Project Bass (updated)

Ok, it's another project. The Lotus Elise has a great exhaust note with the Stage II exhaust, but it is totally lacking in the car stereo department. So a little searching on craigslist and we have a 10" Alpine Type R Sub-woofer in a box that is way too big.

So it's time to get out the saw and cut it down.  Now that is a speaker box on a diet.

My son Graham gets in on the speaker building project.

He learns from the master

Now time to fit the huge speaker in the tiny box

It fits!

And it fits perfectly in the footwell on the Lotus Elise.
Now we need to wire up the Alpine Amp that came with it and find a way to mount it in the trunk.

The Amp is In! And it sounds great!!! Lots of bass. You can really feel it. Totally changes the sound of the whole system. Now I just need to upgrade the front speakers to some 5.25" JL Audio speakers to cover the mid bass and it should be about right.
