:nerd:I'm pretty handy.. but don't know much about building boxes.. But I got handed the short end of a stick.. Great Subs (2 AB XFL 1244)... Great Amp (AB Phantom 4000D)... but really shi**y install.. nowhere near specs... box might be .75 cubed sealed for each sub.. So i'm going to attempt to build a box my self.. Could use a couple of pointers..

If I build a "bad" box, could it mess my subs up??
I'm in a 2010 Camaro.. so I would have to build box inside trunk..
Should I just let the professionals handle it.. or would it be ok to give it a try.. ?? I don't want to try if it will mess my subs up..
I'm trying to go ported.. at least 2-2.5^3 each sub.. Don't really care about trunk space as long as
I can at little stuff back there.

Is A DIY box worth it.. or if I was goign down that road should I just say F*** it and bring $4-500 to someone to make a box?? That's about how much I'm willing to spend..

if you have that much of a budget then contact starr mountain sounds on here. they will build you a box for half that price, and it will be top quality and done in a week.

4-500 bucks too buku! You won't necessarily eff the subs up if you're giving them that large a volume (normally smaller is worse). You just won't necessarily have the best output. Just be careful with your measurements and don't leave any air gaps.
