Yes please make some plans and post article. I think this could be modified with a fiberglass back to save weight and give more internal volume. What size driver are you using?

If I remember correcly, I grounded it near the green terminal block (behind the back seat and next to the spare tire). I have no engine noise issues.

ZeroChief,

How deep is the upper part of the box (where the sub would go)? I am looking at the JL Audio 8w0, which has a mounting depth of ~4". I noticed that the Pioneer you used is just under 3", and was curious how much clearance you had.

Ya, that's what I did for mine. Taped off the area, and used the actual hole as the mold for the fiberglass enclosure. fits nice and tight and i estimate it to be about .6 cubic feet or so.

i made the entire thing fiberglass, with matting on the back and bottom, and fleece on the front. mdf and dowel speaker supports. I would post pictures, but I can't seem to track them down.
