New to Cobalts not stereos. I cut custom MDF speaker rings for fiberglass boxes. These can also be used as spacers or to size down a speaker. I also build custom boxes. This is not a business by any means just something I enjoy in my little spare time. Let me know what you think.













Hard to tell from the last pic but the subs are flushed.

damn ya man solid work, looks like you really took your time on this! really sick and looks proffessionally done! so do you do many of these or just for yourself? I used to work a bit with MDF but i never got to building my own box. Also I could never find the right carpet covering where I live to match my car. post your system when it<s installed in your ride!!!!

Home Depot sells it. I built an 8 foot long woodworking bench out of it with drawers and shelves.

Thanks and no need to apologize. MDF is medium density fiberboard. Around here you can find it at lowes or home depot. If all else fails ask a local stereo shop where they get theirs. It's reall easy to work with, just alot of dust.

MDF stands for Medium Density Fibreboard and is a heavy wood-fiber board used for many things, one of which is sub boxes. It can be purchased at any home renovations store like home depot, home hardware sometimes, and whatever other stores like that you guyz have over there in the states.

you should have tons of truink space, especially in the cobalt. My setup will be custom, 2 12" subs in a vented box, a huge amp and a capacitor with room to spare. I plan on putting some illuminated plexiglass in there too to make it all sexxy lloll
