It's about $25 cheaper after shipping costs and the quality appears to be pretty good. Unfortunately, it doesn't say the airspace but it appears to be pretty high quality.

Well that's good to know. I already have subthump's amp rack and my process of making a fiberglass box is going still cost me about $150 with a lot of labor. Is it really worth it???

I rather just buy the box because you dont have to mess around with the fitting, and also they cut the hole to fit your speaker.

150$ to make one of these boxes?!?!? Are you making it out of gold? lol You can make one for lets say 50$.

Each gallon of the resin is $31. I'm gonna need 3 gallons when it's all said and done... Then I gotta buy a couple packs of fiberglass sheets, the bondo milkshake, already bought the MDF and cut out the hole, and then I gotta buy the carpet. However, there's no possible way to get a larger airspace out of it...

I have a 10" Type S sub. Is it worth it?

that box is disgusting , my buddy has one just like it. might be that one looks just like it, its awful. fitment was very very poor. i bought a ported single 12" box that fits in the ttop holder just right. take up the whole space so theres no gap. its not loud enough though, so i just bought a dual 12" subthump off classifieds here :D

I believe the one posted above has about 0.5cuft of air space. It looks the same design someone was selling on here a few weeks ago. He was making them out of his house and that was the air space he calculated. The subthump one has about 0.6 and the KeeAudio one has about 0.7. I was planning on making my own out of fiberglass as well but now that you said what the costs are, I may have to rethink that.

I would get something a bit more powerful that the S-type IMO, maybe like the R-type.
S-type would work but the R-type might proform better because of the wattage that it can handle.
I have heard a few stealth boxes and some of them had low power 10" subs and i though stock sounded just as good! Never heard the type-R but i bet thats a beast with 500 watts RMS hooked up to it!

Also KEEAUDIO sells stealth boxes.

3 gallons of resin is way too much.
I use 1 layer of fiberglass cloth to make the area smooth and then use 3 layers of fiberglass chopped mat and use about right at or a little over a quart of resin. I roll it on with a small paint roller to keep as many airpockets out of it as I can. This also helps to distribute the resin evenly. I then coat the inside with truckbed coating which helps with the sound deadening and sealing.

beat me to saying that one. There is no way you should even use a gallon, much less 3 of resin. i would say you should be able to get it done with a half gallon---thats taking account for you not being perfect with using it and having some wasted resin.

I like by subthump pair. Plus the sound is killer!

Plus, with the hatch cover on, it's like an enclosure.
