    Re: Rate my box!

    Ok I got the pictures with the subs out. I still haven't sanded it down yet because I have been very busy. But here are the pictures:







    You can tell that one hole is bigger than the other but all the screws still screw down and doesn't make a difference.

    Re: Rate my box!

    And threadstarter, take it from me: save your money. Car audio is a fun hobby, yes, but when you're 14, there are many other things you could be spending your money on. Seriously, build up some assets first, that way you can decide what to do with the money when you have a lot of it instead of buying the next bit that you can. In non liquid assets (my car aside), I have about 8-9k net worth, ALL of which is in audio equipment whether it be from drivers, tools, equipment, etc.

    I sometimes wish I had that money as liquid assets instead (liquid means that it's available to spend, so things like credit and tangible cash) now that I want to invest in the market, but I don't. So I just ask you to take it slow, learn a lot then decide if spending thousands and thousands of dollars on audio equipment that you're going to get rid of any way is a good way to spend money as a high school freshman.

    Sorry for the long post, just giving some advice.

    x2. Take it slow and do a lot of research. Maybe look into some SQ stuff as well. This hobby has a lot of different ways to do it.

    But make sure to keep money in the bank to have it there.

    Someone a little pissed that a 14 year old has more ambition and stronger work ethic than you? It's not hard at all to accumulate a few hundred dollars when you're 14. Lawn work, bike routes, etc. Get off the kid's nuts.

    Re: Rate my box!

    Lol. Thanks for the info guys. But I had a paper route for about a year and I made 250 a month. And that all went into my savings account. I have a few thousand in it, and yes my dad did put most of it in there but most of it is from my paper route. But seriously guys, I DO make most of my money by mowing yards. I could easily make 100 in a day. But yes, next summer I'll be 15 and I'm going to get a job at a grocery store or something along those lines and 75% of that money is going into a savings account. And then that's the money that going to go towards my car equipment. My dad has a pretty good job. Well, what am I saying, he has a GREAT job. He makes 24.97 an hour being in the Laborers Union. And my dads going to match what ever I have for my first car. So let's say I have $1,500, then he'd give $1,500. So basically, putting money in the bank has been my plan all along. Sorry for the long a$$ post. Just saying.

    No not really I have had a job and worked since I was 14 I'm just saying no way you will be able to afford all of the stuff that he plans on buying at that age or even mine. Sorry that I live in the real world where I buy my own clothes pay for my own phone car gas and school etc but unless tour parents are helping you out you can't afford to drop thousands on a car elwctricl an that kind of system in high school

    God **** you remind me of lemans23 when he first joined, ****

    And I'm confused, your dad put most of your money in your account, but most of the money is from you? All I'm saying is, wait until you're actually 16, THEN decide on a system. ****, when I first joined I KNEW I would have a 15" SX and a Hifonics bd1500d. I've never had a car audio system to this day, and I don't regret it one bit.

    God****it, shut the **** up. No one gives a **** that you weren't given things. Seriously, there's a group of you on here that are strangely elitist because they worked harder or they endured more than someone else. The fact of the matter is...no one cares. He's got money, he's 14, he wants to get in and get started. End of story; no one needs to hear about "the real world" or whatever nonsensical bullshit you're harping on about. Not everyone lives the same way, and at least he has the humility to say he's no better than anyone.
