ok, make a fiberglass shell of were you want it. What you are about to see is a huge half ass layer of fiberglass.

I turned that layer into a mold. So here is what I did for the final shell. the one covered in tin foil and tape is the mold.

Every one here knows how to make MDF Sub receesed mount rings right?

posted by  magot

Honestly, I've never heard of them...but if it's just metal rings for mounting, then it sounds pretty straightforward...

:stupid:

metal?....MDF is wood....medium density fibreboard, is the actual name, if im not mistaken. Recessed rings allow you to mount the sub flush with the box...rather then having it stick out...

posted by  dodgerforlife

I think I can see it, but I wouldn't have a clue on where to begin making them...

hehe, he's the one with the camera, and apparently the time, so i'll let him do it lol

Since when do you speak for everyone? Personally I've been following along and am interested in this, and obviously he is interested in this kind of thing and is wanting/willing to help show people how it's done. I actually congradulate him for his willingness to help.:thumbs:

Look at the few first posts. I would personally like to see it done myself.

posted by  newyorker

Post up some new pics. I'd like to see the progress too.

First few posts? Since when does Hobos opinion count as more then one person? (as he was the only one in the first few to say he didnt' care).

posted by  car_crazy89

K, I need to get a pic of the ring I made. But here is how it go. The green line represents the bottom ring width. The red is the upper ring, the sub should slide right through it. I am going to make a nother one this weekend just for you guys.:mrgreen:
