I buy all my fiberglass stuff from http://www.uscomposites.com/ and I reccomend the B-440 polyester resin, it gives you the extra play you need, and if you add more hardener it'll set up as fast as you like without problems, do NOT under any circumstances ever buy the crappy resin from home depot or lowes, that stuff takes forever to dry, it doesnt sand smooth at all, and it sucks to work w ith.
I gotta ask, is there anything wrong with mounting the 6 1/2" woofer in the factory door panel location and then flush mounting the tweeter in the door plastic next to the woofer?
I keep having people tell me to build pods but I dont think its necessary...
but it is funny you should bring this up....ive been really thinking hard about doing my own fiberglass box, there arent any boxes built that have enough room for the subwoofer I like, and there are too many curves that have to be there for an MDF box. I do well with my hands, came from a construction background, and crafting or building things is one of my strongest points. (after I took apart the thermostat, among other things, when i was five my parents locked up alllllll the tools in the house.)
if I have never dealt with composites, but am willing to sand, and reglass it until it is what I want, what is the possibility that i can make a subwoofer box and have it look professional?
