WK 10" Enclosure Dimensions
 
1 Attachment(s)
Here is an example enclosure that fits into the WK cargo area flush with the angled floor as well as the angled rear seats.

  • This enclosure is meant to house woofers up to 10 inches. The design can be modified to house a 12 inch woofer
  • The total (gross) volume of this particular enclosure is 1.145 ft^3
  • This design uses 3/4 inch stock
  • Note the mounting depth when shopping for woofers: I wouldn't go any bigger than 5.5 inches with this design
  • When selecting a woofer(s) remember to account for displacement
  • Keep in mind, any bracing will reduce the volume of the enclosure
  • This design allows the owner to retain the ability to use the factory cargo tray
  • This design allows the owner to retain the ability to use the cargo shade

Wing template PDF is attached at the bottom of this post.

haha, no apologies needed! That's why I posted it!! Let me know if you have any questions about it. I also plan to scan the "wing" templates and put them into a PDF.

I am not going to apologize; but thank you as I will too use these exact dimensions. How do you make the angle cuts? Do I have to have a table saw? All I have right now is a rechargeable skill saw...can it be done?

I wish I had a table saw, would have made it a lot easier with the angle cuts.

But no, I did it will a cheapy circular saw; There's an blade angle adjustment on it.

haha, on my way Scotty! :p

It'll be up for sale (or maybe I'd just do a give-a-way) if I decide to sell my rig and don't get an SRT8. That wouldn't be for a few months though :cool:

Yeah, it shouldn't be too hard. I measured while I was out there and you can still make it so you can fit a 12" driver and still retain the cargo shade.

Just make sure that you have enough airspace for whatever sub(s) you go with.

My subs have a 6 1/8" mounting depth. Mounting hole needs to be 11 11/16". Overall diameter + the mounting ring is 12 11/16".

I think I'd just add like 1 or 1.25" to the top (red) and bottom (blue) pieces, and make the whole thing about 1.5" taller.

Looking up what kind of volume my subs need now.

Found it - recommended volume for a sealed box is .85 ft^3. Does that double with two subs?

about freakin damn time! LOL kidding..

Thanks for the info's Matt, I too am going to copy it exactly. You used MDF 3/4'' correct? How much do you recall it cost at home depot/lowes?

Maybe you could add some more info for us that are going to be first time box builders in the near future! Like.. what material is used to seal the seams on the inside, and what I am really interested in is about the install of the speaker wire terminals and the install of those. Can those be had from say, radio shack?
