Cant see any subwoofer enclosure. Looks like you uploaded the wrong picture.

Tha is an MTX road thinder 4" coaxial on the dash with cloth covered MDF pannels. Just sounds and looks better!

The pic is actually some custom pillar pods (as you can see!) for my 52mm gauges. More organic looking than the plastic pods.

Are these DIYs or a pro job? What is the finish on the subwoofer enclosure?

And I'm really sorry, but the pillar pods look way too organic. You should consider sanding them and probably painting them or something.

Hope you take any criticism constructively. If you are a professional, it'll only just help you.

The sub enclosure is in need of more attention, some of the glue hasn't taken propperly to the carpet (off-white sub box carpet) it needs a bit of fiddling an it'll be spot on. More sound deadening and screwing down required too, as the pannel above has begun rattling like mad!

DIY's while i had some time out from running CustomIce and another business! Although i know what you mean with the pilar pods, there is more work to be done on them, more filler and more sanding, then re-primer. Needed to have the car back on the road without gauges hanging all over the place! Not finished but it will be a pro job by the time i'm done.

All criticism when written in a constructive maner is appreciated

A good DIY effort ;but as B&T put it,the finish is missing

Are the dash speakers 4"?Look like 6*9s
