is this a good price for a custom box?

hey i called a local shop, asking for a box for my JL W6v2. They said they can custom make one and fabricate it for $75. Is that a good price? I'm sure it's gonna look like a normal box but with the right specs.

actually i don't know if it's ported or sealed. i asked them if they had a box, they said they don't have one laying around but they can build me one that match W6 specs. What's the difference between ported & sealed? which one should i get?

A ported box requires more work and has a "vent" and if buildt correctly, a ported box will be pretty loud. a Sealed box is completely sealed and isn't as loud but cleaner.


Odds are it is a Sealed Box
