Default All in a day's work (Enclosure).. updated pics

Well I've got the enclosure pretty much to the sanding/bondo stage. Not a super expensive system but it will give me some more punch. Once the enclosure is done and painted WRB the install begins

Head Unit - KENWOOD KDC-MP528 MP3 CD
Subs - 2 x KENWOOD KFC-W2525DVC 10" (Running them inverted)
Amp - KENWOOD KAC-7202 2-Channel

Thumbs up

I really like how you made the small extensions for the mounts on the amplifier, nice touch. I really am looking forward to some pics of it in WRB.

your enclosures are always nice. But you must blow through some money since you build a new one every 2 months

Thanks... they don't really cost that much.. maybe $100-$150 in materials.. it is all just time in sanding.. plus like anything.. once you get it done, you are not satisfied

there is one layer of mat around the outside.. once I have the outside smooth, I will cover it all with a garbage bag and then add more mat to the inside for strength..

P.S. stupid question here.. If I am running two subs in the same enclosure.. they need their own separate enclosures, or can they all go into the same space...

Same enclosure if you are bridging the subs.

Good work.

My calculations were done the following way.

The subs I am running require 1 cubic foot each in a sealed enclosure... My enclosure is 3 ft long by 1 ft deep. So if the enclosure was 1 foot tall and a box shape we would be at 3 cubic feet. Since my enclosure is 9" tall in the highest place and definately not a box shape I figure I am pretty darn close to 2 cubic feet. I may even be a little less than the 2 cubic feet, but I am running the subs inverted which require slightly less volume.

Not an exact science but I figure it is pretty darn close.

The only issue is that the bottom of the enclosure is MDF.. it doesn't take real well to water

Use sand or packing peanuts instead of water if you don't want to warp the MDF.

throw a layer of resin on the bottom board....it will make it even stiffer.

Also, have you considered adding a legacy DIN pocket to your dash? It makes the dash look much more finished.

I use packing peanuts. Never tried sand, thing would be fn heavy and a bitch of a clean up.. By the way nice work.

+1 for meticulous work, I'm still loving the mounting for the amp.
