    How much would this custom enclosure cost from a shop by you? (pics)

    So if you were to have a shop by you custom build this box for you, how much do you think they would charge? A few details about the box: it has a double layer baffel, .75'' MDF used, swappable port system (one for tuning to 50-ish hz and DD port at 32hz), 3.5-4ft^3, incredible attention to detail (ports have 45degree elbow to reduce turbulence, ALL edges rounded, quality bolt terminals, every possible seam caulked, dowel bracing as well as a brace to help hold the weight of the port, etc). Thanks!
    Sorry for the big pics

    Not all, just two This is more along the lines of this section as it is an enclosure build thread, but look where I got the most helpful responses That's why I posted it in both. and PV audio, that's the whole point, I did build this myself to my own specs, but as far as it being to your own specs, that's why I said custom. How much would this cost to be built to your own specs from a shop (not yourself)?

    Possibly selling it (don't necessarily want to but it's huge and I want to possibly try with fiberglass), but to a buddy so I don't want to rip him off. I don't want to rip myself off either though cause this box actually took me a long time to build and was quite a pain. Just trying to get some real world figures

    lol i went to a car audio place here and i asked about a box for my dd9515, and they quoted me at $500. They tried to tell me the cost alone on the materials was about $150.

    so i'm sure u could get a good penny outta that box

    seeing they used a nail gun and couldnt get the nails in correctly i would say its not a good box. i started to use a nail gun a for awhile on my tester box's, but it doesnt make a good tight seal. and i absolutely hate the idea of a removable port. spl box's and daily driver box's are much different than just tuning. in some case's tuning +/- 10hz will only yield .1 db difference. fisher customs would have been much better.

    The purpose of using a brad nailer is to hold the wood together until the glue dries. I hope you used wood glue on the tester boxes. If they were comming apart, you didn't use enough glue.

    but how do you clamp the pieces together while nailing them?

    you can shoot a nail through your arm and into a wall, but your arm wont actually be nailed to the wall...

    *dont try this

    realistically, you're selling a second hand box, it appears to have about $80 worth of materials maybe, so its probably worth $100...

    I normally sell second hand boxes for the cost of materials, or less... you haven't custom made this box for someone, you made it for yourself, and are now selling it second hand.
