Here is my latest project build!

Starting with the finished look:

For this box build I'll be using two Focal P25FS Shallow Mount Subwoofers. These have the Flax Cone.

I'll be using the new Mobile Solutions Carbon Template

Started with cutting all my wood, and making the speaker hole cutouts

Added threaded fasteners, these will secure the subwoofers in place

Box assembled, and looking good, the front face is sunk down in so I can add the beauty panel

I laid out my plan for the design on this outer board

Here I am making the main insert piece. I stick the templates to the board and will flush trim them on the router, see the video for more details.

Now that this piece is flush trimmed I add the chamfer on the inside.

I also cut a piece of PVC material to give a nice accent to the insert piece. The outer insert was also fabbed up to flush the center insert into place.

I then cut out the center hole and the board thus allowing the subwoofers to play through it.

I wrapped the insert piece with grey vinyl. Really happy with this wrap job as it turned out perfect.

For all the steps in this project I used the new Mobile Solutions ECO Tray that I helped them design. :)

The ECO tray is a great set of router bits for those just getting started. It worked awesome to do everything for this build along with the new Carbon template shape.
