hey i see ported enclosures on ebay for around 30-50 buccs. has anyone bought one? i was looking at a 12 inch box in particular ported to 30 hz. theyre a lot cheaper than what people charge on here (no offense).. just wondering what the difference is? this one is 2.4 cubic foot (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=50568&item=5761615222&rd=1) and i need one for an idMAX.. would it be good?

Those are solid boxes. I bought from that guy before, got a box quite similiar to that one. Very nicely done, in my opinion.

I purchased my first enclosure on ebay, it was a dual 12" tuned to 40hz, 3.4 cubft. Was a good prefab enclosure. I purchased my girlfreinds on ebay single 12 ported enclosure and was cheap, but cheaply made and already had holes in it everywhere so be cautious plus they put a good price but shippin will kill you on some.

HOLY $HIT that shipping kills me. 43 dollars for shipping which is more expensive than the item itself.. that would be about 80 total. maybe i should dig up another 60 and get one from moe lester??

that box is 2.4 cubic feet BEFORE subwoofer and port displacements. Using only a 1" wide port (which is not enough port area, its just an example) the box will be 2 cubes minus sub displacement. youll end up around 1.85 cubes and horrible port noise. If you plug in a 2" wide port, youll end up around 1.6 cubic feet.

This comes out of our state of the art manufacturing plant in Texas -- not some "sweat shop" in China (like our competitors' products).

Wow. I didn't know those poor Chinese kids made sub enclosures...

I bought an eBay enclosure - it was horribly tuned. Built strong, but sounded like crud. :)
