    im going to be packing about 1200 watts, i think im fine in that area. i have a sealed box in my other car 2 10" at 1200w and it is nice. im just looking for a good box, if u know of a better 1 for a good price plz do tell.

    it looks like another junk ebay box IMHO

    If it's not built to spec for the woofers you are using do not bother. If you've ever heard a box built to spec you will not believe the difference it will make

    specs for sealed boxes are no big deal, in fact just about any ten will sound great in .75 cubes. screws will only split mdf so thats why its better to use nails. i think it would be great. i have one ten with 300 watts and it sounds great so two with you amp will be just what you are looking for.

    There are a lot of other variables that will impact whether or not your speaker sounds good. Not all speakers are equal. Screws may split MDF, but quality builders like MrMarv pre drill and counter sink all screws so that isn't an issue.

    I have a box built by Marv and am VERY satisfied.

    The thing you have to be careful about with these cheap boxes is mounting depth. Often times they aren't built well and your speaker, which is already a tight fit, doesn't fit properly.

    oh yeah the price is BS for sure! I'm buying two JL 10's and an amp from a buddy for 100. I know that one is for shallow subs but i'm gonna make something similar myself. Spend some quality time in the ole workshop.
