Man I wish I would have taken pics of some of the cars I have seen.

Hell, I am not even going to lie, I wish I would have taken pics of some of my first work! My wiring was always pretty decent, but I remember my first box was made out of plywood, carpet on it was regular house carpet, I filled it with cotton balls, and I didn't have a jig saw so I cut the 12" holes out with a drill bit!

(That is right....one drill bit, one hole at a time all the way around a 12" circle!)

:biggrin:

Oh hell yeah, cardboard port, that is awesome! We made my box absolutely enormous for the 2-12" RF Punch's I was installing.....so large it didn't fit in the trunk, so what is the logical thing to do? We took a circular saw and cut about 4 inches out of the middle of the box, and glued/screwed it back together! :biggrin:

One of my buddies had a custom 12 ga. power wire running his amp! :biggrin:

same here, wish i woulda took pics back then. from a friend who couldnt figure why his amps kept shutting off, he had it grounded with a peice of romex house wire, to my dumbass friend who build a box for 2 cheap 15"s to go in a BMW 325 but didnt factor the trunk opening so he just put the box the back seat.

my neighbor still likes to run his amp that requires 4 gauge, he uses 12 gauge and when his new subs werent loud like his old ones cuz he order the wrong ohm voice coils so he just hooked 1 voice coil up on one sub and put the other one in the house

my first box i thought well the bigger the better so i went to walmart and bought two pioneer free air tens then went home took 3 sheets of 4 by 8 chipboard and constructed the finest box you ever saw (in bizarroo world) it was 4ft by 6ft by 2ft and i sealed the subs inside then cut out a one foot hole for a port. i barely fit it into my 80 honda hatchback and when i hooked it up to my 150 watt turbo amp it sounded like two whales humpin good times right there
