I'm interested in what sub you used for your enclosure and if you have any recommendations for me. I'll post the links to my items but do not know how to hotlink them. The box is 0.80 cubic feet with a mounting depth of 6.25 inches. I'd really like to avoid a real shallow mount woofer.

Your box looks badass! I see you went with a shallow mount sub. I found that the Alpine SWS 12D4 should fit in my enclose and the minimal airspace is perfect. Alpine says .75-1.0 for this sub. My box is .88 with a mounting depth of 6.25. The Alpine needs 5 13/16 so I guess it will work. I'm sure your box is waaay better but I will seal my with silicone and maybe run some more scews in it. I also ordered a 2 farad cap with the amp and door speakers. It should all be here next week and I'll try to post some pics. Everything was free shipping and out the door price was $436.00. I would think more people would be interested in how to build a pretty nice budget system with easy installation and pretty much no fabrication.
