I have had my V for a few weeks now and ever since I drove it off the lot I have been contemplating what kind of box I was going to build; I wanted to maintain as much trunk space as possible. i was going to utilize the "spare tire" well, but decided to build one that goes against the passenger side of the trunk. It will house a JL 12w3v3.
I removed the trim panel to ensure that my glass layer flat and to make sure I didn't get any resin on or inside my car.

The mold removed from the panel. There are a few holes and thin areas, but now i am able to work with it a little easier

I trimmed the excess and made a notch for the trunk light. From their I glassed a piece of MDF onto the base and secured my MDF speaker ring, making sure the depth correct.

Then I wrapped speaker grill cloth and secured it with CA glue. I found that although soaked fleece is stronger, grill cloth is able to make a better seal to the fiberglass mold and MDF (i don't want air leaks!)


From there, i coated the grill cloth in a layer of resin to make it firm, then i began to lay down the glass. the Inside has 5 layers of 2oz fiberglass mat and the outside has 7 layers of 2oz fiberglass matt


Lastly, I wrapped the box in black carnet and packed it with polyfill. To secure the box to the trunk, i removed the tie down hooks and mounted the box to the factory holes.

Oh and the black stuff that is inside the box, it is sound deadener.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask away :)
