    JSOW missile conatiner/ Enclosure. These babies don't come cheap.

    My box for my 2 12 hifonics Brutus cost a decent amount only because I had a friend build it and the first box had more wood filler than wood.

    Total costs for 2 boxes
    $60 MDF
    $22 PVC
    $35 Fiberglass and fiberglass Mat
    $12 broken drill bits
    $35 carpet

    Probably would've cost less than half if it was built right the first time

    You learn more along the way



    1974 VW Baja Bug 125HP
    1 Stock blaupunkt speaker

    2000 Chevy Blazer
    18" RIP Low End Monster
    Sundown SAZ3000D

    refs: bought from OldSchoolBoomer; Sicaudio; cd6551; Pbateman; and sub2weeker

    sold to adio25
