Cardboard is your friend! Just go to the local shops or somewhere, and ask them whether you can grab some card board boxes or something, and go from there. Another good place to visit is places like ford and spray painters/repairers, as the boxes bumpers, glass, and things like bullbars come in are huge and will make it all in one piece. Then simply transfer to some mdf

I recently ran across the same dilema. Got a pair of cheap 10" Xplods and needed to make an appropriately sized box. Having a fairlane there's a s**t load of boot space and I rarely put anything up inbetween the shock towers so I decided to custom fit a box.
A piece of cardboard and tape measure were my two best friends on this mission, I think the hardest part was working out the correct volume that the box and ports needed to be. :roll:
It fits in nice and snugly yet remains removable or repositionable if I need to use the split-fold seat option. :D
