This will be wrapped in carper and put inside the passenger 1/4 panel I will then make a panel to cover it out of 1/4" wood, round the edges, and wrap it in gray speaker grill cloth. Ill post more pictures along the way. If i get enough interest i may start building these boxes to sell. Id sell them with no subwoofer. I can cut a hole for an 8" 10" or 12" woofer. Buyer will have the option.
Interested!! Price?

I put hood vents like that on a Toyota p.u. I had. I had a Chevy 4.3 in it and the vents really helped to pull heat out of the engine compartment . I believe it helped the radiator by drawing air thru with vacuum. Need to do that to our Cherokee.
