View Full Version : Help with price of box.....

03-15-2005, 10:09 PM
I went to my local car audioshop today and asked them for a quote to build a 3.0 cubic feet per sub box, ported...for 2 12 inch l7s. His price---350-400? That seems extremely high for a box and Im wondering what I should be paying for this box? Thanks

I'd consider $150 a more reasonable price...

You can build it for probably $30, but as far as shops around here...boxes typically run $250ish.

i'll beat that.. 300 shipped :)..infact..i have a box for 2 12" L7s sitting in my basement..sealed box little over 3 cubes..3 cubes is too small for ported l7s IMO..need around 5cubes.

Give me your dimensions and I'll build one for $100 plus shipping...

yeah imma get into the box building business along with my PS2 modding business as soon as i learn how to correctly make a TL box :D

Do yourself a favor and build the box yourself. Don;t make the mouoth of the port too big or you'll get port noise. Most Subs need 2-3 cubes but it's all variable from the sub to sub.

^good deal..but 3 cubes is still too small ported.

I was under the impression he meant 3 cubes per driver...so 6 total?

EDIT: PM me if you're interested in my offer.

So true...small ports create port noise...
