Guys I am sad to say I am closing the internet side of my business at the end of this month....I have come to a decision that I am simply working too much with the load of my FT job picking up and working every night and all weekend long on enclosures for you guys....I have made the decision to spend more time with my family and enjoy life more...I will still be a forum member and I am not closing SMS totally I am just going back to my small town local builds which will give me a LOT of my life back....There are a few of you guys that have my cell number if you do need a box from time to time I can still build you one if you want....I have no intentions of selling my SHOP or SAWS......I will stop accepting new builds as of the 20th of this month so as I can get them shipped out in a timely manner.....I appreciate ALL of the support you guys have shown me but FAMILY is first......

Well your enclosures were amazing, thank you for your time here on the forum man! It's going to be weird not seeing you start a new thread with the new box you are making! Thanks Brian!

Truly a great loss to the community. Your skills are amazing. But i totally agree with your motives. Family should always come first.

Smart move bro. I've always kept my builds local and have plenty of work, and plenty of time to spend with my family. Plus I make a lot more than I could over the internet.

Yeah keep in touch Jim I am not unplugging my saw totally...lol.....yes we went fishing this past Saturday morning and she talked to me about it and that's all it took....Her happiness is way more important than any box or the little amount of money made on it.....She should and always will come first....thanks for understanding guys...

That's why I keep my business at the level it's at now I used to do many installs and quite a few boxes a few years back. But it just was to time consuming and the wife was miserable because the only time we had together was when we were sleeping so I just cut that part out you gotta do what's good for the family

The nice part about having a box building business is that you can start it up again with limited slots for builds if you need some extra cash. Either way, you do great work and I hope you enjoy the family time, it's the most important! I'm guessing you'll be back again in the future, the quality people always are.

Good for you man, I'm sure a lot of people will hate to see your builds go (from the internet) but but when your "hobby" starts to stress you out it can be a little much sometime scaring you away for good. Take the time and remember why you truly love car audio, and your family. GL

Think you will have time to do blue prints of boxes?
A lot of people like me that have the tools and are able to build a box it's that I never learned ports.

It's cool that you are getting time to spend with your family that's the most important thing

I was bummed when I saw the thread because you are second to none at what you do and are always a pleasure to do business with.

But on the flip side I'm happy for you in making the decision to take time for yourself and your family because as you stated it's the most important thing.

Hopefully I can shoot u a txt in the future if I need your help and maybe you will have time to fire up that Porter Cable.

Take Care Brian! And long live SMS :)

Hmm..you said you weren't accepting any new builds after the 20th. Any particular reason you never got back to me via this site or your website? :confused:

After extensive research on buying a ported box, I registered here to get a custom one from you.

No I probably won't but I would recommend Buck for that...I have built a few of his designs for people...He knows this game well....

Hey man I understand and can appreciate your decision after our phone conversations! I wouldn't have even known about this forum if you hadn't mentioned it. I'm excited to receive the box for my silverado this week. Wish you and your family the best!
