    I have to disagree. Not putting any of the builders down here cuz their boxes seem very nice. But go to The Box Guy's Facebook or website and look at some of his work. He stands alone.

    Lol Dave charges so much for boxes it's ridiculous. Built a 4 12" obsidian box for a local with a dual kerf port and charged him less than half of what you paid lol. Box has a flush baffle and also made out of poplar

    Shipping plays a big part in his prices.

    Trust me, he's shipping enough boxes he probably pays crap for shipping. Just for shits my buddy emailed him to ask how much it would be for like an 8" octoport that was 15" long and he was quoted $250 shipped (my buddy lives less than an hour away from him). He just charges a ton.

    I bought a Star Mountain box too and they are quite nice, solid enclosures with nice covering. He matched my trunk carpet almost perfectly. And very reasonably priced.

    Re: The box guy

    Wanted to charge me 150 for a box design sheet and cut sheet not even actually building the box am doing the work myself. Kanga get @ me need some help building a wall in my explorer either 6 or 8 hx2's.

    EDIT: **** my bad was 150 here is his message

    Hey Russ,

    I'm not sure if you'll have enough room left for a decent port with (8) 12's in there, but I can try. I can probably figure something out, but worst case, I'm thinking you could run 6 of them and have plenty of room for port. It would be $150 for the wall plans. You can pay directly on the website at the Custom Order Payment page.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Re: The box guy

    Never heard of him but Id never spend that much on anyone to build me an enclosure. You sir got bent over and raped without lube and you seem to be satisfied with it.
