Dimensions for well sub box

hey guys for the longest time when i first came to this site i wondered the measurements of the boxes that people put in the well area. well i got one and now im posting up what i got. its mad out of 3/4 inch MDF so each side view measurement includes the thickness of 1 1/2 inch of mdf (front and rear panels 3/4 + 3/4 = 1 1/2)

now with those dimensions, will the top of the box sit flush with the carpet in the back so you could still use the mounts for the t-top bag?

yes but i wouldnt recommend it. laying the bag with the big end of the ttops on the subs is just bad policy in my opinion. but if you have sub covers i might do it.

but i just flip down the rear seat and put the big end of the ttops toward the front of the car and still use the mounts on the "hump". i have dual amps and there is plenty of room to put the ttops in there either direction. i will post pics tomorrow of it in the car.

for the top panel I do this

I take out the rear plastic and lay it out on a peice of cardboard
make a rough trace
then make a rough cut,
then put the peice back in a slowly trim the cardboard away until it fits in perfect

then trace on to a peice of wood and cut it out that way it looks alot cleaner

are you talking about the cover to protect the subs from the ttops? if so why not just use the same dimensions i just gave and just use a thicker piece of mdf and route out enough to let the sub go in it?

look at the pic i attached
see the top panel the subs are in
that perfectly matches the plastics and follows the curves so there is no gaps or squared off edges

I built one to the same specs a few years back, I was able to use my t-top bag and crank it up with 2 10's in the box because of the angle the bag straps down at with the t-tops in it. subs never hit the bag.

oh ok you have a vert. thats a diff story isnt it? or do they have the same "well"? i just posted what my box dimensions are and its a glass hatch version like most third gens are.

either way what i posted is undoubtably going to help a lot of people out so i am feeling pretty proud that i finally contributed useful data to the site haha.

vert well is the same
and your demensions on the lower part of the box apear right on

I'm just saying for the top panel instead of squaring it off I over size it slightly compared to the lower part of the box and form fit it to the plastics

I've owned 5 different 3rd gen's and built several boxs for
them

and when I charge $400 for a box people want something that looks pro

i paid 150 and it was built by a pro. i guess if you want it to fit exactly to the plastics its worth another 250? that doesnt seem right. i only paid 75 for a trunk box when i had a car with a trunk. i would only pay 400 if the box was fiberglass and painted.

materials are only like 40-50 for some mdf maybe another 20 if you dont have sealer or nails. the rest is time (to cut and nail and seal) mine is held together by some nails i think from an air nailer then the seams are sealed with caulk or something similar.

im sure your boxes are nice. but what justifies 400? i would pay maybe 250 for a really nice mdf box for the well (covered in some nice material with a logo or something) maybe 400 if it had an amp rack as well. but in my opinion i wouldnt pay 400 just to get rounded corners that no one with notice.

im not trying to be rude but your doesnt look any better or more professional then mine. but then again we arent packing logs as bass tubes like that one post. thanks for coming in and mentioning the rounded corners.

$400 canadian

I went to Beam Riders(stereo shop up here in Canada)
they quoted $600 plus tax to do the same box,

part of that was for specing the box to the subs, I include that in my $400

I didn't pay the $600 I just built my own and started charging people $400

for a standard box(square/rectangle) to spec I charge $150
and thats only a few quick cuts on the table saw, 2 holes and some screws, plus covering, but i leave that part to the girlfriend

If you look at my box notice the lack of wiring
there is alot more than you think going on under that panel

yea this box is to spec for 2 12 inch jl audio w0 subs. my amps set on the "hump" not on the box. they are jensen 400 watt amps (2 of them, one per sub.)

the wiring for those come out the side so without a custom amp rack for them to slide in i cant hide the wires. its still a very clean install considering everything. i am begining to figure out how to hide the wires using some plans im drawing up for an amp rack though.

i didnt notice you from canada. i imagine up there things for third gens is even harder to find then here. i guess that justifies the price. but isnt 400 canadian like 13 dollars u.s.? haha just kidding

im a little confused by your second picture there, the side profile. it sh ows the top of the bottom part of the box as being 9 1/8 inch across. but the bottom it shows as 7 5/8, although it looks to be the same width as the top part.

ok, apparently this box has about 2.28 cubic feet without factoring in the 8 inch slant, so probably around 2.4 altogether, without subs. which is enough for my rl-p's

Now, are these measurements also good for a 4th gen? I got one of those q-logic boxes where the subs are at an angle, and I would much rather it flat (looks better).

the box is sloped just like the well area. its packed in ther your not going to get any bigger unless its taller. i heard somewhere that poly-fil (stuff in pillows) will "trick" subs into thinking a smaller space is larger by doing something to the sound waves.

this box isnt good for a 4th gen as far as i know.

I'm talking about the top, from that diagram, the top of the box is flat (where the subs mount).

just in case anyone's plannin on runnin out to do this like myself, make sure you bring a buddy with with you to pick up the mdf board. They're heavy, real heavy, and they're a real bitch to get off the rack then onto a truck. Those 41x97 sheets are hard to work with. Learned this on the hard way.

well, I took 89vert's idea with the cardboard pattern piece, but I'm no carpenter, nor cabinet maker, so this was just a learn as I go sorta thing. It fits in nicely, and looks good, if you have the carpet still on your trim panels, it helps to cover up any gaps, which is on reason why mine looks so tight. I also used like a black carpet to cover the top with in an effort to match the rear hatch area. But the first thing you may notice is that it's more of a platform than I box........I got lazy. It weighs less and was less work. However I have yet to see how it sounds beacsue I have a shorted power cable, that needs replacing. When it is I'll crank it up, if it sounds like crap and everything's rattling around, I guess I'll have to pull it out and finish it.........I had to try the VroomVroom87Z28 way first


Pearl91GTA, these are two 10s, and I have quite a bit of mdf board left over, I'd be willing tory and whip one up for ya, for a modest price.......very modest.

sorry I didn't mean to post that, I had intended to but then changed the message and forgot about the image

that was where I screwed up and there's a bit of a gap, but like I said, I'm no carpenter.

How much air will this box move? Is it good for either 10's or 12's?

Just picked up an 88 Camaro and would love to get a box for that rear well area.

I was wondering if in a notchback there would be any size problems or bad vibrations from the fiberglass hatch?

Those boxes look great. I was wondering if you all figured in the amount of space the subwoofer will displace with it's frame and magnet. I'm not trying to be **** but I was wondering.

Question: will there be a significant disadvantage to using 1/2 inch MDF as opposed to 3/4"?

Has anybody got any pics of sub boxes or plates with the amp built in?

I built a box according to these specs today with my buddy and it doesn't fit all that well. The sides are a bit tight so I'm gonna try to take an inch off if I can. And it sits way to high ....about an inch or so above the top of the well. That won't work with my t-tops. I'm gonna have to try to cut 2 inches off the top so it sits low enough...hopefully it won't get too short for the sub to fit.

Sorry I don't have the cut measurements from mine. I modified the one pictured a bit though. Had to cut about 2 inches off the top to get it to sit where I like it in my trunk for the t-tops. I also put a little kick-in on the back about 14" wide, 2" deep and 2" tall to clear the power hatch motor better. I'll have pics up on my company website of the box in a week or two.
