I need to start budgeting out the new system. Did a search but didnt really find anything that really helped me. Whats a rough ballpark that it would cost me to build a pretty decent sized box? my design idea is two separate ported enclosures about 3-3.5 cu ft put into one large enclosure, around 45x17x18-ish, made for two 15" subs.

EDIT: a decent box, carpeted and whatnot.

i would say cost in materials just to build it depending on where u would live would be around 75-100 dollars. thats not including carpet or w/e to finish the box. just the mdf, screws, liquid nails or w/e u use

so 100 bucks would be a decent ballpark? $120-ish with carpet? trying to write up a price list here for my system so i can budget my crap out, gonna sell my ATV here in the next few weeks hopefully and i dont really wanna tap into that money if i dont have to hehe.

yes 100-120 to finish the box. spray glue isnt cheap and depending on what carpet or cloth u use on the box will change the price also.
