S213 subwoofer enclosure build

So I tried a traditional MDF-enclosure under the storage compartment floor but that didnt work out very well, the lid rattled and dampened the sound.
I sold that enclosure and will instead try to make a sealed fibreglass enclosure.

The plan is a 8, 10" or maybe a 12" woofer, stealthy installed integrated in the small space to the left in the trunk space.
Hopefully I will find a mat similar to the OE one.

Panel removed



Taping the panel to be able to apply the resin and fibreglass, the box will sit flush with the rear edge I will then place the speaker ring making it protrude about two inches.

Five layers of fibreglass and resin, cleaned it up and made a rough cut.
Now to fit the MDF-ring and start molding the front
