    have you checked alpine's site for specs, i can suggest a box but it is a very common box used with DD's, shockers and other spl subs

    you need to now how many qu.ft is needed inside the box for good sound. go to the website of you speakers brand and find out how big off boxes need to be.

    Building boxes

    Buy particel board 1inch thick the particel board looks like sawdust glued together.

    use 5/8 screws to screw the boxes together and seal the boxes inside and out with apoxy resen.

    use template to cut right size holes in box.

    this is a good way to build your own boxes but it will take time and less money then buying boxes from the store.
