need Khaki carpeting for Sub enclosure

I'm going to be building a Sub enclosure soon and I want to wrap it with Carpeting that will match the one on the back of the rear seats of my `07 Grand Cherokee Khaki interior.

Anyone know a place online that I can find a good match? In the meantime I'll be searching Locally.

Thanks in advance,

Re: need Khaki carpeting for Sub enclosure

Andy, have you tried searching/posting over on DIYMA... I'm sure plenty of guys know of good resources to get carpet. It will probably be an online store though which makes it tough to compare. Khaki seems like it would be a pretty forgiving color though, so.

Re: need Khaki carpeting for Sub enclosure

Not yet, just trying all my sources.

Hey what is the volume of your box? I need 1ft^3 but my plan is to make it similar to the look of yours but half of the "box" will be hiding my amps.

I've been taking a lot of beach trips lately and water and sand are getting down in the cargo area, so I had to ditch the false floor plan

Gotcha.

Volume of my enclosure is 1.25 cu ft. gross (before sub displacement). I pretty much used all the available space from the back of the seat forward to the removable floor cover and keeping the use of the cargo pull cover thingy. It may be hard to squeeze a pair of amps and a 1 cube enclosure in that space.

Re: need Khaki carpeting for Sub enclosure

I'll start a Build Log soon. I've gotta get some measurements of the interior to Don. I'm going with his products instead of the traditional layers of dampening.

Can I link to other forums here? I've got a thread going on DIYMA for people helping me find midbass and tweets that seems to be looking like I may go with dedicated Midbass and fullrange speakers in the dash. Where have I see that before?

Yeah, you can link to other forums... probably not a rival forum, but DIYMA is cool. Man, I havn't been on DIYMA in forever... probably haven't posted since February.

Honestly, I didn't miss a thing on the top end by using a full range driver in place of a traditional tweeter. Anything over 12khz is really not worth worrying about (unless your competing of course) IMO - a moving vehicle and other factors pretty much drown out anything over 12khz.

Look into the Dayton RS100, Vifa TG9, CSS FR125SR, CSS WR125ST... those were some of the full ranges I was looking into at the time. Went with the RS100's... I loved them! Very good budget driver.

Why, you can spray the mdf with a waterproofing that will repel water. Or adhere a poly plastic over the mdf then carpet it. I got my carpet from walmart, I remember seeing light grey and black, was 9 bucks a roll of 36"x72". One of the best mods I did was making this false floor, looks completely stock and no one can see where I have my amps. Out of site = more cargo room and wont get stolen easily. All I have to worry about is flipping down the rear seats and moving my small sub enclosure out of the way. Plus with this false floor I have so much stuff stored below it, lots of tools, jumper cables, extra fuses, bulbs, jack, tire wrench, etc...

At home depot they sell a wood sealer that would work good for what you want. When I made a wooden swing for outside I bought a wood deck stain/sealer, and the swing has been up for about 4 years now with zero rot and i used mostly 1x pine boards. The mdf would soak that up and be completely water tight. Just an idea.
