Sup fellow xB cruisers. I wanted to post pics of my custom made sub enclosure and the install.

This is the begining, after the cutting of the wood of course.



Here is after I put the top on.



After the Fabric is glued on.



The amp plate is in place. :cool: :cool: :) :cool:



The wires I used.



Installed with seat down, and up.





There we go with the install of the custom box in my camo Box. By the way, the pics dont lie that the amp is yet to be hooked up. Im getting a subplug2 from gordon in the AM. He is awesome with quickness of responses and shipping.

A+ for effort but I dont like how it doesnt contour to the shape of cargo floor. It just leaves big gaps on the side. Something like this would look cleaner:

I plan on doin somethin like that for my second attemp. This is my first try at box making, and it didnt turn out exactly as I had hoped, but was a great learning experience. I plan on doing a fiberglass enclosure soon, just need to get some more money and supplies. Maybe next month.... :D

Thats the Elemental Designs amp enclosure. It only holds two amps underneath the cover. It can easily be modified to fit a sub also.

This is cover open:



This is some of there work in my buddy's xA:



Just tell Chris @ Elemental Designs that B1rd sent you...

Re: Custom Box build/install update.

Here is an update on my install. I took more pics, so Boom put the trident away. I got my subplug 2 today in the mail, after a slight confusion on the delivery address. I forgot to take pics of that part, sorry boom.
So let’s start.
Here is the fuse and hookup to the battery.



I did such a good job on the install I can hardly tell the wires are there (pats self on back) there is only 2 places you can see the wires from the open.

1.

2.

Here is a pic of the amp wired, I don’t know bout you guys, but I can’t really tell it’s wired up at all.



And the other side.



That’s bout it for the amp install. I have a few other pics that I’m posting too.

Better pics of the B



My fuzz buster!



The subs, they are firing away but the cam is too good to get a fuzzy pic of them so I tried to catch some dirt bouncing on them. Didn’t work either.



These are dings from the bastard neighbor; there is one more on the driver’s door.



And his POS!!! AKA, the culprit


And here is my wife’s ride, it’s a 00 Durango.



The engine bay, cover is in the house I’m going to cut out the logos and put a green neon underneath.



Think that’s bout all the pics I have for now. Ill update later.

LoL, I knew someone was gonna make a comment about the dirty engine bay. I wish mine looked like yours.

I like the fiberglass dude, looks hella tight. Thanks for the props, and info.
