Whats the difference in buying a 60 dollar ported box on ebay and paying 230 bucks for someone to build it really?
A prefab box is just a common/generic airspace and tuning. They tend to be peaky and most have no bracing and many are built with less then adiquit materials.
As for pricing on custom encloses normally depend on how large it will be, extra options you want, and shipping. Not to mention they are built 100% for your application.
1,400+ designs since March 2011...
I have my PM's turned off, please email at Ryan@RAM-Designs.com
Only 40 Hz tuned enclosure I would put a sub in is a properly designed 4th order bandpass
I'll make it worth it to ya - 90% of the output and sound quality from your setup is not based on the subs, but the box! Now you know why it's worth getting a proper enclosure built. When I have money and am starting a system, my focus is on the tools, wire, and enclosure, not the subs or amps.
Too bad you're on the other side of the u.s.
I'd build it for the cost of materials...$30-40

Nothing against any of the builders on here but Mike is one of the best builders on this site. Hell I will just go ahead and say he prob is the best on here... Again nothing against any other builder. Pro you do some very nice boxes also and ram u do some great designs but mikes work is just simply amazing. He has built e1 of my box's and will be the only one that ever does them for me.
P.S Cmon guys your telling me those $60 ebay boxes that are tuned in the high 50hz range and built with 1/2" mdf and held together by hot glue arent good boxes.....LOL
