    Nothing, because I always build my own boxes.

    If you can find someone that really likes the flashy look of it, I'm sure you can get $100 or so for it.

    da thing dat intrigues me is that, first u r making the box of plexiglass-like, so see-thru, why in da hell r u gonna carpet over it?!?? it would be pointless then to make it of a glass material.

    because the whole thing isnt made of polycarbonate, and if it was, then it would proably be worth a few hundred in materials?

    i woulda thought if you put some creative talent into it, it would be worth something, guess not. and my concept wasnt to make it see through, just to make windows,

    plus this was my first box, so i made a few mistakes, but learned alot about MDF, silicon, and the poly carbonate...but basically, i just think that no one appreciates the value of it...guess a box is just a box...and creativity causes you to lose money

    No, it's not that.....I like the box, I just wouldn't pay anything for it.

    Well I'm sure you can find someone to buy it....put it up on eBay. You should be able to get at least $75 or $100.

    or keep the box, sell the driver, and get a dvc thats twice the power?

    Well....if you got another 12, you'd have to make sure that it would perform well in that enclosure. Personally, I would sell the box, buy another sub, and build another box specifically for that sub.
