Anyone use one of these boxes?

Has anyone used one of these boxes? I need to know if it will fit if I take out the jump seat behind the driver seat and if they are any good.
ebay 12" box

This is the sub I'm going to put in it:
12" Pioneer 1000W

You could build it cheaper then what it cost for it plus shipping.

you couldn't build that for $37..........shoot a sheet of 3/4" MDF board is right at $20, then add the carpet at $10-$20 a yard, then the glue at $8 a tube, the caulking to seal the inside joints at $8, the glue for the carpet at $12-$20 a can, box of screws to do it at about $10, and the labor you put into it......

so lets look at this:

-$20 for a sheet of MDF
-$24 for 2 yards of carpet (because 1 yard wont cut it and you will mess up)
-$8 for liquid nail
-$8 for silicone
-$12 for a can of 3M material glue
-$10 for a box of screws
-1.5 hour labor to build it.....

that totals $82 for just material....

lol... there's no way in hell that box is worth anything close to $82 + labor.

plus.... you don't need a full 4x8 sheet of mdf to build that small of a box (i have shoe boxes bigger than that box, lol)

also, garunteed they didnt use screws. for that small of a box, and after proper gluing, screws would not be needed.

$8 for a tube of liquid nails and silicon seems steep... although i dont know the price since i just pick it up and go anyways.

theres plenty of fabric spray that will hold that carpet quite well, so skip on the 12 dollar name brand.

but anyways... i wouldnt even pay the $37 or whatever they're asking for regardless of what the materials may cost.

id still rather build my own and be near the same price range.

i build huge ported boxes for 2-12's for no more than $60 in material. that would cost me 20-30 at most. if you can find a local wholesaler sure you could get it for 15

My last box cost me

Custom plans- $30
Wood-$23
Glue-$8 (the best stuff on the shelf)
Caulk- $6 (two tubes)
Screws- $6
Carpet- $6

And that doesn't include my assembly hours worth, gas to go get supplies, etc etc. I'd say $37 for that box is worth it, if for anything to test how well it is built.
