XJ Cubby Hole Sub Enclosure...*LOTS OF PICS*

Well I finally finished the sub enclosure in the cubby hole of my XJ. This was my first install that I did from start to finish without help...from cutting and building the box to installing the amp and running the wires. I'm kind of a stereo newbie...so I'm pretty proud. And it sounds pretty good! I think it could sound better with a better box that's sealed a bit tighter, but I did my best with silicone calk in the areas that weren't perfect.

Tell me what you think! I was going to mount the sub to the back of the front plate and carpet over it to make it more stealthy...but 6 hours of Jim Beam while working made me kinda forget to do that

Anyway, I have a JL Audio 250/1 Mono amp pushing a 10" Elemental Designs 4 ohm sub. This was my first experience with the company and for the price ($70 with free shipping) I thought I'd give them a shot. I'm pretty much as happy with this sub as I am with my JL in my TJ.

Give me your comments!

Subinstall came out great sam. I can't quite figure out what I'm looking at with the amp picture though. I'd like to have something like that for my JK.

Thanks!

Yeah, it is kind of hard to make out the amp picture. Basically, I mounted the amp under the rear seat...so that shot is when the rear bench seat is folded out...imagine what it looks like after you fold the seat out but before you lay that back part of the rear seat down in it's place.

Make sense?

Okay, I have a question for the audio experts...after listening to my stereo more in depth and louder yesterday I realized there's a rattle...and I realized that the rattle is coming from the fact that the box I built is sitting against the fender. Before the install (as you can see in the pics) I put a layer of dynomat...what else can I do to try and eliminate this rattle? Will it help if I put some expanding foam down, then reseat the box in place? Basically I'm trying to avoid cutting and rebuilding the box. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Sam

just wedge some polyfill or some kind of cushon between the box and fender. even carpeting the back of the box might help.
