Looks like you can't handle Ciara's goodies...

Can I not make a post looking for some serious replies without getting insulting ones? If you don't have an answer then please don't waste my time or yours.

Box is 18 months old they will not take it back they offered me a credit instead

If I had the tools I'd build my own as everyone suggested.

The Q logic boxes we sell at my best buy seem to hold up alright. There aren't a whole lot of box manufacturing companies i see out there really, so thats why most say to build your own, or find someone who will build one for you. Some good stereo shops will build a box to your specs, but expect to pay a little more for that.

I am having a box designed i can't draw so not even going to attepmt that. But it will basically be flush to the back wall angle downwards then flatten out with the subs firing foward at an angle towards the top of the seat and an amp rack in the middle covered by plexiglass. Cost $150 with neons under plexiglass. Probably be done in 2 months (when i have the money)

I just went to Home Depot and bought a couple of 4x2' boards of 3/4" MDF, a box of screws, a 4" diamter drainage pipe of some sort, and some silicone. It all cost me a little over $30 IIRC. Once I calculated my measurments and such I cut everything to spec and screwed/glued everything together...damn thing hits HARD for a single 12"...it hit better in my hatchback of course (what it was built for, now I have the truck and it barely fits behind my seat). Now I'm thinking about a 1.75 ft^3 sealed enclosure for more excursion and hopefully a little room to lean my seat back! lol

R/T Competition Series are heavy duty. I got the older (cool looking) Bandpass box that had a front window (huge) and the box alone (empty) is 75 or 80 lbs. They are nice. I got it when they first hit the market, spent 200 something on it. Look into one, IDK about the new designs tho.

check out my cardomain and let me know what you think of mine. Its a downfiring box for two 10's. I am changing my system around and will be getting rid of that box. I'll sell it cheap. It handles Ciara's Goodies. lol

I had a fourth order sub box in my old 95 ext. cab s10 with 2 sony xplodes and they pounded. The boxes are really easy to make.

If you are going to go with 4 subs you can make one like this.

I built my box with 1 1/2 sheets of mdf, about 4 bottles of silicone, a box of screws, and a little bit of carpet from home depot. It took me and my friend about 2 hours to make.
