My little sub enclosure
With the help of some of the folks on this forum, I have started the redo of our '02 LSV and am now going through the stereo.
I have ordered my amps, 12'-W6, Kenwood HU and spent a few hours this last weekend starting on the sub enclosure which is replacing an old chinese made enclosure with an Alpine R12 shoved under the driver's area.
Final checking on the boat:
I was going to do a high fill, polish and fill again gloss finish, but for now I have ordered some Moomba yellow and Moomba grey vinyl and will decide which one I will cover it with. This is so I can speed up finishing the stereo install as I want to finish the stereo install then have the interior redone down in Fresno CA.
So for now I think I will spray the plywood with either a laquer or a roll a two-part epoxy such as the West System 105/206 products. I can always build another enclosure later if I feel like it as I will be putting together my little home cabinet shop this winter.
I still need to clean up the glue, mount the front (which is just tacked for now) and side panel, router/ease the outside corners and add the speaker wire terminal cup.

Sorry for the poor photo quality, they were mostly taken inside under goofy lights.

Be sure to elevate the enclosure off the sole by a minimum of 1/2" with polymer pads/risers of some type, such as PVC, HDPE, KingStarboard, ABS, etc. Regardless of what and how you coat/seal the enclsosure, you must provide for drainage and evaporation, especially with that much footprint against carpet. In avoiding a mold and mildew trap, it's also a good idea to space the enclosure off the hump by a small margin.
