How much should that box cost...no more than 60 bucks...thats screws, Liquid nails, caulking and MDF.

:fyi: Building your own box will save you close to 400 bucks. Wouldnt you like tosave money?

is the box ported? if so 400-450 is about right....its a freaking waste of money though....if your nto comfortable with making your own, haggle him down to 300 or so....just so you know, im not a pro that would cost me 20 bucks and take about 1hour, plus a half hour to carpet it....and i garontee they can do that s h i t faster than me.

its a Sealed box, and that also include all wires (4gage) and all. But i want to know im not getting ripped for this box. its soo simple.. but i dont feel comfortable making it.
So i was just making sure the box is worth less than 200. ok later

Materials for that box are less than 50 bucks. A sealed box? And the guy is charging you that much? Either find someone else who's a LOT cheaper or build it yourself because that sealed box isnt worth anything over 50 bucks for materials and he should only be charging you about 100 bucks for labour, or less.

If I were you, Id build it yourself. Invite a couple friends over one day and they will help you build it, Im sure. You'll gain the confidence needed to build your own boxes after you realize how simple it really is...you will never gain confidence getting someone else to build it for you...and you will end up throwing $$$ down the drain for the rest of your life.

are they running all the wiring for the subs(rca's and turn on) and power? sounds like they are asking 450 for a sealed box installed, am i right? if thats the case the price is about par for a 'pro' installation, i would never pay that because i can do all for 50...but if your not comfortable doing it, that price installed is decent.
