I called up the two closest Car Audio shops in my area (Car Tunes & 727 Customs)

and asked for a quote on a custom ported 4 cubic foot box tuned to 35Hz first shop said $180 and the second said about $150.

I would like to get a good custom 4 cube 35Hz ported box for the two 12" 2006 Alpine SWR-1242D's which when I get the money for the amp will be powered by a single Lanzar OPTI2000D wired to 1 ohm for 1692w RMS (850w per Type R).

Only big problem here is that I would like to pay less for the box so I can better afford the Lanzar OPTI2000D and not be broke the rest of June.

Anyone in the South Eastern United States building some quality boxes on the cheap?

shipping is going to be a pain in tha a** for any one... so your best bet would be some one local in your area...

150 is a good price i think for a box. high end shops around here go for 250-300 for really custom boxes, not the run of the mill boxes.

heh,There is a guy on a local surfing message board I belong too,real nice guy.

Anyway he owns his on cabinet buisness and is in to mini trucks and audio.

He said he can either help me with the tools or whatever,just give him the plans.

Anywho I was looking at Moe lester's box plans sticky and cant decide.

The subs are two Alpine SWR-1242D's wired to 2 ohms each and wired to a Lanzar OPTI2000D for a final imedance of 1 ohm and 1692w RMS x 1 channel (850 per sub)

I can't decide if I should go with the 5 cubes Ported and tuned to 34Hz or 4 cubes at 35Hz.

You can probably get the tools and materials needed for less than $150.

Also make sure they are talking about a FINISHED box, and not just a plain MDF enclosure.

That would be a VERY good price for a CUSTOM built box thats from a shop. Most shops around me want at least $300+ for a ported box.
