    My friend paid a shop $6,000 for a setup with 2 12" W7's and a fiberglass enclosure w/ amprack. 6 months later, Fiberglass cracked and vinyl is peeling everywhere. Def. save yourself a ton of money, do it yourself. Shouldn't be too hard.

    That box isnt hard to make at all. It is spiced up with some effects, but isnt difficult to build what so ever. The job is doen clean and looks nice... materials to make the box your self would cost aprox. $150.00 to seel in a shop and installed could be charged for up to probably on average $1200.00. But it all depends on the reputation of the shop and the people who work there and how well they can sell you the products. Also where you are from has alot to do with it. Yreka California you wouldnt likely find any customers who could afford that or would want to pay for that. Hollywood on the other hand you could charge someone $3,000.00 probably. People pay for that "wow" that they get from their friends and girls....

    By giving an extra 2" arround the window opening, you can glue the window in place using glue. Also Countersink the holes to mount in place wiht screws. using 3/4" screws, place one about every 3" or so. Also, use nothing less then 1/2" thick. YOu dont want that acrylic to flex at all. This should give you an air tight, bullet proof aplication of the window. YOu don't only want the window to not flex, you don't want it to vibrate. YOu do not wnat any internal reflections from the frequencies being bounced arround inside the enclosure.... Though the sub produces only lower frequencies and wont give too much frequencie reflection, you still want that window to be rock solid.

    Another method, and probably the prefered, is to use "t" nuts on the exterior of the box, ensuring they fit flush with the panel, and use machine screws from the inside. YOu can use either bolt heads, or allan key type heads. which ever floats your boat.
