Rude noob is rude.


Build a proper MDF box for starters, play around, get your hands dirty. Make a fancy lookin' fiberglass box down the road to show your homies what those Fosgates can do their CVRs.

They will be all like, "ohhdaayyummm dawggg, lemme checc dat."

Far from being in a magazine. . . . and little did you know, you are qualified to open a car audio shop as is. You'd be baffled at what some shops don't know.

Who said you are a "thugged out OG" ?

Thugged out OGs don't drive Toyotas, we can assume you are AMRUICAN.


Alright then, then to answer your question.. we need a bit more info..

What are your goals? SPL or SQ? [trying to get LOUD or sound good]

How much power do you have at hand? [amp]

Start with MDF, once you find box specs you like, then look into Fiberglassing as it is a lot more work.. it would **** to make a fiberglass box only to hate how it sounds. . .


You said you aren't happy, is that with sounds.. or looks?


Edit: Oh! I said you were a thugged out homie, LOL. I didn't read post above this one . . . Ah, I forgot..

i want sound quality but also a bit loud........... what does it take to be in a magazine? also i don't want to open a mediocre shop i want top of the line employees equipment ect... so you say start with the specs from the box wizard from the Rockford site with mdf see how it sounds then fiberglass it? then hope it sounds the same?

A fiberglass box and MDF won't sound exactly the same, there is some difference.. but hardly noticeable.

Sure you can try the RF site and see if you like the suggested box specs.. If you don't tweak it a bit and try again.

Tune for what kind of music you are trying to play, if you are just getting this substage for personal use, driving music with some depth tune according to your genre of choice, if you are trying to get show quality window flexes.. you will have to tune according.

Unless you are willing to pay someone to design for you.. give this a read, watch those videos.

Torress box calculator tends to be well known and used.

With your aspirations and goals, I'd recommend start doing some reading on various topic along with some practical work. To answer your first post try mdf first, I can guarantee you will be making a few boxes to find out what really you like and using mdf is the easy way.

In future, try to give as much info as possible when asking for help, if you dont know just ask and be patient some one will help, good luck on your venture.
