    have you worked with fg before? that would be the best way. and if you haven't, learn how to work with that first.

    ^^werd. When I made my sub box I rushed it and cut some corners and it shows, lol. Take your time and do a good job and it will pay off. Here is a very helpful site I found on cc a while ago, it helped me a lot. http://web.njit.edu/~cas1383/proj/main/

    My 91 crx has something similar in it. Never had a problem with it until I got rear ended and had to take off my rear bumper/kit.
    Make sure to leave enough room to get a socket or wrench on your bumper bolts!
    Removing the sub box made it a real beehotch!

    ^^ isn't that the kinda sub you can find on ebay for fairly cheap? or is that some super high end brand that i cant afford? are they clean bass? or just really loud? and a very nice/clean enclosure there!!

    yes in fact u can buy them on ebay for a realitively cheap price, usually they have deals with selling them in pairs. its fairly clean bass, but since i got the 15" woofers they are somewhat loud also. definatly if u purchase these subs i would recommend sound proofing the trunk first. as for the enclosure it was custom built by myself and a friend, spent 2 days on it and it was fairly easy and inexpensive, cost about 50 total to build that.

    i would recommend these subs to anyone looking to get some high quality subs for a decent price, look at the stats on these subs if u are interested they are fairly heavy however. but i know of at least one ofther person on clubcivic that has these subs also.

    that woofer sounds like a good one to choose also,

    for my box i didnt use any fiberglass, i used 3/4 inch wood, basically built it the same way u would a normal box, then for the fake floor i just cut a measured and then put some legs on it to make it stand, my amp and all the wiring are underneath the floor, the floor pieces actually can come out if i need to access the amp or wiring for any reason. then i just carpeted the whole works, and then felt for the sub cutouts and cut and folded that and then dropped the subs in.
