    custom box builders

    hey i was jus wondering if some of u box builders could give me a price range for this box i might have made for me? and the back piece i would like to be plexiglass if possible. its gonna have 2 10" se's put in if i get the money. its about 2 cubes each ported so i think they will do good with a hifonics Z1000D amp.
    the ports are supposed to be in the middle of each segment.

    1" plexiglass piece --> $140
    3 sheets of 3/4" MDF --> $60
    Culk/Silicone --> $5
    screws --> $15
    GasketTape for plexiglass --> $23
    Fiberglass to ensure
    proper plexiglass fitting -->$40
    Box Carpeting -->$10

    ......

    Paying somebody to do it ---> A boatload of money

    3 sheets of 3/4" MDF for $60? Those must be some huge *** sheets.... 2' x 4' sheets are less than 5 bucks at Home Depot around me.

    Sorry was thinking about the wrong wood,

    3 sheets of MDF --> $15
    Even without the plexigass
    paying someone to do it --> A slightly smaller boatload of money

    maybe make a smaller plexiglass window so it doesnt have to be so thick...you could probably build that box out of 1 sheet of MDF(4x8 is a sheet!)...it wouldn't be that bad to build honestly. Do it yourself!

    Oh yea, check some local places that mess with plexiglass, I picked up a couple large pieces of 1/4'' plexi from an automotive repair shop today for free. It was his scrap so he gave it to me!
