    box prices

    I'm not going to be getting a box yet, but for future plans, how much would it cost for to have a box made for two subs to specific dimensions with the holes cut and carpeted, all ready to install?

    If you do it yourself, cheap.

    If you get it done at a shop, expensive.

    MDF ~ $25-30
    Screws ~ $10
    Liquid Nails ~ $15
    Silicon ~ $10
    Carpet ~ $25-50

    You can build your own, ready to install box, for about $50 - $100, in most cases.

    A shop would charge you $100 +, in most cases, easy.

    Keep in mind, ported boxes will usually cost more. Not like that should make a difference, though.

    I say build it yourself...its real easy and inexpensive. Basic tools and woodworking skills are all you need.

    ^^^ Those estimated prices are in Canadian funds.

    Edit: price goes up as fabrications are added. IF you just want "a box" it will cost you about 40$ Canadian. That's for about a double box. I could do that on a budget. But when you add carpet, carpet glue, etc, your price boosts

    I don't have the tools most likely or the time. Do people on here build boxes for other? If os, do they do everything like cut holes for subs, carpet, put in wire terminals?

    There are some guys on here that build boxes for others.

    But depending on the size of the box you want, the shipping
    charges can be very high.

    If you lived close by me, I'd build it and bring it to ya.

    I took pics of the box we did for the 15" HC, it looks really good, I'll get them up hopefully this weekend. 3.2 cubes tuned to 35 Hz.
