yeah build it in the trunk lol. As for the sealant i always use silicon. Dont put your sub in the box right away give it 24 hrs to dry. A torn surround i forget but someone on here answered that before post it as a question again.

ps...please dont tell me you tore you eclipse ti?

its acoustic insulation i used it years ago when i built my fist subwoofer boxes to boost the airspace the woofer saw....i bought it at radioshack not sure how thick it was anymore but if its 1 inch thick i can make the box size smaller and adjust to do two layers of the acoustic stuff for 7 cf box space the sub will see

Hey sub. Try fixing that subwoofer with some Bycicle Rubber Glue. It comes in a Small tube and ur supposed to rub it around the patches on the bycicle tube, but i the genious, decided to use it on my subwoofer. And it worked perfect, its like a strong rubber glue that comes out in a clear jelly and drys a tad green. But it honestly worked like a charm. Wierd? haha :P. I got it in a little bycicle tube repair kit thing with some patches n glue's :P

when you build this box be carefull if the sub reaches full excursion before the rated power you will blow the sub if you push it too hard

my buddies piut a mtx 10 in a 4 cf box at 63 hz and pushed twice it rated power in it many many times and its fine but you never no because it puts more stress on a sub the lower the note which in my case will be 55 hz on the same amp

lets just do it this way unless you want to make the port removeable and leave room to change the box size with poly sheets and diferent port lengths.....if not lets do it this way.....just make double sure it fits in your car before you start all this
