    I have had some left over dynamat in my garage from another project and decided to wrap the stock enclosure. Wow what a difference, this is not earth shattering but you can tell a 35% increase in bass out put from stock.

    Yes I know bass is misspelled in the title I can’t fix it

    Get Some, nice work and this is the sub for the B&O (2018) system? I replaced the sub in my 2016 KR with the VSS Kicker sub/amp and nice difference, never thought to wrap the enclosure though...

    wrapping the enclosure not only gives you more bass, it’s a tighter, cleaner sound. well worth it whether you add an amp or not.

    I just did this mod with blsck sound dynamat. I would agree there is a significant increase in bass output and clarity. Sub comes out with 3 13mm nuts. Well worth the time

    Addendum - now after a weekend of usage, I have decided to not upgrade the sub in any way bc the increase in output and clarity is enough for me after this mod.

    I haven’t heard the stock sub + enclosure wrapped, but I know with the kicker 8” and 300w amp, it sounds respectable.

    Awesome work! Very interested in doing this mod. Is there a way to fold down the upper 60% portion of the seat to gain access? I can only get the 40% jack-side to fold down.

    ^^^^found it....

    Also, what was the thickness of the material?

    Thanks!

    My 2018 SCAB had a factory pull release, but I'm not sure if the SCREW has the same release though.

    Thanks!

    But no pull release strap on my ‘18 SCREW.
    It is identical to the posted video. Worked like a charm though.

    Estimates

    Roughly how much dynamat is needed and how long did this take?
