3rd time is a charm. And a new custom sub enclosure

Hey guys, here is the story of my audio setup...
So early January I bought a JL audio a1400 amp and a 12W1 to go with it. I absolutely LOVED the sound that I was getting from this set up alongside the factory hifi system (no logic 7). Then in February I visited my parents in Brownsville. When I was packing my dad decided to put my dumbbell in my trunk. I didn't think anything of it but when I got back to Austin and finally did a hard brake, I heard a pop from my speakers. I thought it was just me unplugging my iphone but when I got to the trunk to unload, this is what I saw...

I FREEEEAKKKEDDD OUTTT. I then called up a local place that sells JL audio and asked if they had a cheap JL sub laying around. They said they had some of the older V3's in 10". I didn't want to drop top dollar on a newer sub after this so I decided to pick this one up. So I went from a 12" W1 to a 10" W3v2. Before I mounted this sub, I turned my amp all the way down so I could tune it well after... or so I thought....

TURNS OUT THAT I DIDN'T turn it all the way down... instead I turned it ALL THE WAY UP! So when I played my "bass song" (Swag Surfing- Lil Wayne), I heard a POP when the bass intro kicked in... At this point I just wanted to quit. I was thinking "forget all this sh*t". BUT I love my bass too much to just give up. 3 days later, and a couple hundred bucks more... I picked this up...

And I didn't stop there. I wanted it look good and be protected. So I got this done today...

I'm pretty happy about it. I LOVE how it looks. I was going to get the universal carpet, but it still had a weird contrast compared to the lining in the trunk so I decided to just do a full black carpet contrast. I hope you guys like it!

Thanks guys, the amp is mounted behind the rear seat. That's the downside. I'm still debating whether or not to put the amp in the storage space with a plexiglass over it... What do you guys think?

I actually got this done at a shop, I didn't make it myself so I wouldn't have the actual design specs.

I never got to actually hear the 10w3, but the 12w3v3 I have now sounds really good.
