    Ah, ha! I see an easier route to installing an IBS than I took.

    The acoustic properties of KingStarboard would be of little concern next to the fact that KingStarboard is next to impossible to get a glued and sealed seam.

    Maybe thats what I was thinking of, lol. I just know when I asked on here the answer was a resounding 'Don't use it for boxes!'

    I'm fine with the coated birch. In my Outback, where the enclosure sits on top of carpet it has been fine for the last 2 seasons, although I have a ton of fiberglass resin and truck bed liner inside and out.

    Small calculation error; the box will be elevated ~5" above the floor, and progressing above the hump. The right side of the box will (be cut to) sit flush with that factory brace thing. Went to test fit this afternoon and can't get the box into position; trying to fit a square peg in a trapezoid hole, lol. Luckily as it stands the box is 2.5 cubic feet, where 2.2 is what is called for. Cutting the corner off should put me right where I want to be

    Good Job Ian - this should put you right on the sweet spot. Remember on initial setup to turn off bass boost, and pay attention to the subsonic filtering on the Xi1500.1. You'll want to reconfirm those details when install. whats the vent length in this box?

    There is no vent yet, but it will be 3.125 x 4 x 14

    I made some more progress on the sub enclosure yesterday.

    I chopped the side of the box off and gave it a test fit before sealing it up. I will have to re-route the factory wiring harness up the side (a simple zip-tie job) but all in all its an easy fit.



    Back in the garage, I sealed up the side, cut and installed the port, and put another several coats of truck bed liner;

    Ian,
    Did you lengthen the port accordingly after modifying the enclosure?
