    They are running a bit higher in price than usual, you can find one for 170$ shipped sometimes. Just have to keep on eye out.

    30-32Hz if you like to play Lows most of the time, 33-35Hz if you play a real mix of music all the time, as a rule of thumb.
    I play about an even mixture of both so probably about 33?
    Also, this place charges 250 for the box. Is that about an average price or is that really high for a custom box in my t-top place.

    33 would probably be pretty balanced. 250$ is pretty decent, but it depends how oddly shaped it has to be to fit the space, if it's just a square box it might be pretty high.

    Probably average price for a shop built box. Someone on here would probably build one and ship it for cheaper.

    Its gotta be like square, but with a tilt in it to avoid hitting the trunk so I guess fairly oddly shaped.

    Sounds simple to me, just a wedge shaped box, I bet you could have one built and shipped to you cheaper than 250.

    If you want loud 35-36hz would be a good tuning while staying musical.

    There are many box builders on here who build higher quality boxes than most shops. They have many and many transactions under their belts. They will ask for specific dimensions to assure proper fit. It would be well worth your time to get at least a very good box design and have the shop build that for you.

    I hold this specific shop in pretty high regard , they've been at it since the 80s and do a very nice job.

    Hey man, I went and talked to a guy about a box today and the shop said to tune it at like 38hz to be more musical. Compared to what you said that sounded really high and I wanted to know you're input on the situation

    Id trust 75% of builders here for advice over pretty much any local shop.
