    Re: will my small box mess up my sub?

    i built my box for $50 myself...
    its not that hard. just precision and know how to use a hand saw and all...
    your first sentence... terrible.
    kicker and small boxes = terrible output.
    the small box may over heat the subs.

    you can build the whole box with just a jig saw but you will need a drill to make a whole where the squares will be in order to be able to get the jigsaw blade in there.

    Go to a pawn shop and pick up a circular saw and a drill. It will be cheaper and you will get better tools that way. You can use a 2x4 and some small clamps for a fence, then all you need is a ruler and a pencil. Not too hard...
