That looks like it's going to slam! Can't wait to see it done

No turning back now. First time ever doing this. To be honest about it I'm pretty nervous about how it'll turn out.  Got it all laid out for the first door. Everything has just enough room to mount  

I finally got to start on the enclosure.  8 sheets of 3/4" mdf.  The large panels were cut with skill saw and a guide.

Been trying to figure out where I wanted to put the 8's. Was gonna put them in the front of the console but didn't like the looks. So back to the doors. This is gonna have to be the location I have to do. It'll have to be out further than I wanted. Every spot I wanted and figured I could cut a little metal. Had window or door bracing in the spot. Never done this before so I really hope I pull it off decently. The wires will be removed and new ran. Was gonna leave the rca but have better ones now. Just have to pull the dash cap and front off. To remove the rcas and run the new ones.

I actually moved the speakers up another 1/4" and should work out much better.

First time making rings. The 8's will have two rings. These for a little countersunk look. The side view has the grill mount in it. So I actually did it right i think lol. Tweets are done. Just have to do the ones for the 6.5's. Then I will get to start mounting and cutting up the doors 😳

Wow with all that cone area should be pretty loud! Looks good so far!

Thank you. 

It would be nice. I will be happy if it plays well. I have my hopes but really don't know what to expect in reality. Never had anything like this or built anything like it before. 

I kinda hope to hit somewhere in the 150's. Maybe be able to dance a shirt or small hair trick.
