That enclosure looks really well made. You saved over US$500 by doing that yourself. The WickedCAS Sub boxes they make for our vehicles are great quality, and worth the money, but it's always cheaper for people to make it themselves if they have the skill.

If the Sub is a 500 Watt one like the cone says, I'm surprised the factory Amp can drive it. The factory sub was 40W if I remember correctly? Although the 500W is probably the peak output (which is totally different to continually RMS Wattage), but still impressive.

My Sub is 500W RMS (1000W max), so I definitely needed the additional Amp, which is working well.



Thanks mate, yes I am fortunate enough to have the ability to create stuff like this, first attempt was back in the late 70's early 80's decking out a Falcon panelvan :) My grandfather was a carpenter / cabinet maker and although I didn't pursue that as a career I have been banging nails into timber, and cutting stuff up since I was old enough to hold a hammer and saw so it has come in handy over the years :) I read up on the specs of replacement subs that others have used and this is pretty much on par with them. I am surprised at just how good it does sound actually and at just under AU$110 shipped it was a bargain :) I have a grill on order for it from o/s as well but I made up a temporary one in the meantime so it doesn't get damaged :)
