Plastic is another issue well that and being thin too.
The PVC is pretty solid for what it is. Yeh that first speaker was just something I had laying around. It's built better then the Altec Lansing, that disintegrated, but didn't perform as loud as the Altec. Mostly in part to the Altec being 4ohm and the 'generic' being 8. The amp is under a plastic cover in the truck and I couldn't adjust the gain easily. A longer throw woofer is on the way. Rated 150w RMS -if- I can keep the excursion to a minimum.

But like I said, if the tuned tube box is your sound, this is a great idea.
I have 2 Cadence 10s in an acoustic suspension enclosure in my SVX. They sound much better I agree. The truck in the vids isn't even mine. It's my friend who runs a dog adoption agency and taking her 12" sub in and out, to put in dog transport cages, was too much work for her. I was aiming for fast, simple design, high output, while maintaining a good sound quality. It's hard to fill an SUV with sound from a single 6" sub that would fit where it does. Have you ever heard a decent set of 6x9s (that's a oxy) in a Caprice trunk deck that almost trick you into thinking there's a sub in the trunk? This single 6" has roughly that output.
Oh and Wile, You know damn well there's no such thing as flat response in a vehicle. lol
