    Gauging interest for Custom compact sub box

    I'm trying to see if there is interest in custom made compact sub box. I build boxes that take up very little trunk space but interior volume is 1 cubic foot. I always shoot for 1 cubic foot because it is a great size for most 10" subs and 12" subs. I have been doing fiberglass boxes since 2006. I started with the GTO since there trunk is so small to start with. I build boxes for the Camaro ,Charger ,Challenger, 300, Tundra, GTO, G6 and adding more models. If you do a google search for Intense auto works you will find feed back from LS1GTO.com and see more pics of my work. My website is getting redesigned right now so there is nothing on it yet. If i get enough interest i will sign up as a sponsor for this site. I always have my customers pay using Paypal since it is the most trusted way to send money.

    How much internal volume will be available exactly?

    Those look nice. I'm trying to stay away from putting a sub in the trunk. But a nice out of the way side box might change my mind.

    I am sweating this one out for a little while longer ,this could shape up nicely when more interest with your concept appears ...
    although established in it's origins of the heavily modded custom auto world .Personally I have always liked this Idea utilized with a sub..//

    The challenge will be making the fiberglass walls dead enough to not resonate at frequencies up to 125hz, and finding a sub that actually sounds good in the space and depth requirements. Manufacturer recommended specs are designed with compromise for size in mind, with sound quality being a second priority. A good sound absorption pad will be needed to absorb higher frequency harmonics to reduce wall resonance and backwave distortion.

    I totally agree with those ideas given the restraints of the allowable space of a fixed enclosure .
    so if we do the math considering resonance and accounting for this issue a little more depth , May attribute to better SQ.
