Default Custom Center Console Subwoofer Build

I wish I would had taken pictures from the start of this but of course a few days in I decided to grab a camera anyways.. This is installing a 12" Orion HCCA in my center console of my 2006 Dodge Ram Quad Cab. Here are some photos maybe I took them early enough for everything to see where im going with this project.

The build looks good, keep the updates coming.

When those speakers first came out, Orion recommended that the mounting baffle be 1.5" think just to support the weight.

Has this changed since then?

It changed to 1" and I had 2 of these subs mounted in a box already made out of 1" for about a year and it did fine. I'll admit I had this sheet of 3/4 laying around and used it, I'm hoping it doesn't burn me in the end but we will see. I had the speaker sitting in the box for a few days letting the mounting plates dry on the inside and it was fine. but of course there was no sound pressure on the other side.

Anyways here are a few more pictures of the smoothing out the top getting ready for vinyl

I am kind of kicking myself about not doubling up the front baffle on this I'm wondering if I add a brace inside for the magnet if it will take stress off the front and make the 3/4 front suffice...any ideas?

My thought to fix this and i think it will work is im going to buy some thicker dowels from lowes this after noon and do some internal bracing from the front baffle to the back and the top to bottom. should fix the boo-boo I made, I think...

The X-Bracing you are contemplating should do the trick. I did notice the box and set interface seems extremely tight. Set material sems to bulge and wrinkle on both sides of the box. Is that what you had planned? Will the seats rub on the box? It masy ed up wearing through at those points. Just curious.

I will get the dowel and do the bracing tonight and will take pictures and post them up. It is tight and wasn't exactly supposed to be that way, they do rub a little on each side. I'm hoping the vinyl on vinyl will help with the wear on my seats but no it wasn't intended to be that tight . I measured the space at the bottom and didn't factor in that the side of the seats sit in more the bottom area of the seat.

Edit** Also to fix another boo-boo I made, I ran the cupholder part through the dishwasher thinking it would get all the stickyness out of it so it was nice and pretty when I put it back together..however I guess there was still some soap in the dishwasher when I ran it and it stained the plastic part, so my thought was to just paint it gray then clear coat it..any special way to sand/paint it to make it come out nice and look shiny and glossy? any special paint to get? Or possibly just painting it black this way it doesn't look weird if the gray I paint it doesn't match the vinyl. I'm leaning towards black since in my head at least it will look better

The best way ive found to paint plastic is to clean it really good, and then use adhesion promoter, then paint a couple coats of your color, then a couple coats of clear
