Ok... got a little bit of an aesthetics problem here.

My Tahoe (The Power Plant) is getting a bit of a redesign and I had some questions on how to implement some of it...

Right now here are the specs:

Pioneer ACH-P4200DVD headunit
Behringer DCX2496 processor
CDT ES-06+ midbass
TC Sounds TC9 12" subs x2 in ported 3-3.5^3
Phoenix Gold Xenon 200.4 (bridged on HLCDs)
Phoenix Gold Xenon 200.4 (bridged on midbass)
Sundown 3500d (subs)

So, I'm gonna swap out the CDTs for my Anarchys again, I think, but that's not the thing.

TC9s are going to be moved eventually to my 370Z, along with the 3500d.

New setup:

Zapco Z8 processor
Zapco ZX-6.5kd amplifier
JBL W15GTi mkII (x3)

I'm gonna be removing the 3rd row seating for the new subs. Gonna be a big box, obviously. But I don't want to just do a boring old 3-in-a-line slot-ported box. I wanna do something different. Not to mention, two of my JBLs are silver dustcap, and one is black dustcap. I know it's not a big deal, but it's aesthetics. So I want to try to figure out a way to mount one of them inverted, but these suckers are deep. I think 10" deep. So I was thinking of a box with the center sub inverted, but sort of... I dunno, countersunk. Like the face would have to be compound in a way that the center of the shelf is lower than the outside. Of course, firberglass would be the best way to do this, but I'm afraid building a huge box like that out of fiberglass may be beyond my capability. Probably looking at 8-10 cubes, but I'm going to have to play with all that and decide.

Any ideas for hiding the dustcap on one of these subs?

Here's what I'm talking about, for reference:

Nice set up. My only two suggestions is look/Google custom sub woofer installs and look under images. Then doodle. My best ideas come from doddling nothing in particular. Let the mind just wander. Oh it definitely has to be some form of plexi since you mentioned aesthetics. Other than that just look other ideas and incorporate them into your design. I'm sure you'll find a killer design with all that space
