Subwoofer Boot

I'll try and recreate my old audio system install walkthrough here shortly.

Subwoofer Boot

Postby racerx3165 » Sun Dec 25, 2005 10:11 am

Has anyone on here made a boot for an aerio? I am going to start on mine on Tuesday when i get back to work, and was thinking i may make a mold just incase anyone else would want one. I am not sure what size i am going with but i am thinking of an 8 or 10 with .75 cu. ft. and i was going to make it on the drivers side but i may just make a matching one for the passenger side also.

Here this may help, i believe that it came from that section of a car being called the boot. http://www.cfsnet.co.uk/projects-speaker.html My main goal is to make the trunk space still as usuable as possible while adding some much needed bass.

Ooooohhh...that's what I've been trying to figure out how to do all this time...in fact I've even been considering using plexiglass to accomplish the same thing. But if you'll be having a mold for this then I'M IN!!!!

Just give me a price and space for the biggest sub you can fit on there (probably a 10")

Well if i use 3 layers of fiberglass and bondo them nice and smooth im guessing maybe 30-40$ in Materials unless i buy in bulk. Then im figuring that it takes roughly 1-3 hours for something like this to dry per layer depending on the weather, so im figuring that i can get away with about 6hrs a piece. Let me try and get started on the mold for mine on Tuesday and see how things work out and ill post some pics. I got a friend whos pretty good with an Airbrush i may have him try a little S on it to see how it turns out.

racerx3165,

That sounds like a great project! I would be in if I didn't have another subwoofer plan of my own in 'the pipe', aka my head, which hasn't been actually been started yet. :) And here I thought getting a new car would mean I have less car projects to work on... how little we know ourselves sometimes. :banghead:

i'm telling ya, it was much easier to make one like mine. all you need to really do to make it even better is put that amp on the underside and make sure your speaker has a nice cover on it and then you can still use all the space in there....and if you were so inclined you could use a different color of carpet than light grey.....

actually i put stuff in there all the time. suitcases go right over it just fine. anyway, that's why I suggest putting the amp underneat and a good grill on the speaker and you'd be set.
