Starting to look like something resembling a sub enclosure.

Here is the start on the passenger side midbass enclosure. I will be using an 8" scanspeak discovery driver.







I may change the angle of the ring......just trying to get an idea of how it will be.




This side is next. A bit tighter, but still plenty of room.

6 layers of 2oz mat done. If the weather holds when this is cured I will pull the enclosure and make the top and front in the garage. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Enclosure mounted in the car. Very solid.







I love it when a plan comes together.

Ring mounted and fleece stretched.





From the driver headrest.



From the passenger headrest. The steering column was lowered to avoid as much obstruction as possible.
