work, yes, maximize those subs, no. If you can glue and screw wood together, you can take a cut sheet to Home Depot, Lowes, or whatever store like that you enjoy going to, you can build your own box for less then half the cost of that.

correction, the box is $90, the shipping is $60. so thats 150. You can build your own for about $30 and it will sound better. Hell, the corner of my sheet of MDF I bough has about a 3 inch chip taken out of it, so my wood cost me $15 and the total box with a tube of squeeze caulk and some screws was about $20

Which direction are you going to have the subs facing?

12-09-2007, 02:51 PM
If you use just the square part in the front to simplify your build, so you dont have to make it come in and up for that part in the back, you still get about 5.5^3ft. Plenty of room for the 2 12s and a good size port. you can do subs up, and port back or foraward (I would probably go back) should turn out nice though.

yes i want the subs facing up so it looks the best but the only problem i have next is finding someone to build me the box it has to be local so i can take my truck to them and let them get the exact dimensions

I'll build it for you. I live in Jacksonville, and I'll be there in a week.

given what you have said, make box external dimentions 18w X 26l X 25t, put subs on top, do a port to the rear, 16.5w, 3t, and 19.25L. This will give you about 4.55 tuned to about 33hz, should sound pretty good for what your going for.

You have a PM
