|To those of you who I see with incredible fiberglass tower speaker pods and sub enlosures - How did you learn to do all that? Was it just trial and error? Have any of you used instructional videos such as the one I list bellow? For my truck I'm building a sub enclosure but I'm struggling on a few things and am wondering if these more visual approaches might help. Thanks for your help and I've got to say I have a new found respect for those of you with skills in glassing. |
|I'm all self taught. Glass is easy stuff to work with, messy but easy. |
Just give it a try as its cheap enough to experiment with. There are loads of guides on the net so have a look around.
Video will help but not needed really as nothing beats the learning curve of a ahnds on approach.
|Good Point! Thanks Jay!|
|I've never made a speaker box, but I've fiberglassed kayaks before, and I have to agree with Jay. I had no previous experience, but it is really easy to work with. |
Check out www.alpine-usa.com and look under the support menu at the demo car instalation pictures. That might give you an idea as to how some of it is done.
Lots of guys on here have lots of experience working with glass too, if you have any questions, just ask!
|Go to JLaudio's web page they have a pretty good instruction on making a mold for making a speaker box. |
It the same principles apply to what you want to do.
Get the Grip You Deserve
|Check out http://www.wetboxtowers.com/speaker.html and watch eBay as there are people that make the boxes if your ever looking for a tower speaker box. Maybe they'll give you some pointers? Another one is http://www.fiberglassfixation.com/box.html |
I worked with glass a good bit in my younger years and it takes a while to get good. The people doing the molds and projects out of glass that look so insane are truly artists!
|Thanks, these are some really good links!!! The JL site has some really good info and the other links are giving me a lot of new ideas. I better keep myself in check on this one. Anyways, thanks for the help guys, I appriciate it.|
