    at the last one (sorry for the bad quality ) there are blue led lights that glow from the ports

      Those look great. You don't see a whole lot of fiberglass around here.

          Nice work, great result. It would be useful to some of us if you could take the time to describe the process you used and what you learned. The versatility of fiberglass offers almost endless new possibilities for enclosure shapes. From the photos, I gather you used some type of shrink wrap to create the compound curves in the mold? I'm assuming you did a layup over the shrink wrap...

          Anyway, I'd be curious to see a few more details, and photos of the process if you have them. Any links you can provide describing the process would also be appreciated.

            The placement of the speaker, ports and sides form the shape. Once all is in place, fabric is stretched over everything and is either glued or stapled around the edges of the sides, and rings. The stretching of the fabric over the rings give you the shape. Then resin is applied followed by layers and layers of chop mat for strength.

              Very nice work indeed. Fiberglass has always been a bit mysterious to me, never worked with it, but looks like it could open up a whole new world.
