The orignal thread got archived I have been busy doing a bunch of projects it seems as if you are not doing 20 things at once your not getting anything done LOL. Ill post the installed picks this weekend
Thanks for the complements Chris:I used to have a web sight with pictures of all the projects I started on the boat. When it crashed and I lost all my pictures I sorta stopped keeping pictures of projects and just post them up here. I need to go back and take a bunch of picture of all the stuff I have done over the years like a photo album. Sam: Its Aluminum. Its anodized. I bought it from a company on line in LA and had it shipped up here to SF. It came in a 4 X 8 sheet. Check with a local metal shop they sometimes have this material. I have found that cloth works ok with sub's but if you use cloth on the mids and highs you notice a diff in volume.
its hard to say. I vented the bottom of the passenger seat a few years ago. I can tell you that there was a big differance. With this project there was a month or so between the last time I played the stereo and the time I did this vent. It was hard to tell if the bass was louder because it had been so long from the time I had last heard the system. The Grill on the drivers side is fake. There is no vent there. Its just a grill to match the passenger side.
Adam: The answer to your question is in the 10th picture in this thread. If you don't have one and your NOT a Caveman a sawzall will work fine. You can use it to cut the straight sections and then use a dremmel to round the corners. You don't have to make a perfect cut out. The grill will cover your cut section. If you can't cut a semi straight line then you shouldn't be using cutting tools on your nice boat. Find a friend that can cut straight and have him help you. The blue tape with a nice line marking your cutting aera makes a good guide.
"A g money tip" A friend holding a shop vac pointed at your cutting tool removing fiberglass dust as you cut or sand will keep your boat clean as you work and you itch free.
