These are a few pictures of my work in progress.

Test fit to show sub enclosure clears the spare tire. This one was taken prior to stapling the material to the top and bottom that forms the curved sides.



Test fit pre-fiberglass and resin.



This is the underside of the box. The stair steps allow the eclosure to clear the spare tire. With the odd shape of the box, steps and bracing hopefully internal standing waves will be minimized.

Thanks guys!

Here it is! I couldn't give up all my storage. I used a long sharp knife to cut the storage tray saving only the last two bins.



I haven't cut the false floor panel or carpet mat. The bass seems to have no trouble penetrating either. My cargo net is a hold over from my previous vehicle.



Now I need to clean out those side bins.

Wow I like it I may do that down the road. Hows she sound?
It sounds pretty good! I have the sub level on the head unit set at -5 and blends really well with rest of the speakers.

The sub itself is of the blaupunkt shallow mount variety. After the break in period it plays pretty low frequencies. I bought it originally for its low price on Ebay and its shallow mount depth. This really was a proof of concept project. I wanted to make sure that the enclosure would fit below the false floor, and that it would have enough internal volume for a 10" sub. A Rockford sub is in route. I'm now working on a repeatable process to share
here and maybe build a box or two to sell on ebay.
