    I believe circuit city makes custom boxes but they charge a bare minimum of 150 bucks here.... not sure about where you are.

    Re: Boxes in hawaii

    well i dont know anyone in hawaii..but

    imo i would rather pay some of the experienced guys on here to make a box and pay the extra shipping to hawaii than overpay circuit city for a mediocre job, because unless your cc has a more advanced staff than the one near here, i honestly wouldn't trust them to take much pride in their worksmanship, not the same pride that folks who do it on the side would...check around a bit though...

    eww indeed...well

    $75 box + $75 s&h = $150, if cc was gonna charge him that by chance, still better off.

    i dunno...i guess thats just how weary i am of circuit city best buy places etc...


    TheAnswer808...now might not be a bad time to flex your box building skills
    seriously though, that way you can do things the way you want, no clue of whether available resources would be any different there but the big home made diflicted looking boxes always hit hardest

    Tell ya what man......you seem to be in a pretty confusing position right now.

    Hit me up on aim or shoot me an email. I'd be more than willing to help you in any way tht I can.

    Shipping a large enclosure to HI would probably be pretty pricey, so I'm not sure that buying from me will be your best venue, but like i said, I'd be more than willing to assess the situation and offer any help that I can

    Thanks for the referral Morris85. I'm glad to see my reputation precedes me.

    Try building it yourself. It isn't that hard. Just get the dimensions from someone.

    I'm with biabia on this one. Box building is all about practice. Just remember: If at first you don't succeed, you're only out materials

    You could also build him and box and ship it to him if he wished
