    I was going to mention about the hot glue, but i see it already happened.

    It happen to me too, i was thinking that hot glue was permanent, but i guess after hot temps and movement it just gives way.

    Yea, It didn't hold, but that's fixed now. Now I'm currently working on my custom fiberglass sub box. From my initial mesurements, my box will be about 1 cubic foot. Kicker recomends anywhere from 1 ft^3 to 2.4 ft^3 so volume isn't a concern. I had a little excess fabric i couldn't tuck away, so I made that little ledge from the top of the mount ring, this works perfectly in my trunk, and I'm very satisfied with it. Well here's the pics. BTW, that's just felt.

    That looks nice! It's a good idea to hide the monitor away

    the new sub enclosure again, there is a green tint to the fabric, but the flash brings that out lol. I messed up a bit on the top on carpeting, and now to vacuum my trunk.

    edit:sorry mods, these should be the right size.

    Updates: Subwoofer enclosure is being sealed... again. Hopefull this will get a real good seal, i'm using a draft stopper by dow called "Great Stuff". I also went to frys last night after finding i had a gift certificate laying around, and got me a USB wifi card. I'm typing this in the car, this is a totally new level for my carpc, with weather, news, and updating w/o pulling out my HD. Well I'll post some pics in the next few days with the completed trunk and interior.

    got it sealed?? hows the sound compared to the sub against the trunk? (best way to have the sub in a semi-permanent enclosure with least amount of cancellation)

    Hey guys, it sounds great. It not only is a full sound, but also kicks the back of every seat. It's a very versatile sub, thanks kicker! It doesn't effect the computers performance as far as I know. Occasionaly it skips, but it's an old 3.5" hard drive. I didn't know if anybody was still checking this out, but i just actually did a little work on it today and now i have my TS in dash. I'm headed out to go work on it a little more, i'll take pics and post them tonight.
