    Yes there is, it is only a small program but costs about 100. It must be banging around on the net somewhere....

    hey slim, not for one second do i doubt your ability to build one after seeing your parcel shelf but imo i think youd be better just buying a sub box, i bought a sub and using the manufacturers guidelines and calculating dimensions so that i would have a ported enclosure that contained 47 litres exactly, i ended up with a bloody enormous box, and although it sounded the absolute bollocks, it was far to big and very un-practical (is that a word ) and it was a pain in the arse to trim, and afterwards it did not look very good, if i were you, i would go out and buy a car magazine (max power has loads of ads in the back for discount car audio warehouses) and buy a kit ready for building, take it as good advice mate, i for one am always up for a bit of diy and im never doing it again, just too much hassle, thats just me tho

    ps i used 18mm mdf for it, 15 quid for an 8' x 4' sheet and it was enough for the box, side pods and a false floor with hinged opening for access to spare wheel well

    Oh he of little faith

    im just thinking of things to do at the moment and keep changing my mind. Id like to do a nice built in install (i did one in my FRST) but then i think "hmm would be nice but all that extra weight"

    I got to get the engine in first anyway before i worry too much about the ice.

    thanks for the opinion though anyway
