    Re: Anyone Need a Box

    Dude, you use particle board for your boxes!!! You should never use particle board for boxes, maybe for amp racks and fake floors, but thats about it. No offense dude, the boxes look decent, just use MDF instead.

    Re: Anyone Need a Box

    When I have built my own I used smart board.
    Its wieghs about 96 lbs a sheet of 46 1/2" by 81 1/2"

    so it heavier than 1" mdf by like 20 lbs a sheet lol
    Its also a crap load more expensive though
    44 bucks a sheet but i can get it free. I am just toooooooooooooo lazy to bother making my own box. too much time involved with calculations and such. so loneranger built mine and it should be here tomorrow or monday so I am told

    Well if every car audio shop told you fosgate was the best would you believe them? Sorry, had to add my sarcasm.

    Try useing MDF and see the diffrence on a meter. If there is none, then shoot out the MDF.. but with MDF there is so much extra you can do...

    Re: Anyone Need a Box

    Where the hell do you buy MDF?? By me it's at most $20 for a 4'x8' sheet. I wouldn't pay $35 either, but there seriously is a difference.

    its all i can afford to buy
    Then you really don't know where to look. Rockford can actually be pretty expensive compared to other brands that can perform the same as, if not better, than rockford. Not to say that rockford is bad, but there is alot more out there for the money.
