Also interested, assuming you're not making them anymore? Haven't seen any responses and your PM box is still full. Maybe I'll check out the enclosures from LMC. My component sets are very heavy and need TONS of support in order to install correctly and sound good. Focal 165-K2P and Focal 165-KBE sets are both going in my 67' C10. I'll need some heavy duty enclosures and lots of sound deadening.

If anyone has info on any other options I have besides doing it custom please let me know, thanks!

If you could make them hold a 6.5 and 1" tweeter I'd be interested.

I installed the ones from LMC and to little modification, and the sound is not bad.

What are the ones from LMC made out of? They appear to be made out of plastic but if they are fairly rigid and are of similar strength as something made out of fiberglass I'd be tempted to get these and install my own speakers.

I also figured that I would dampen them a bit with some dynamat or something similar.

Are you still making enclosures tried to msg you but wouldn't let me. Said msg bin full. Sounds like you might be swamped. I'd like a set in smooth also. Was also curious about mounting depth of the 6 1/2. Needing at least a top mount depth or 2 7/8. If that isn't possible cause it'd stick out to far might have to rethink choice of speakers I'm looking at.

I made my own and this is what i did; tractor supply had small metal buckets that have the bottom just a little bigger than the speaker hole needed. Cut the bottom out leaving say a 1/2" remaining to screw the speaker flange to. Now figure out the depth and angle you need, cut slits in the sides of the bucket up to the point of bending them out flat to be screwed to an mdf board that will be the final outer size. Then go to the auto parts store and get a gallon of body filler, evercoat has had a special for years @ $20.00 for a gallon. Now spread the filler around the sides as you build it up and mine were somewhat teardrop styled when done. Paint or cover as you wish!! Use screws to mount it to the side panel working through the speaker hole before you mount the speaker=screws hidden.

My reasoning for doing it this way was to get a deeper base response because the enclosure has some heft to it and i put a little fiberfill in the hole before i installed the speaker. 2 buckets, a gallon of filler and a can of paint, probably 40-50 bucks but looks and works good for my polk audio 6 1/2" speakers.

I made my own also. Actually not to bad with resin, wood frame and filler to smooth it out.
