I had it ported...was alittle too loud and the box was too big...no trunk space. I cant seem to find a buyer so ill keep it and save money on a new setup.....

The site says they work equally well in both sealed and ported boxes btw......:crap:

this has been discussed at length...probably 2.5 years ago about how crappy they sounded sealed...oh well, you might like it and i've never personally heard one so...good luck

I just agreed to trade the DP for a 15" Diamond D9...I need a 2cf sealed box. $95 shipped. LMK

(Prefab) Carpet
2.0cf
rounded edges

15.5"H, 31"W, 11"D....
Mounting Diameter: 14.2"

BTW, there will only be about 2 1/2" clearance behind the sub, is that ok?

120 shipped for a simple 2cf sealed box for 1 sub...negative. I dont believe in paying retail. There are definitely more capable people who are just as talented that can do it for less.

lol thats what i said robin..... ur paying for somthing u cant do so why should u pay bottom dollar.. its not worth someones time to take 30mins + gas money to run to lowes or homedepot and get wood and materials then roughly 1-2hrs of the day to build it and carpet it take another 20-30mins out of the next day to pack it and take it to ups and spend 20-30bucks for shippin
so let run down

Trupan ultra lite = $48
Carpet = $12
shipping = $25
screws = $3
Glue= $3
total cost $91.00 if u use mdf = $70 so in my case i would profit 4dollars and someone else that would use MDF would profit roughly 25bucks... id rather sit on my *** then work 4hrs to make 25 dollars

So because I dont know how to build my own box I should pay top dollar? Not everyone tries to make a living off making boxes...some do it for a hobby and others just because they want to. There are plenty of PPL on this forum that can build a simple sealed box for less than u are charging, with a respected name. Why would I go to u? Please get off my tip for trying to get the best price for my money...btw, I found someone to waste their time and build me a box...:rolleyes:

You have to take a look on the other side of the fence as well.... you want to get the best product for your dollar. But on our side, we want it to be worth our time. Building a good enclosure takes a good amount of time. To build a good enclosure you must use quality materials. My prices may be on the higher end of the spectrum, but I dont use sub par materials to build either. Sure, I could go grab some particle board, shoot it together with brads, forget the glue, use a cheap carpet with a cheap adhesive.... but I dont want to put my name on something like that.

You get what you pay for..... ;)

my time is worth money. i spend my days working my *** off makinga decent living. i dont mind doing someone that i consider a friend, a favor. or even a teammate. but if i built you a box for 90 shipped, then i have all kinds of other people asking me why you get the hookup.

thats just how it is man, but im curious, who did you get to build it for you for 90 bucks?


btw, for a custom enclosure, 120 bucks (shipped) is definately not top dollar. you can go to any audio shop and they will start you out around 200 for dimensions that you give them, and about 150 for boxes that are already made.

ok...u get what u pay for. Thats off top. What is your point? Im not asking my neighbor to build me a box... I had a ported box built by jmanpc a while back for alot cheaper than what others were asking. I still have that box in the same condition. Why would I buy JL when I can get FI..... I never complained to u about your prices, u decided to post about how much I was looking to spend, really wasnt that serious considering I know about three ppl that can build the box... Get off my **** about this already.

btw, why would I tell u who built me the box for $95 anyway? So he can make 100 boxes for bottom dollar? If he posts or even posts pics up of the box then thats what it is...not really that serious.

for 1 jmanpc wasnt making money on boxes he had some spare wood that he build boxes out of he built a couple when he as on a box high and now ask him to build one for that and i bet he turns it down... and he was in a itch to use his new table saw then
