    subzone or probox??

    I need a box for my 2 Kicker CVX12's. I am trying to decide to go with the subzone ZV212-2030 or the probox 212SPB. The probox has 2.25 cu. ft. per side which is perfect for the CVX's, the subzone has 2 cu. ft per side. I'm not to familiar with the probox HDF. Shed me so light please!!

    being able to build your own boxes is definitely a good thing. The first one may not be perfect, but it's a start. And the more you do it, the better you get...and soon you can probably build boxes for money, which can make you a little extra money on the side.

    True that, but given my time, space, and lack of electrical power tools one would need in order to build such a box if you will, is a lot of stuff I don't have. So, plus with this whole technology thing with HDF AND MDF, I think I was more so looking for info or enlightenment. Thanks for the info though!

    Do you know someone who has owned a probox? or have you had or heard one? I'm just curious.

    I had one....solid boxes, but normally tuned too high for my liking...this was about 4 years ago though.

    I know that the subzone box is tuned to 30hz. Which is pretty low. How much higher do you think the probox would be?

    The one I used was at 36-37 I think...too high for a JBL Gti, for me at least.
