I like that alot. My only problem with them is I think the speaker comes out too far. And I'm worried about the speaker getting kicked pretty hard.

Other than that.....BADDDDDDASSSSSSSSSSS

Look at it as a business opportunity.
So to make a roughed out, unfinished 2 or 3 holed custom pod, you might spend what....15 hours for the first one and if you make a couple at a time...maybe 10 hours each. So you pay yourself $20. an hour and charge them out at $200. each. Some may be willing to pay the price.
Worth considering.

the biggest hurdle with mass producing fiberglass products out of your garage (or shed if you live in a trailer park) is the drying time. It doesnt take but maybe 5 hours at the most of labor to get em done if ur good at em but if you mix it right, the fiberglass should take about 24 hours to fully cure.
