    Need Help picking out enclosure for my subs

    hello, I am new to the forum and soon I will be buying 2 alpine 15" type r's. I don't have the time to build my own box so I am looking to buy one online. I want a ported box and the only requirement is that the width is less than 44". The reason I need help is because I'm not really sure what boxes are a good choice. If I could get maybe a few models that you that you feel would work well that would be great because I'd rather not buy a box and it be complete crap. thanks alot

    if you can find some one close to you maybe not ,pre fab boxes are a waste of money

    ^this being a personal opinion from one person, honestly if you don't go buying junk on ebay there are a few good quality enclosures out there that won't cost an arm and leg. I'd guess that buying a good quality prefab Enclosure would work just fine for your needs.

    well pre fabs are usually tuned too high , not made very well and the wood is 5/8ths most of the time not 3/4 mdf either
