I like how you mounted that sub, that was very simple and effective.

I am looking for something similar. Can you create an enclosure for the sub for me? I have a 2010 but i think its pretty much the same and should fit no problem. Let me know if you can do it and how much it would be.

Thanks Bing I have an 03 MDX I'm going to be starting on in a few weeks and this has given me some great ideas. I can hardly wait to see how much room I have in the upper dash and in the center console. I'm looking for a good place to mount some JL 6w3's. Also want to run a center in the dash with the Audio Control ESP-3.
One question can you point me in a good direction to find vinyl match for my dash, My MDX is Black on Black.

its really hard to be honset, i have a bunch of sample books and i just flip through and find the closest match both color and pattern, sometimes, you cant find the right color, in that case, the best way is to get a pattern that match and go to your local body shop supply place and have them mix you some SEM in a can and dye it.

Thanks, I wish I had more store fronts locally.
One more question :)
When glassing to plastic panels such as a pilliars or kick panels do you think bulldog would work as a good for a adhesion promoter so the glass would stick? About a year ago I tryed to use stock plastics in a set of pods and the glass didnt really stick. I thought maybe if I used the bulldog it would. Bulldog if your not familiar is used to prep plastic/abs for paint prep.
Love the blue plastic trick, 15 years ago i used that card board panel seem cover for wall paneling but didnt quite work as well as the "blue plastic" I love stories that start with "back in the day"

you have to rough the area up and sometimes drill small holes for the stuff to grab to...

Yeah I tried cleaning it with a wax/ degreaser prep and then roughed it up with 60 grit but no drilled holes. I thought about drilling after of coarse "after".
I have some extra kick and apillar panels from my junk yard of dc5 parts im going to experiment with the bulldog multiple coats and then a good high build primer and of coarse some small drill holes and a roughed up surface.
im on my way now to Joanne for some "ponte" material.

the drilling through the hole is one way to do it, but i find that if you rough it up good, and allow the filler to harden completely first near the joints, it does fine, but the hole and push filler thru method is tried and true. :)

This has been the inspiration for my install. Using some JL slash series amps, Cleansweep with CL-SSI, and some high energy hertz speakers. Copied the sub enclosure install, turned out great!
