the subs sound great, and the RF amp is pushing out 696w RMS. Im really happy how it turned out, it fits perfectly, shows no wires, and sounds great!

The subs sound perfect sofar! very precise

MORE PICS.....










When i did the initial layout, i did not take exact volume measurements, but i took the areas of sections and added them up and i did end up w/ a volume very close to spec.

That there is a ****ing clean enclosure! I really like it. Its easy on the eyes and generous on the trunk space. :thumbup:

Would you consider making boxes for other people?
You should really consider doing this. :thumbup: :D

Also, what size are your subs? I'm interested in running two 10's.

Thats freaking NICE!! :) you should mass produce them :p
damn, you'd make a lot of money if you seriously sell these :D. but that would eliminate your uniqueness from other celi's that would have this set up. very nice :thumbup:

haha, my girlfriend said that i should sell them....but honestly, it takes ALOT of work to do what i did. I think the materials alone for the box were around $125, and i spent at least 20-25 hrs on the project......and thats just the box.

They are 10" infinity reference subs, the amp is a rockford fosgate 501s. 12" woofers would have taken up too much space in the trunk. Im very satisfied w/ the sound and clarity. Before i had a jbl 1200.1 amp (over 1200w rms) and two rockford power hx2's (two years ago)...i really began to miss the bass so i downgraded to a simple, sophisticated setup.

When i graduate grad school in 09 and get a job, i'll be selling it b/c i'll be buying myself a graduation present (mercedes c230 sport), so until then......be jealous.

Thanks for checking my works out.

Matt.
