Default I'm new to this whole thing..

I'm on my first system, and I've become obsessed with Car audio, I already want to upgrade, and make the most out of my system. I have (2) memphis m3 12 inch subs with a db drive 1900 watt speed series amp. Right now I have a prefabricated memphis box with a port on the left side. It's a good box, but I want to get a bigger one because I know that would get good sound out of them. I went to my car audio dealer of choice (Underground Car Stereo) and they said that It will be between 200 and 250 (with my prefab box traded in) for a big ported custom box. Is that worth it? Will the sound be noticeably different? What else would you recommend to get me ready for a competition?

Thanks in advance,

-Edd

wow that does seem to be a lot of money, but most of the times its labor intensive work to make a box.

so dont think of it as just paying for wood and glue. your also getting labor and know how too.

Results are not free. If you get what you want, then is it worth it?

very true.. for that price, what do you think i will be getting? Would it be worth getting 2 more subs, seeing as i'd be having a custom box done anyway..

also, do you think that I will see a big difference in loudness?
