Installation Description


Me and a friend thought that it would be awesome to get a 12" and two 10" subs. I wanted to stick with Alpine because I am a very strong believer in their equipment. I bought two sheets of 3/4 inch MDF at Home Depot. My friend and I spent two days making the box, but it paid off.
