    plexiglass box?

    ive seen some plexiglass boxes on ebay:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=14945

    and i wasnt sure if they were any count, or if they might lower the sq or spl quality or the how hard the subs hit in general, anyone know anything about these?

    From what I understand, a box is a box.. the material is not relevant (mostly).. as long as it's sturdy.. That said, they should sound the 'same' as if the box was MDF, concrete, fiberglass, or paper mache (that would have to be ONE THICK BOX )..

    But, at $650 you are nuts.. you can get your own 3/4" plexi and build your own I'd think.. Course, that takes a bit more skill than an MDF box.. but that price is crazy (if you ask me)

    (2) 12" Pioneer Premier 1241DVCs in sealed MDF box (gonna glass them eventually) ($69 each)

    (2) Lanzar Vibe248 1200 watt 2 chnl amps ($119 each)

    It's bump'n GOOD!

    the price is with the 2 10L7's. its 650 for all that. not bad at all for someone that can't build a plexiglass box. that would be like 250 for the box and like 400 for the subs.
