    Seriously, no disrespect intended, but...

    Why is it that everyone these days wants something great for nothing? I've had 6 people today who were referred from past design customers asking for box designs, and as soon as I told them 10 dollars or 6 dollars or whatever the cost may be for them, they immediately got upset and said that they didn't expect to pay for the designs. If you want free designs, Brad was gracious enough to make them available at the top of this forum. However, if you want someone to spend hours of their time fine tuning and tweaking something specifically tailored to your needs, it is less than reasonable to expect that work to be complimentary. Many of you know I strongly supported Moe's posting of the designs as it would eliminate just what I'm talking about now. If you want a design, theres pages of them in a sticky at the top of this forum. If you want custom work, you should be prepared to pay for it, and I personally believe that 8-12 dollars isn't much especailly considering it can take hours to perfect a design. If any of you fellow builders or designers agree with me, that's cool, if not, that's also fine, but I'm just tired of having my time wasted by people who don't realize that it does take some time and effort to meet their specific needs.

    6 dollas! OOOOH WEEEE!!! thats a whole lotta money!

    Whats wrong with you, you should work for free. jk

    Just give them what they pay for, if its free get out your crayons or fingerpaints and go to town like a preschooler thats been off their ADD medicine for a couple days and say "heres your box plan, you get what you pay for."

    Re: Seriously, no disrespect intended, but...

    I'd personally pay for a design if I needed it... The trouble it would save and the improved sound of a proper design tailored to the correct space would most likely bbe well worth the 10-$12 you might pay.

    Yea I just put that amp in yesterday and I like it a lot on my new mids (Daytons). It's pretty damn clean....

    I really don't have a need for that bass knob but it wouldn't hurt having it for if I ever sell that amp...
