This may sound nuts, but in all my years as an operations manager and sole proprietorship, I used this marvelous invention known as a calender. I could always look to the right and find a day on it where I would be finished with current customers work, and be able to move on to the next customers job. If I find myself having to chase down someone to give them my business, I can only imagine how things will go once they have my money.
    So, to sum it up:
    A- Bite the bullet and hire the locals.
    B- Buy prefabs and make do
    C- Build your own boxes
    Then shop's pizz and moan when ppl buy stuff off the internet.600 for a box that isn't for competition is outrageous.Option C is the only way to go anymore.Buy a used circular saw,(bits and blades are cheap)jig saw,drill,wood glue and screw's.After the initial purchase boxes can be built for 50.00 after that.Well worth the savings imo.Lot's of box building programs online.Good luck op.

    jig saw is better than a router? well i know its not but is that what you prefer? than just sand up the cut to make it nice nd smooth?

    i have a circular saw, drills, wood and glue can be bought. a jigsaw isnt that much money but is it easier to use than a router? routers make perfect circles

    Re: please give me your honest opinion on this box

    All my boxes I've built has been done with a Jigsaw for the sub cutout. You won't get a perfect circle, but it'll be darned good if you take your time.

    Also I would recommend getting a design from Buck who posted here earlier. He's a wizard at box building. There are others that are good on here as well.



    Bought From: mylows10(2), michaellane
    Sold To:
    Traded With:

    HU: JVC KW-500
    Amp: RF R1200-1D (Roughly 650 into each sub)
    Subs: 2 SA-12s in 4 Cubes @ 32 Hz (Designed by Buck)
    Speakers: Factory JBL System
    Wiring: Knu KCA (CCA) 4 Gauge

    yep im going to see. checking out these 2 local shops on price quotes.... the thing is not about building a box, its about the space in the trunk there is to work with. the space in the 2008+ Honda accord has wierd grooves i can only go like 13 inches high and 30 inches wide. its going to be raised off the floor cuz of humps in the trunk from the wheel arches

    Ground Shaker W7P 1 12 12" Ported JL W7 Pro Subwoofer Enclosure

    thats the box and i according to these calculations it says it has 2.61596 in the12volt box calculator

    you guys think this would be good for a 12 inch SSA XCON?

    3 Cu. Ft. Custom-Ported MDF Subwoofer Enclosure for 12" Round Sub (3.0 @ 35Hz)

    i would get a MSW enclosure over ground shaker if we are talking about prefabs...

    SSA subs cannot stand being in small @ss enclosures, might as well go with a gigantic sealed enclosure for the Xcon if you dont have the room or $ and time for a proper enclosure. They aren't too bad in a sealed box.

    Mids/Highs: PPI ION 520.4 - bought from trumpet
    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS
    Front stage: Phd FB 6.1 6.5 mids with jbl ms-62c tweets and crossovers on 130 rms each.
