    Here is my new prototype subwoofer enclosure build for my challenger. Previous I did a all in one solution, which used a built in amplifier. Due to availability and performance of the amp I decided to go in another direction. With this enclosure it will have a 1cu ft of air space to accommodate most 12" subwoofers. Mounting depth is around 7". The subwoofer I will be using in this build will be a Helix E12W 12" subwoofer. Its a sound quality sub that has a shallow mounting depth of only 3.5". Ive done these subs in other installs with the 8" and 10" with decent output. So the E12W should perform well. Also since its a slim sub I will save on weight.

    Very nice, and great choice of subwoofer as well! The Helix E12W is by far one of my favorite shallow subwoofers.

    Alright finally got the grill mesh in today, so I pressed a custom grill to fit the trim. I did another trim ring as well. I wrapped this one in suede instead of vinyl. This give the enclosure a very stealth look. No sub woofer showing, just a very clean oem look.
