    Well I spent this holiday week on this and this is what I have so far. I am waiting on some stereo parts, and it will be done soon. I will have pics for that too. Here they are:

    You might want to post up to the audio board... but I like it!

    Did you box in the speakers? That would prolly get you better sound...

    Any way you post measurements of the stock panels or the new ones. I know people have been looking for something to make new panels off of. I know I would be interested.

    Boxing them in, excellent idea but i dont know where to start to do that. I dont have much more wood available, only scraps, Ill see if I can do anything.

    Boxing them is would help heep a tight, crisp sound. You can find out from the MFG of your speakers how many cubic inches they recommend to provide for your model speaker. If you don't box them in, they will not sound as good as they could, and will likely sound kinda crappy when cranked up... [​IMG][​IMG]

    For those speakers, shouldn't take too much to box them in... might only need a box 6" square 4" deep...

    I did that too, with 5/8" particle board. Not boxed in, but they still hit pretty good (10" MTX Thunders) for my 40 year old ears............pics below on site Interior page.

    For the rest of you guys, just use the original thin panels for the template. Kinda hard to redo this unless we have someone willing to do an AutoCAD setup into MS Paint.

    These aren't subs, they are 6.5" midrange. Granted yes they will sound better boxed but it shouldnt effect them to much. My bass will be coming from 2 12" audiobahn aw1200x's and a Kenwood 600w amp.

    Thanks for the ideas though.

    What if the Blazer you have didn't have the original panels. I plan on doing an ACAD sketch once I have mine finalized, but I was looking for measurements for a starting point. Once I put it on ACAD I can put it into a pdf. format.

    Good point, one which I meant to mention in my response............I guess the answer is you find someone else that has the measurements or get a sheet of paper/cardboard/chipboard and start making one. Dang, wish I had saved my panels and made a paper template, you are about the 20th person to ask about this in the past couple of years.
