    Re: "DIY" enclosures

    Well we (amber and me) have been talking about this all day here at the house. I'm sure there would be enough interest in this, but I'm not sold on it at this time. I think it would great for mid to large enclosures do to savings on the shipping side. Not ap sure on the anything small. We are still trying to see if we can get a price structure to make it worth it to offer. Not as easy as everyone thinks lol.

    shipping cost + material cost + labor cost + profit margin = customer cost i hear you though, i'm starting an online business (not audio related) and struggling with this too and i have a degree in finance

    If it was only that easy lol.

    In all honesty, a DIY kit does not cut much of any time for enclosures. Which means in order to lower costs we have to just cut profit or they would not sell. So now it is just matter of figuring out where/how to cut the cost in order to get this to work out.

    I see no reason why it won't work though.

    So far from what I can see we will have different "stages" of DIY kits that will allow for different things to added to fit just about any build.

    As soon as we get these prices worked out I will post up and see what everyone thinks.

    Re: "DIY" enclosures

    Great idea! I've actually been looking for someone to send me a pre-cut enclosure. Talked to a few people who were hesitant and didn't thnk it would save much on shipping. Weight will still be an issue, but the savings from a smaller package may help. I think if there is enough demand you will save a good bit of time vs assembling the enclosures. Hope you figure it out though.

    Re: "DIY" enclosures

    Ami done this on CACO. They had a set price debending on cubic foot and had a list of "add-ons" (double baffle, 45's, terminals, rounded edges, etc). Really was quite fair IMHO. But like you said you really only save on shipping

    Yea, on smaller enclosures(around 3ft3 gross) you won't see much of a difference in shipping really. After that size you start to see fairly large shipping differences. Basically when that "bulk rate" takes over for a built enclosure.

    I think we will have enough demand, I just need to make sure it is a price everyone thinks is fair. Which is what I'm most afraid of actually. A rough guess would be 2/3 of the regular enclosure price. That is not a set price or anything, just a rough idea on pricing. Of course it is always plus shipping though.

    We do plan on having various "stages" of DIY kits so that pricing will be adjusted for each level. It will range from "Stage 1" being the most basic enclosure to "Stage 3" which will have all the features our enclosures have and will include carpet as well.

    I was looking at his setup earlier. His DIY pricing is around our enclosure pricing though lol.

    Re: "DIY" enclosures

    Here is an idea of what we are thinking for DIY pricing and such...Keep in mind this is geared more towards larger enclosures as the savings for shipping are much greater.

    All prices are based on basic enclosure designs/builds. Anything this more intrecit will need to be a custom quote. All prices are for NET ft3 (after all displacements).


    DIY Enclosure Pricing:


    FT^3................SEALED........PORTED
    1.0 cubes...........$60.............$87

    1.5 cubes...........$67.............$93

    2.0 cubes...........$74.............$100

    2.5 cubes...........$80.............$107

    3.0 cubes...........$87.............$114

    3.5 cubes ..........$94.............$120

    4.0 cubes...........$100...........$127

    4.5 cubes...........$107...........$134

    5.0 cubes...........$120...........$147

    5.5 cubes...........$126...........$154

    6.0 cubes...........$134...........$160

    All DIY Kits will have 3 stages.

    STAGE 1: $Free
    Basic package..
    All pieces cut to exact size. Sealed or ported options
    3D model
    Assembly Instructions

    STAGE 2: $15
    All Stage 1 plus
    rounded port edges
    45's
    Bracing 1" wooden dowel recessed into the wood.

    Stage 3: $25
    All Stage 1 and Stage 2 Plus
    Double baffle with up to two sub cutouts
    Carpet(basic stock carpet)
    Terminal (up to two)


    We can pre-drill the enclosures for quicker and easier assembly, but that will be based per enclosure.

    Nice! I'm assuming this is +shipping, correct? I'll be needing one in about a week.

    Re: "DIY" enclosures

    Yep plus shipping.

    From what I can tell these are the cheapest "listed" price anywhere. Even based on prices from 2 or 3 years ago. lol I'm sure there will still be the "that is to much" crew..but I can not please everyone. I do try though.

    I think those prices are very fair... A 5 cf enclosure with the stage 3 option would probably still be right around $200 shipped. Where else could you buy a custom enclosure that large for that price shipped to you?

    One idea I have to add to what already looks like a good deal. Maybe add the option of birch (if you have it readily available to you). I know its a little more expensive so you could add to the prices of course. Just an idea.

    Re: "DIY" enclosures

    I can work on that...on average decent birch here is about double MDF(for what I get). I see no reason to make anything off an upgrade of birch..so it would just be the difference in most cases.

    I'm hoping that is how it goes though, it will drastically reduce the overall price of larger enclosures by a large margin. Considering our enclosures and DIY go by net and not gross (which is always miss understood it seems) you get a much larger enclosure for our prices. Stupid slot ports take up way to much room lol.

    Re: "DIY" enclosures

    Glad to hear many will be interested.

    So we are no officially offering DIY kits.

    Seems like from this forum and others we are getting more then enough response to work with it and that should open up for much larger enclosures as well.

    For those interested in fully assembled extra large enclosures we can still freight ship them. You just have to contact us for pricing and what options are available for where you live.

    I'll buy one from you in time. I need a good HT box and haven't farted around with building one because of school. Assembling one would be great though and cuts time in half
