    is bracing and 45 in corners really worth the money?

    I'm looking at a few boxes on ebay and I can buy a decent 100 dollar box that match's specs for my dd 2510 or I can pay 140 and get one with 45s in the corners.. both pretty identical boxes.

    or i can pay 180 and get bracing 45s and overall nicer looking box.



    thanks for your input

    100 dollar ebay box a prefab, and not worth it. Find one of our box builders it will be better and last a whole lot longer here are a few guys on here

    It's not so much whether 45's are worth the money. It's whether the box is and how it's put together. Just because t's the right volume and says its the right tuning doesn't mean it's to the specs of the sub.. Of you're going to spend the money, I would suggest having someone on here build it, whether its myself, @pro-rabbit , or @Moble Enclosurs

    I agree. There is much more to enclosures then just a few small things. I can also tell you to get the most out of that DD prefab is in no way the way to go. While I was working for AQ/DD that was an issue we heard/seen far to often. A shop tossing those subs into prefabs and then getting complaints about them.

    bracing yes
    45s not really. i usually take liquid nails and smooth out the corners. i used 45s in my last box. i dont think they are all that.

    You can never have too much bracing and imo 45s are a must if using a slot to smooth the airflow as the width of the port widens when a bend occurs.

    Re: is bracing and 45 in corners really worth the money?

    well I my main concern is having a custom box that will be identical to a prefab as far as specs. I kind of already know what tuning I want, it seems like having a jl w7 prefab box would suit me.. Is this correct, even if it's built with great care ?

    Tuning is relative to the application. There is no "magic" number to tune to to be honest. Also, a prefab is simply a horrible idea. They are not constructed very well and are never designed/built for your personal goals or application.

    The best bet is to have one built custom to your application and goals. I replied to your quote already with some pricing and options. Should help a little with what you are looking for.
