    Not bad for being mdf. If you're just looking for beginner grade sub enclosure this works great. If you're looking for bass that will shake your neighbors house then you might want to look for a custom box without terminal cups. The cups can't really handle big boy subs due to the thin wire it has. If you go with this box replace the wire it comes with for a thicker 12 gauge. The terminal cups can use 12 gauge no problem but if you plan to wire 2 subs in different enclosures you will need to use some kind of connectors to fit in the terminal cups. I used a female connector and I put 2 wires on the female side and used the other end to go in the terminal cup hole. It works good like that if using 12 gauge

    Good quality box; terminal wires inside too short

    The boxes I got were as expected except for the terminal leads. couldn't even connect the speakers without having to squeeze hands in between speaker and the box. I purchased two at different times and both had same problem. The manufacturer should make the people assembling them try to put speakers into those boxes with the leads that short. Anyway it was easy fix so no problem, (just replaced with longer and higher gauge wire). Overall cheap solution for those who can't or don't want to build their own cabinet.

    Honestly, the bass that can be achieved with the proper set up and one 12" speaker within this box is satisfying. If your looking to really rock, purchase a 2 speaker set up! The box has 2 - 12" slots that can be placed into your trunk to deliver bass that can be felt within the entire passenger portion of your vehicle. Play music and enjoy! *reason I would not suggest to friend is because I'd suggest exactly what I suggested to you "get the 2 speaker set up"!

    durable and solid, at a reasonable price. added this to one of the kicker amp/sub packages to add some reasonably priced thump in her trunk. sitting at a little over a year and a half, and it's as solid as it was when new. one thought is there's a bit of a glue smell. may want to leave it in the garage for a few days when new to bake the smell out.

    It a standard single 12 inch enclosure. It will provide a sturdy housing for a strong subwoofer and give you a nice and tight clean boom. I think it's over-priced but I used my points to get a decent discount. If you don't mind the price then go for it. I think a cheaper enclosure can be found online.

    Solid enclosure... Installed a Kicker sub into it over the weekend. Was able to power-screw holes into it without any issues. Sub sounds great in it. Note that the enclosure doesn't come with pre-drilled holes or screws so you will have to get some on your own.

    Nice enclosure. I was able to place my amplifier inside the enclosure. Only issue, I would have liked a hole in the back, 2 in. diameter. Centered, 2 inches from the bottom for cable passthrough. I chose not to use the connector block. Instead, I removed it and left it open for ventilation.

    Got mine for a good price at $40 picked up at my local best buy, pretty well put together box and was the perfect size for my 12" Pioneer sub. My only gripe are the wiring terminals are the low end push type, not a big fan. Other than that it works great for what I needed.

    When purchasing a new sub and amp this box is a good starting point to get a good sound right from the box. I prefer the tight response that you get from a sealed box. They sell ported and sealed at best buy it's just a preference.

    Was recommended this enclosure by the Audio guy at Best Buy for something cheap and easy to install. It's turned out to be decent quality for its price range. Only gripe I have is not going with the ported box for more ump

    It does what it is supposed to do. No air leaks.

    These are not all made equally. At the store I had to dig to the bottom of the stack to find one that did not have any defects. It is very sturdy.

    The mdf board is very flimsy. Expect it to flake apart when drilling holes for the sub. Also the wire inside is rather small gauge. And the push terminals are garbage.

    I bought this for a Kicker 12" sub. It had a very nice mating with the box (tight tolerance) so no air leaks. The slant on the back fits perfectly with the slant of my back seats so that's nice. And then finally, the price is good as well.

    Nothing "special" about this particular item as it is used to hold the subwoofer. I do like that it has a wider base because it does not fall over. The other one I looked at was thin and was concerned about stabilization.

    Enclosed box for 12" sub

    This box works perfectly. I wanted one that was a little bit thicker but it sounds really good. I have an Infinity Kappa sub and an Alpine 400W mono amp hooked up to it. Lots of bass in my suv and clearer than an open box.

    Everyone has their own preference as to ho they want the sound to perform. This box was used in Ford Explorer open air cabin. It sounds good, but may sound better in a trunk. It is a little bulky for it's size, but does sound good.

    Not a bad box. Would have liked better internal connections, but for this price it wasn't too bad. Also the groves around the outside edges aren't ideal for putting mounting brackets, if you plan to bolt it to the floor.

    Running an Alpine Type R 12 @ 2ohms with and alpine MRV-500 amp and this box hasn't rattled too much. Overall exterior carpet quality better than most other boxes. I would recomend it for the price!

    The box is great I bought it because I bought a new subwoofer and needed a box. It is great has very deep sound. Only problem is that the wood cracked a little when I put the screws in.
