ok, i know with both of these you can customize the enclusure, but which one would be better for 10w6v2's? and could anyone customize the boxes for my trunk to take up MINIMUM sapce? like if i gave you something to imprint off of, or something, would that be possible?
what kind of car do you have? just curious. if i know some1 with that kind of car maybe i could borrow it. but you do know fiberglass enclosures take alot of time money and skill and it would cost you quite a bit.
your talking about a form fitting fiberglass box right? first off i cant do it i dont know anyone with that car.... secondly a shop would eat up that 450 and be ready for the main course. if im understanding what you want id prolly charge about 500 to do that type of work. its alot of work to do... unless your talking about something else? or do you just want a mold of the car and the rest of the box be mdf... id only charge like 200 for that, much easier as you dont have to worry about the perfect smoothness and roll of the curves. but im sorry i cant do it without the car...
well you'll need a galon of resin $33 galon of body filler $20 fiberglass mat $25 primer filler... idk actually how much it costs. paint ?? quite a bit for good paint unless your doing carpet over it.. or vinal and you need MDF too. $20
and lots of time and patience. you'll need to know what your doing. if u need them i have prolly 10 or more fiberglass links ranging from idk what the h3ll im doing to expert.
well when you apply the body filler it will no longer be one color lol. it takes so long because it takes fiberglass hours to cure and a tone of sanding. its much harder than it looks. also make sure its good and sturdy, bracing can definetly help.
why does it take so long. you can't take short cuts right.i don't want any crazy designs or colors. what color would it turn out to be if i didn't do anything to it? houw would i get the cub feet exactly?
if yoru going out of the way for fiberglass. i think you should paint it...MHO
and a rule is (unless its like a big SPL sub then dont even use fiberglass) pushed down hard with your thumb, if nothing flexes your good. me, i add just a tad more just incase lol. add bracing. i used 1n 1/4 inch down rod for bracing. and the curved areas will be stronger than a flat area.
okay my last post for the night lol. tape off your car ( you dont want resin on your car) then first draw an ouline of where the enclosure will touch the car. (with marker) mix the resin with the hardener and aply with fiberglass matt to that area ussing cheap paint brushes. buy like a ton of them lol. i get 50cent ones. 2 inches wide.make sure no air bubbles are in the fiberglass anywhere. oh and dab dont wipe it on. also dabbing removes air bubbles. now once its pretty thick let it cure. not take it out and w/e whent past your line cut with a dremel or jigsaw or w/e. now take a strechy material or something ( lots like fleece) and rap it around it... oh before this mount your woofer ring. use dowel rods and hot glue gun to mount the ring at the height and angle you like. THEN wrap the material around it and use the hot glue gun to hold it. now apply the resin to the material until its fully soaked... let it cure... that'll get ya started. anymore questions will have to be answered by some1 else ro wait til morrow. night
resin body filler fiberglass matt u will need like polyester or soething to cover the box base tape aluminum foil or some kind of painters matt so u can protect ur carpet. unless u want to paint it then u will need paint
