Sub enclosure company names?

So far I've got Bassworx and Sub Zone...

Any others?

if you really want the best sound and performance have an enclosure built, pre-fab is mediocre at best.

Unless you can or know someone that can design a box that looks as good as the pre-fab boxes, for the same price or less... then I need more names.

Anyone?

Who cares what it sounds like.... it's all about the looks!!




btw... this site is generally suited towards enthusiats... and most of us wouldn't be caught dead with a pre-fab.

Normally I try to help out, but in this case I'll just suggest that you either google "pre-fabricated enclosure" or try eBay.

I would love to try eBay, and the local classifieds, but its easier to search for brand names for the keywords, which is why I'm asking here.

You're right... it's much easier to wait a few hours for us to give you names and then search for those names rather than spending 20 minutes with google or ebay.

I just asked for some help with some manufacturer names, you guys obviously aren't here to help and want to go off topic and hijack the thread, so might as well close the thread.

Guess this is just the online equivalent of what you guys do to deter new faces from appearing at shows.

How is this off topic? I've TOLD you where to look?

This has nothing to do with deterring anyone from going to a show.

Unless pointing someone in the right direction is considered a bad thing?

Try not to bite the hand that informs you... you have asked a lot of questions on here and you have been given a lot of answers, your new to car audio (I assume from your questions) and you contradict yourself (also natural when you are new). If you want to sound your best or be as loud as you can with your subs then go with a custom box, if you are concerned with cost and appearance a pre-fab box is a super option. Some of the prefabs are quite good too.
You have probably spent 50% of your posts asking questions, it seems a little immature to whine at the answers. Jordy has forgotten more about SPL than many of us have ever learned, Yuli (who's acidic online personality you will love) is also very informative. I think a retailer could have helped you quite a bit in this search, but you no doubt are working on a tight budget and feel that they are a less attractive option. Please be patient, it is worth the effort.
As far as competing goes, the guys at a show should be great sources of info (at least if they know you) and if they are competitive/ secretive at least you can look and see what others are doing.

BTW shipping a pre-fab box will negate any savings over a custom made box or buying a pre-fab from a retailer

I've got nothing against Yuli or most of the guys on here. He for example gives good answers, without the attitude or superiority complex.

Besides, the only reason I don't fit in around here, is because the purpose of my system is to play music. Not just 30 seconds of noise.

I don't want some big ugly box that takes up my whole trunk with a port the size of suitcase. My car is used for more than just a stereo system.

All I asked was for a few manufacturer names, and I got people telling me not to go with a pre-fab. It's obvious that I choose to, so I don't understand why people can't stick to answering the original question, or not post at all.

Either way, I want to drop a pair of Type R's into a Bassworx or similar dual 12 dual chamber ported box tuned to about 38Hz or so. Reason for the tuning is due to the restriction on the size. Any lower and I think the box will end up taking up too much trunk space. Looking for some brand names known for quality and pre-tuned, as opposed to some guy selling a box he made, and knows nothing about it.
