No forward progress was made today. The install bay was busy until 8pm. By that time, it was time to sweep the floors, vacuum the benches and pile of swept up stuff, clean the floors, and take the trash out.

8PM?!? There is life after 8pm. You're not really trying till you're up till 4am working on things. You need to quit wasting your time. :P

Store closes at nine, and so does the bay. WIth me still being in college, homework is more important to me than doing installs.

I was 200 miles out of town for the weekend, but I did get some glasswork done on it Thursday night. I'm gonna stop in at work tomorrow to grab it to do some sanding to smooth it out, then it should be pretty much ready to carpet and put in.

Does it hurt the W6 with that small box at all? I mean sound quality is it affected? And does it hit pretty hard?

The box was about 1.2 ft^3, which is right about what JL recommended thankfully. I had polyfil in it as well, so i'm sure it helped a bit.

I could have actualy made it bigger, but when I did the mold, I was rushed (freezing my arse off outside!!).

I currently have a set of Massive 10'* in a plain jane, built to spec, MDF box right now, since I got rid of the W6. Kinda killing trunk space, so I plan on doing another fiberglass setup sometime in the near future. But first, I need to the the underseat single 10" setup for a Jeep Liberty. I'm only charging him materials since he is one of my better friends best friend.
