shop around and get best prices. for around where i live that is about normal price, unless of course you know the owner and can talk them down a bit. try building it yourself or have someone you know build you one.

what subs are included?

the box itself will probably cost less than 70 in materials

build your own box man, everyone on here will help you, sum of us are pro's sum rookies but you'd save alot of money doing it yourself

i built my own box just last week, came out great, pounds like crazy, i coulda bought one for $60 but i spent $25 on supplies instead and built it myself, the woods cheap i just needed glue and a few screws

Yeah dude...good luck. I **** at woodwork, and about 2 months ago, I built my first box. I used the boxbuilder program on reaudio.com, and it gives you the cut sheet and everything. Well, anyway...it came out GREAT! It pounds like a mofo! I spent $450 on my last box from a custom shop, and now I'm kicking myself for ever doubting my skills. Plus...the satisfaction of saying that I did my entire install INCLUDING the box is the best part. Take your time and you'll be glad that you did it. lol!, my $.02!

as long as its bigger than about 2 inches wide you shouldnt have the port noise problem.

a wwhhiillee ago when i built my first box, it came out pretty much a perfect trapezoid. many boxes ago..you learn as you do it.

its a blast also. grab a few beers and invite some friends over

im sorry but that statement will not hold true in every case.


You need to have the appropriate port area so you do not have port noise

not enough port area for the box creates whistling

you could have a 1 inch wide port that is 14 inches tall. in a 1 cube box. that is 14 sq. inches of port. you shouldnt get any noise :)
