    What did you put down in the spare tire rim when you laid the fiber to prevent the resin from sticking to the rim?

    I have the mold complete, just looking to put the top on it. Based on the first pic it looks like the top plate of the enclosure is at the same height as the support bar running through the factory cover. Do you have any problems with the woofer hitting the cover at high excursions?

    sweet!!!!

    i may try that in fiberglass, but i have a question. do you really need the molded encloser? couldn't you do the exact same thing without the fiberglass/cf, just use the spare tire "tub" as the encloser? has anyone tried that? it would be a larger "encloser" and an easier project. i guess there may be problems sealing it properly.

    I can't use the link to the iclub since they changed their address. Does anyone else have directions on how to do make one of those enclosures? I'd really appreciate it.

    Welcome dude. This thread gets a bump because it's a really nice idea. I have it bookmarked so in like 4 eons when I get a WRX I can make one.

    You sure thats a W6? If it is, it cant be the V2's. They are a blank dust protector now, no JL written on it. Sure its not a W3?

    The mold still looks great, cost for cost though fiberglass would be cheaper, but strength wise, CF is best. Working with CF sucks though Pretty much cant let it touch your skin.


    Edit: AH-HA! My mistake, the W6AE model does look like the older style W0's and W3's. Just took a look at my JL 2003 Book from work.
