2 Layout your cuts:

Using a pencil, trace onto the location of the board where you want to place your subs.
5 - Make the final panel cuts on the table saw:
Using the table saw cut the holes for the subwoofers. Be careful when working with the table saw because it can be dangerous.
6 - Smooth the edges of the hole and the outer router srea using sandpaper.
7- Assemble the panels:
When assembling your panels, start by attaching the top and bottom to the sides of the box at the beginning. By doing so, you will be able to perfectly adjust the edges to match your enclosure. Use screws (or brad nailer) and glue to seal the box and prevent any air leakage.
8 - Carpet the Box:
Wrap the carpet tightly onto the enclosure.
9 - Wiring the box/enclosure:
Drill a hole for the speaker wires. Make sure that the hole is large enough for the wires and deal the hole using strip-calk.
10- Mount the subs:
Make sure that the subs are wired properly to match the impedance rating on your amplifier.
Your subwoofer box is now ready to be installed in to your vehicle.
