I bought 2 yards of polyester fleece from Wal-Mart for like 4 dollars. Two yards was more than i really needed but it doesn't hurt to have extra incase you mess up.

1. Cut enough fleece so that it will compleatly cover the enclosure.

2. Start with a side that is going to be visible in the end so that you know you wont make creases in that area. Hot glue at the starting point and make you way around the enclosure. Test-strech to help predict if creases will form. Avoid creases at all cost. I pulled my fleeces back up on sme sides b/c it would have created creases.

3. Once you have the fleece streched over the enclosure how you want it w/o creases then you can put some resin on it. You can work in bigger batches (6oz.) since you done have to worry about getting the fiberglass uniform and air bubbles out and such.

This is how it will look after it has resin on it. I didn't resin the center of the ring becuase you will just cut that out.

Put you subwoofer in there and see how it looks, this it pretty much the same shape it will have when your done.
