So I was browsing my local Kmart with my measuring tape as usual and stumbled upon an odd sized kitchen sauce pot. I had just purchased my 4" Peerless HDS mids and needed an enclosure for them. Apparently Faberware makes a mini melting pot. It measures 4" wide and is 2.5" deep. It turned out to be a perfect size enclosure for the Peerless and I could not be happier with the test fit thus far.

Enjoy, here are some pics

lol, if it works, do it. I would dampen it with some deadening material so it doesnt resonate. but no reason that cant work.

I can't help but think there's got to be a tupperware or similar type product that would work just as well, cheaper, and won't resonate.
Let us know how it all sounds once you're done.

Yah my main concern is how warm will it get because the inside of a car can get quite toasty. They are made of stainless steel so with the aluminum cone I think it looks pretty sweet. As for dampening it I had that idea too... I would hate for a loose speaker wire to short out the stereo if it hit the steel!

Already tried it and the summer heat melted the plastic and made it very soft and bendable... Check my install log
