I need a big box (10ft3) roughly, built for my home theater. Is there anyone that can do this for me here in Colorado?

I don't think there has been anybody on this board building and shipping boxes for several years now. There's just too many "good enough" prefab options out there and cost of freight to ship anything worthwhile would be monstrous.

If you have some plans drawn up you could probably find a regular carpenter or cabinet shop local who could build something for you. Many years ago when I was too busy to do one myself I just gave plans to a dude who was a carpenter who did finish, siding, etc. and he did a fantastic job.

Ideally on something that big you will want to have it well braced inside. People who haven't done speaker cabinets may underestimate how much wood will flex on big panels so just be sure to stress the importance of adding support.

Several years ago I had a box built by a cabinet shop ( like kitchen cabinets not speaker cabinets ). I drew out exactly what I wanted and they did a excellent job. This was during the winter when they were slow, so they were glad to get the work.

No Tennessee. His pricing shipped will be less than what you will pay local.

If you only want a local builder then Google car audio and home theater companies in your area.

This box is 7 cubic feet net and is being shipped. It costs a ton to ship these boxes over a certain size:


I think this box is being shipped as well, it's 10 cubes:

Like I say, it's expensive to ship these. We do it all the time.

My builder was in Colorado and just moved. Just barely missed him.

So no luck on the local carpenter shops? If you designed it a skilled carpenter would be able to build it easily. And you could get it stained since it’s going in your home.

Hate to say it but Facebook will be your best bet with finding someone local to build it.

Try and find a Colorado bass group.
