Overall I've been very happy with this box. It seems pretty responsive and seems to be sealed properly. Though I'd still highly recommend it, I have had two minor issues with it:
1. The first day I had it hooked up my bass kept cutting out. Took a look and the back side of the terminal (on the inside of the box) were loose, creating a poor connection. Simply tightened it up with a screwdriver and haven't had issues since.
2. I just noticed that the carpeting is starting to pull away in 2 spots. Granted, it's pulling away where I usually grab the box to move it, which I do fairly often.

Overall though, I'd recommend the box if you're needing a sealed, compact box for a 12" sub.

Filled box with fiber and mounted Infinity Kappa 12". Compliments the music perfectly with 500W mono amp. Plenty of boom if you want it.
I sealed inside seams whether it needed it or not. Would have been tough to fabricate myself for the price. Good value

I have an alpine type R in this box and it sounds great. No issues with splitting or separating even with a 1300 watt infinity amp pushing the type R. Very great value. I would have more in just supplies if I were to make this myself. I would highly recommend this product.

This is a well built box. Very sturdy. Accidentally dropped a few times and it didn't even phase it. I used it with a 12" Alpine Type R and it did ok for being sealed. Of course after I went to a ported box, I got a lot more output out of the sub.

I really liked the box. Bass was really tight and precise. Pros: tight bass and hit real hard sounds good in SUV also it was a little small for me but if you are tight on space as i was, this box is the one for you. Cons: Little small. It will slide around a little, so take my advice and mount the box down or you could velcrow it to the carpet other than that it rocks

I would recommend this product to any of my friends for the simple fact that it was inexpensive. They usually say, you get what you paid for, but in this case you get more than what's expected. I've been running 1 Alpine Type R 12" in this enclosure and could not be happier. The box is on the smaller size but is perfect for allowing my subwoofer to maintain that tight and accurate bass. I am for sure going through Sonic Electronics for future subwoofer enclosures!

I bought two of these to house my Infinity Kappa Perfect 12d VQ subs. They fit great and looked good. One of the boxes has a slight leak of air when in use from the top where they "glued" the corner...this I will fix later with a sealer from the inside. Other than that...worked great!

The box is perfect for the simple enclosed box setup. The volume is small, so I just added some polyfill and now the box makes the sub's bass sound clean, with a good solid punch. So having polyfil will help with subs that need the cubic vol, if getting this box.

This was a really great box, it was well built and was airtight. Carpeting was very nice. I used this for an Alpine Type R 12" was all I could have asked for. I have now upgraded to a ported box, and of course it's a lot louder than this but hey, it's ported. I would totally reccomend this box to a friend.

When I purchased a 12" Alpine Type R sub, I looked up the recommended size to mount it into. I decided to go sealed for sound quality (tighter and punchier bass) over ported for loudness, and went with this box from SonicElectronix because of its low price. The box looks great, feels solid, and best of all, my Type R POUNDS in this thing! I am very pleased with my purchase.

This box was the cheapest one shipped on SonicElectronix.Com so I figured I'd get what I paid for with it. But the box is put together very well and houses a 1000 watt sub without much air loss at all. I would get this box if you need something cheap and functional.

I love this box! I have owned and tried several variations of single 12" enclosures and for my needs this was the most versatile. Being as I am an adult with a family and a life I cannot completely dedicate space for the 'system'.I can throw this in the back seat or in the rear hatch.If I'm bringing home the bacon, eggs, milk, etc from the store I can always move the enclosure if needs be and don't have to strain or unbolt anything. The sound is tight and punchy. Its small and movable. The carpet is good quality and the construction is top notch! The binding posts leave a bit to be desired for me, but you can upgrade them easily yourself if you so choose

I love this box. Bass sounds loud, clean, and punchy. The hook ups were high quality, as were the seals. Just be sure you get a grill if your sub doesn't come with one. I didn't, and taking the whole thing apart just seems like a pain. Also, get baffling if you want it.

I have a DUB MAG 1200 Sitting in this box and all I can say is that this box hits HARD!!. Now first off for those of you who don't know, you are actually going to get the best base response with a sealed box and I would definitely recommend this one. It is also not too big and is good for about 1.5 cubic feet of volume. Also I have a 3000GT which is notorious for it's shallow trunk and small amount of trunk space and this box fit easily with room to spare!!! So this is definitely the box for you if you are looking to save space and/or want to have excellent sound.
