1.5 - 1.85 cu ft sealed for a 15", carpeted, single baffle.

I'm too lazy, and I don't know how to carpet.

PM me with offers, thanks guys.

That's an insane price for a 1.5 sealed box picked up, not to mention I'd have to drive 2 hours to pick it up. PioneerSaturn and BjFish wouldn't charge nearly that much WITH shipping included, and they build the nicest boxes on the forum.

Oh no man it's cool, I used to build boxes, and for a box THAT small I'd built it at cost + lunch....for a local. $120 is beyond insane.

$120 isnt that high for a box, its not its a friend doing it for you. A shop would probably cost more.

No thanks...that's a 6 hour round trip.

Unless I get any good offers tonight..I'm going to order the box from Dimension Audio....it's about as nice as it gets for less than $100 shipped.

This is by no means a flame, so don't take this the wrong way. But a 1.5 cu ft. box would only require like 1/2 of a 4'X8' sheet of MDF. Lets assume it uses the whole thing. Ok thats 30 bucks in wood, 10 bucks for some terminals, 10 bucks for 2 yds of carpet and another 10 bucks for the spray on adhesive. 60 bucks net. So double that @ 120 seems a bit steep, it's not even including shipping, that involves him driving to come get it. Sorry is this is offensive, just tellin it like it is.

i got people who charge materials x2 for a box...so if its 30 for all materials its 60..but if materials comes out to 60 then its 120....just how it is.....

Well, double the actual cost for time? A simple square box would take a couple hours of time with 24 hours to cure and maybe another hour to carpet it. Never mind... I'll just stop talking :laugh:
