    please give me your honest opinion on this box

    So this box has the EXACT dimensions i have to work with in my car, 23 inches wide, 16 inches high and 16 inches deep. its made for the JL W7 so it has extra support up front. i have no clue what the tuning of this box is it doesnt say and has no port dimensions

    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?

    For that price get buck to design u one, and buy the tools. Then build it urself. U learn something from it and it's much more gratifying in the end.

    Re: please give me your honest opinion on this box

    Shops are gonna kill you on pricing. Find an independent builder. If I was to do that same enclosure around here it would start around $160, and adjust depending on if the buyer had any particular requests (kerfing, paint, particular carpet/wrap, logo, etc).

    Honestly, if you ever plan on getting a different subwoofer (at any point),hit up a pawn shop and get some tools. It would cost you about what a good local builder should do a box for, but you'll have the satisfaction if doing it yourself, and have the tools for other projects in the future.

    Another thing, it would be a total shame to put that XCON in anything that's not designed with it in mind. You would just be defeating the purpose of getting something of that caliber, should've just got some Kickers or something if you want to throw them in a prefab.



    Head Unit - Kenwood DDX419
    Front Stage - Kicker ZX200.2 to Infinity CS60.9
    Substage - Sundown SAZ1500D @ 1 Ohm to SSA XCON 15

    i had 2 alpine type r's with the black cones that i just sold lol... im not gonna throw the XCON in a pre fab box i was just saying if this could be a temporary box for like 2-3 months till i get someone to build me a box built for it.

    plus its not just them "building a box", they are going to build the box, make like a front faced panel, raising it off the floor, rounded edges, etc.

    the guy at the shop took all of the specifications for the Xcon sub and hes gonna come up with a design and email me pics by next week. they definaltey know what they are doing, 28 hertz tuning for the xcon should be good no?

    Either buy prefabs, or build your own man. I got a quote for a box for 2 8" subs from a local shop for $ 600.00. I tried 3 different people/companies recommended to me here, and after answering all their questions, I got the same thing, there are people ahead of you. Well, no *****. 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

    So long as you print off a plan and cut sheet, other options may be a local woodworking shop, a cabinet shop, or even riding up on a construction site and finding a cabinet, trim, or framing guy if they will build it on the side.

    i wish i can build my own box, only tool missing would be a router which isnt that expensive to buy. i just dont have the time to do it now i study about 8-10 hours a day for dental school... gonna wait till early next week to see thier price quote. if they say 350-400 ill do it with them cuz they are gonna fix up my floor and build a wall covering the sides too making it look nice and OEM in the trunk. i will ask if they do payments/finance as well.
