Are you asking about the cost of the sub  enclosure?  To make or to buy?  To make it's probably no more than $50 by the time you buy the MDF, connectors, screws to hold the box together, glue, and carpet...  To buy...  That all depends on where you go but I think they can get up to $150....

I'm not sure this is what you are asking though....

You would need to provide the mounting depth of the sub along with the airspace requirements for a custom enclosure to be built for you ;)

How much would something like this generally cost?

Depends on the actual car and enclosure needed.  Usually $500 on up.

My cost to do my enclosure in my Jeep was about $100 for everything.  Resin isn't cheap these days!!!

Here's some links to pics with painted and glass'd enclosure which I love to do.  Obviously more money.  Mine was built just for road noise and not for show especially since it's usually loaded down with tools.

Here is what I did last weekend.  I'll finish it up and post the final pics in a few days.  I will also put up the dimensions for each piece and what the volume size is.  For the face board I took a large sheet of paper and taped it in.  Then I traced around the edges to get a custom fit.  This is part 1 and 2.

Are you going to add a port?...I like this design....still leaves plenty of room in the trunk. Keep up the good work....can't wait to see the finished product!

I used the sealed one without a port.

Defend- That looks great!  I would definetyle be interested in volumes and sizes...  It looks like that just fits into the side and comes out to where the trunk drops down- that accurate?

I build mine to fit back under the rear shelf in the driver side and it lloks decent there but after all my measuring, I can't get my fisher t tops to lay down in there now....hmmmm.  When I was designing it and putting it together I kept checking to see that the T's would lay down.  I have all the wire run from the fron tto the back and now I just need to hook up the amp and I'll be done with this project!!!!

And the final product.  I thought I has a picture of how it fits into the trunk but I can't find it.  I will post that when I'm done.  I hooked this up in my tahoe to satisfy my curiosity in how well it will work- pretty good!  Can't wait to see how it works in the TA....

Same issue here ski, wanted to be able to put the chair, cooler, and tops in the trunk while still kickin out good sounding "Miley Cyrus"  LMAO.  I should have it covered in the next day or so, and will post up how it all looks with a few inside shots of the trunk so you can see the box, amp, and wiring.  Yes, I bet I mispelled her name, my daughter will point that out I'm sure.
