    question on a center sub console build

    I have a center console that I made for an s10 .it holds a 10" sub and is all fiberglass , goes from under dash to rear cab wall . What would one charge for this from fist cut to final sanding .im unsure how many hours I have into it , I work on it as my schedule lets me and its for my brothers air bagged truck thats not road ready .I was just curious to what people charge , I cant figur out how to post pics but I have them if someone will post if it helps to see what im talking about .

    Re: question on a center sub console build

    It's hard to determine a price for a one-off, custom piece like that. It's very valuable to someone who wants that exact type of enclosure. But worthless to someone who cannot use it. It's nice though. I would suggest joining an S-10 forum. Better chance of getting some coin for it there.

    I had them same problem after building two enclosures thinking I would keep one and sell the other. Ending up having to use both because no one wanted the 2nd one.



    H/U- Pioneer AVH X-5600BHS
    front stage- pioneer 3way 6x8
    rear fill- pioneer 4way 6x8 and 2-way 4x6
    Amp(s)- Kenwood KAC 1502S (connected to rear 6x8's), Rockford Fosgate T500-1bdcp and Alpine Mrv-M500
    Sub(s)- 2 American Bass TNT1244, each in a 1.7 cubic ft sealed (Yeah that's right, sealed) custom built enclosure
    And a Kenwood 12 in a prefab box.
    Happy, but not finished.

    i would have charged around the $700 range for a center console box with glass work.

    Re: question on a center sub console build

    I only made this one , and its going in my brothers truck , dont plan on selling .as far as how it sounds not sure , internal cubes are a bit more than I think it should be so I dont know . And ideas on how to lessen the air space if i have to .he was gunna use one sub then said no ill use a different one .I like the way it came out exactly what he wanted .I was just curious as to what a shop or some one that does this on the side would charge . I only really make things for myself /friends/family .I honestly never did anything this big before , usually just gauge pods and stuff or all wood boxes .you guys think it looks good ?
