    prefab'd box for hfx12d4 subs?

    Nailed some hfx subs dirt cheap locally. I cant build a box for **** and this is just a budget build system. Im cruising around on ebay etc looking for a box thats good enough for 2 of these subs.

    specs on subs
    Minimum Sealed Box Volume 1.25 cubic feet
    Maximum Sealed Box Volume 1.25 cubic feet
    Minimum Ported Box Volume 1.6 cubic feet
    Maximum Ported Box Volume 2.0 cubic feet
    Top-Mount Depth 5-5/8"
    Cutout Diameter 10-15/16"


    Im looking at the boxs from this ebay seller :
    12" Dual Vented Ported Subwoofer Enclosure Sub woofer Box 3/4 MDF - BXV122-GR | eBay

    hes got some sealed and ported boxs for around 45 bucks with free shipping. I really like the clean sound from sealed box's. The kid in me also loves rattling mirrors with the ported.So ported or sealed,it doesnt really matter to me. Im somewhat new to the sub world. I got most of everything down but when it comes to matching subs to box's.

    Im running a ****** box now that someone built with 2 fosgate subs and a mono amp. Im giving those to my brother for his mazda. So a new box is a must. im keeping the amp. Box size doesnt matter to me as its going in the back of a k5 blazer.

    If anyone can help me find a box for under $60 that these subs will work best in,id greatly appreciate it.

    Build it on your own. Best cheapest way to get it and with much better quality then a prefab in most cases.

    Just hit up craigslist and snag a sealed enclosure with close the right specs. Then just reseal it and you should be ok for the most part.

    I'd say just buy a sealed with close specs.... if you're going pre-fab though, just don't buy ported.

    mine too, its a JLA pre enclosure, came with a W6v2 and they used an Aeroport even. i measured to see what it was tuned to and its either 34hz or 35 hz as i can't remember exactly now. but sounds awesome. had it for a couple years now and can't complain, still looks brand new.

    I noticed S/O (sound ordnance) has some very well braced pre fabs and dirt cheap too if you don't get it from CF of course.
