This picture is great, seeing how big the sub looks there makes it all the more amazing to me that the whole enclosure is so well integrated.
The space either shrinks or the woofer gets much bigger when you are test fitting it
I can believe you got double takes, if it were not for the missing glovebox handle I never would have figured it out at my meet here in September.... and yes, I also had to squat down and take a look. Not so much to see if the sub was visible, but to really take in just how hidden and stealth the install is.This is the finished product.....at Finals, even when I pointed at the enclosure and explained I had a sub 'in there' - I received some double takes......they would squat down to see if they could see the cone 'hanging out' below the dash. Pretty much incredulity was the common reaction. Some had to hear it to believe it.
Yep, you'd never know a sub was in the dash from vibration or buzzing.I demoed a variety of songs at varying output levels and didn't hear any vibrations or buzzes in the dash.
Jason, your car looks phenomenal. Mark, as usual did a killer job on the Audi.
I was curious as to what the reasoning for swiching from MDF to FG for the sub? Was the MDF only there for molding purpose? Is the FG final due to weight?
Do you know what the advantages are to using the two types of material and not just one or the other? Never seen that before.I had a question come up about the material used for the rings for the mid bass drivers. Mark used 0.75” HDPE, apparently also known as King Starboard, that cuts very smoothly - physically attached to Type 1 ABS. The rings were drilled and tapped to accept the screws securing the speakers to the door.
Don't know this for sure, but I used some HDPE on my mid rings and over time, they cracked. The metal behind them was not quite flat and I didn't catch that, so maybe he used ABS to prevent that???Do you know what the advantages are to using the two types of material and not just one or the other? Never seen that before.

Interesting - good to know. Thanks!Mark used it to provide extra support for the hdpe, which is a softer material than type 1.
He uses the type 1 as an anchor point for the tapped and threaded holes. Also a firmer landing against the door, less chance of warping.
