Mounting the MDF Ring

After the mold has been made you need to decide how you want your subs to face.

1. I cut a circle out of MDF board that would match the inner diameter of my subwoofer. The ring's thickness also matched the outside diameter of the sub so it would flow smoothly.

I cut the ring with a jigsaw. To cut out the middle drill a hole big enough to fit the saw blade in.

2. Use wooden dowles and scrap pieces of wood as the mounts.

I used a hot glue gun to hold the dowels in place.

Make sure the ring is sturdy and will not flex when you strech the fleece over it.

This is how it looks mounted in the trunk with the ring mounted.

This is also a good time to put the subwooder in it to check for clearence

Once the ring is mounted and stable then you need to strech some fabric over it.
