    i was told to lay the tin down so that the tape will not stick to the carpet when i go to pull it out later.

    what you think of the process so far ?

    and what you think about making the sides and back out of glass ?

    Cant see much in the last picture since its too dark. I would suggest making the complete box out of fiberglass if youre comfortable with it. Check out the link at the bottom, it explains everything really clearly.

    didnt get any pics today...got a late start because i was trying to figure out how to get the sides to hold up. I eventually cut some cardboard and stuck in there to mock the sides... got the matt stuck and finished a layer to the boards on the side, but the back is being a ***** since i only have 3 inch. of space to work with and have to bend over the seat and reach back and i get covered in resin... ohh well i got all the back taped and got the matt stuck but not soaked with resin. Tomorrow since im off work im hoping finish the back, put another layer on the sides back and bottom let dry, then pop it out and cut the top from the MDF board i got. Then finish it all off with propping the MDF board in there and joining it to the sides and back by glassing it... then thurs. i should be able to do layer after layer till it gets thick enough on all sides and maybe start the front.

    got the piece pulled out of the truck(thank god for the foil it just lifted right out) and set it up on a bench in the garage and added another layer...so that equals about 3 all the way around...its pretty stiff now.

    tomorrow if i get all the layers done im going to put the top on...im wondering how im going to split the chambers up because you cant have one big chamber for 2 subs right ? so any ideas will be very helpful..should i cover sheets of matt in resin and press to top and bottom to form a wall or just make it out of wood ?

    yea just split them if you want or you can look up on the sub's website and get the cubic liters for the 2 sub's if you split them you might have uneaven spaces between them so they will pump different.

    i if you need strength in the middle cut MDF and make a strut.
