    Possibly a good pre-fab box?

    Hey all, I am gonna be puchasing a L5, and don't feel like building a box, and there are no box builders around me. SO, I found this pre-fab box at HiFi, and for some reason I am kinda likin it. Now, I know, i know, pre-fabs are just a bad idea but I am wondering what you guys think about this one:

    you mean they aren't telling what it is? Isn't there a calculation that could be made to find that out? If there is, what is it?

    expect high 30's to low 40's tune from a prefab if it doesn't specify... they're really not as bad as everyone says, they're decent for the price, it's just the tuning that turns most people off...

    The only decent Ported boxes that were prefabs were audio enhancers

    That's the only pre-fab I would ever go with.

    Where did you come up with that? In my experience, port tuning for pre-fab is usually low, too low. Like ~20 low.

    you must not have much experience with prefab boxes...i sell audio enhancers...and to my knowledge...they have never produced a box tuned lower than mid-high 30's...i have yet to see a pre-fab box tuned to low 20s....

    Would have been nice if they specified the thickness of the wood used.

    That and most pre-fab boxes aren't made to withstand huge powerfull subs and thousands of watts, they would fall apart.
