has anyone bought a pre-made speaker box off of e-bay. if so, did it seem like it was made well? i'm looking at this one or anything around that size as it is perfect for my trunk. http://cgi.ebay.com/SLANTBACK-15-CAR-AUDIO-SUBWOOFER-SUB-SPEAKER-BOX_W0QQitemZ280177780759QQihZ018QQcategoryZ50568Q QssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem . but for 8 bucks???

not even 3/4" mdf.... what sub you putting in there? I personally would make my own.

Its probably ok, and if thats what you want get it.

yea, i noticed that just a sec ago. it's a 15" RL-p. i would like to run it sealed as i don't have a bunch of room in the trunk, and i've only had one ported box that i really liked. as far as making one, i would love to. i have to tools, just not the time. working 2 jobs and taking care of the little one takes up all the time i would have to make one myself. and the local shop charges a pretty steep fee for the ones they make.

one thing it needs though is the back slanted so it can squeeze as close the the seats as possible.

What are you looking to put in it 1.65 cubic feet seems pretty small for a 15.

Just saw the rl-p, they recommend a box that's nearly twice the size of this one. Call a couple local shops ask them how much to build a 3 cubic foot sealed box. I definately wouldn't go with 5/8 mdf. Use at least 3/4 especially if you plan on putting a decent amount of power to it

i could possably go up to 2 cubes, and i would fill it with poly-fill.
