Compliments of Hurst Pak #1 @ challengertalk.com
I have been working on the system in my 2010 Challenger and thought I'd start a build thread.
I'll start with an equipment list and go from there.

Mid-Bass Amplifier: Tru Technology B2110
Sub Amplifier: Tru Technology B2200
Line Driver: Tru Technology L8-ix-R

Looking forward to everyone's feedback. Thanks!
Tuning with the OEM unit didn't work too well...
On to the Mac:
Custom Mount CAD Drawings:
The mid-bass drivers I'm installing in my doors have a phase plug in place of a traditional dustcap:
Because of this I wanted to have quick access to them so I could clean the gaps.
Once I had the factory grill trimmed out I started making what would eventually be the new grill:
Once I had the pattern designed I masked off both door panels in preparation for the fiberglass:
Next I trimmed the matting to the rough shape and glued it in place:
Fun with Fiberglass:
Once the resin dried overnight I peeled the mold apart:
Next I trimmed the edges and smoothed everything out based on my original template:
I changed the shape up a bit and layed my original speaker grill on for reference:
Next I wrapped the door again in preparation for adding heavier mat to strenghtening the molds:
Once this was dried I pulled everything apart again and did my final trimming, etc. Now that the mold is nice and strong I can start to add my removable grill(s) and mold them in place:
Here's the final piece ready for vinyl:
