if your using the system for daily driver, you should be able to get by with a pre-fab.

well, my car is a daily driver, and it's full on custom.

building a box to the driver specs that fits your vehicle is cheaper than a prefab with 10x better performance (if properly executed).

do you have tools (jig saw, circular saw, table saw, drills, etc.) that allow for straight and round cuts of 3/4" MDF? any woodworking experience? if so, making a rectangular box is pretty easy. Parts Express sells carpet, speaker terminals, etc. to make any DIY box look like the pro's.

prefab boxes can be purchased and are plug and play. they are usually not optimized for your exact sub, and as such performance will suffer. additionally, they are not integrated into the vehicle, and easier to remove (steal) so they are not ideal in that respect either.

pics of your vehicle and where you want them to go?

I have all the tools as far as just cutting wood goes..the only one I'm not sure about is one to cut the circular holes but anything I don't have my grandpa does. He's got everything for working with wood

as far as experience goes, The only things I have really built are 3 quarter pipes for riding bikes on

I've always wanted to build an intricate box like you see on tv, that will come at a later date though

how do I put pictures on here?

What kind of volume do i need for a box for 2 12 inch memphis power reference subs?
i will figure out the dimensions that will get me that amount and best fit my car.

also how do i port it and where in the box do i port it?

Memphis Makes A ported box for those exact subs. It is stitched with the Memphis logo on top as well. I wanted to buy one but the guy at the place said I would most likey have problems since my subs are so big. He said my old PR's would sound crazy nice in it though.
