on whether the car came with the sub or not (the sub cover is a slightly different color), but I think it still looks good. Just the stock look I was going for. I also added a picture of the "adapter" I used to mount the sub.

I have a 5 door SVTF and my enclosure is alot different from the one you show. Does anyone know why that might be? I was going to try exactly waht you did, but none of that would work on mine. I can post pics of mine tomorrow if anyone is interested, and see if anyone has ideas for mine.
Thanks
Scott

Here is my enclosure that doesn't look like any of them in the "how to" articles. There is a big opening above (where the wire runs up to the amp) and to the left of the woofer. The back of mine also looks different.

Wow, you weren't kidding, that does look different. I can see a few problems here...

1. The two openings on top, you would have to seal somehow...either wood or fiberglass I'm thinking.
2. You can't use the cap on the back of the sub cause you don't have a cone there...
3. It looks like the volume of air is less than the other one, it might not be enough for a 10".

Honestly, I would just recommend going to www.svtsalvage.com and buying a new enclosure, it should fit the same (but look into this first). Sorry I couldn't help more, good luck.

PS. Can you scale down those pictures? They make the thread really hard to read .

I will check with SVT salvage. This enclosure is only about 3 inches deep, and so far I can't find a way to fit a 10" Alpine type S in there.
I will try to scale the pics down.
Thanks
