*UPDATE* My Own Thunderbox build/install *completed*

since i havent found a prefabbed sub box that fits my 08 i decided to venture out to the shop and build my own. first test fit and it looks pretty friggin good IMO..



ill be finishing up the face of the box and finalize the mounting today, also need to run into town to get the carpeting.

pics pic and more pics.

this is the bracket that i had to fashion up. It uses the factory bolt holes for the stock sub, and it fits like a glove.



installed

this the bottom bracket (nothing special, but very important)


box with panel blocks, pre carpet

last test fit, pre carpet

post carpet and final check.









Well got this far last night. Was hoping to make the 8hr trek home tonight so i can install the sub, wire it all up and enjoy, buut my sister thought it would be a good day to make me an uncle. so the rest of the pics in a few days.[clap]

Thanks! The trunk floor will be the next project since i hate that formed fabric spare tire cover and the factory carpet is a little short by the new box.

Excellent job man! How much airspace does it have?
i used the calculators on "www.the12volt.com" and came up with .76 +/- .02

MTX recommendes .75cu ft for my sub in a sealed enclosure.[thumb]

Is that before or after sub displacement?

You can always throw in 25% of a 1lb. bag of poly-fill in the box. Just make sure that is loosely packed.
