im thinking about re doing my sub enclusure. im hoping to redo my interior and possibly making a different enclusure. im wondering what price range i could ask for. it fits a 12" sub with about 9 inches of mounting depth and is around 1.5 CuFt^3. the speaker pods hold a stangard round 6 inch speaker





the build pics for the enclosure are in this thread

Is it fully enclosed, or is it just a shell?

fully enclosed. you have to pull the seats out to get it in and also remove the seatbelt brackets.

If she's fully enclosed and airtight you should be able to get a decent amount for it. I personally like the concept althougth I would prefer the 12" slim mount sub which would keep close to the same depth as the factory glove box deal. I'd say you could probably get $200 easily, possibly up to $300+/- depending on the interest on the forum. Got a fairly unique piece of work there, did you build it? Let me know if you even decided to make a slimmer one. :P

Overall I think it's a really good piece. I wouldn't think you would have a terrible time selling it. What are you hoping to get out of it?

im still on the fence about selling it or not. i wouldnt sell it for under 300. the materials were the cheap part. ALOT of time went into it.

bastard...lol, i wanted to be the first with Fi in my fiero.... how does it hit loaded with the Q? if it sounds nice, you may have an interested party....

seeing you said you WILL NOT go under $300 seriously killed my interest in buying it lol. might try to make something similar tho. i think its a nice idea and great starting point. i would have it all be more stealth tho. im paranoid of someone stealing my stuff :P

For as good as fi is, I think the price is very reasonable. Would you happen to have, or be able to get, a video of it running in your car?

So would you be selling the speakers with the box, or just the box?

the speakers i could possibly sell with the box. the sub stays with me lol. cant get a video of it. i had two amps from a previous setup in my other car and i used the amp that was on its last legs. i havent had a chance to switch the amps out. Cadence Z700 series. 1500 rms at a 1 ohm load. i used to have them hooked up to my RE SX 18"s. im hoping to finally get off my ass and hook it up again
