    Post some videos of your boxes vs crap boxes hopefully you can get the point across.

    That's my 2 cents, hope it helps.
    There will be vids and numbers, but I have not put that much time into testing yet. The whole point of this thread was to get an idea of price point and see if there would be any market for it. I'm not trying to prove what my boxes can do just yet.

    I think if you want to make money on it.....you will not be in a great position.

    I think if you want to do it to have fun and break even.....you could maybe do it.

    If you want to lose money on it and make people happy, then you can for sure do that.

    Birch vs mdf has been argued plenty. I would think to an educated consumer the wood WOULD matter. Acoustic properties no, not a huge difference. Strength, durability and weight however are a huge difference

    Your welcome!
    It's worth a shot, you probably wouldn't have huge start up costs.

    I told you the truth, how am I telling you how to operate you "business"? I understand you are passionate, but allowing that to cloud your judgement will not help you earn any kind of respect or business. I'm trying to help you, taking what I say as negative or personal is your first step to not making a better and practical business decision.

    I'm sorry I told you how FedEx and UPS operate, however, if you read their SOP on their site it clearly explains what I just told you.

    Ok, so you do have a target market then. People who are educated on audio. That is a very slim market....as you can see from this forum itself there are not too many that are educated on car audio.

    For the general public, they do not care what it is made out of.

    They care about:

    1. Price
    2. Does it fit without modifying anything.
    3. Can they put it in easily with little to no tools.
    4. Does it work.

    If the answers are:

    1. Cheap
    2. Yes
    3. Yes
    4. Yes

    Then you have a winner on your hands.

    Which will put you in direct competition with ebay vendors selling enclosures at $70 shipped... or what ever crazy prices they have for the foreign prefabs
