Lookin good! I would clean up the wiring a little bit to get it looking extra sharp. How hard does that pound?

Before you sell it....

What model amp is it? Is it a mono amp, 2 channel, or...?

How do you have the subs wired to the amp?

If you can load the amp properly or is rated to take a 2 ohm or 1 ohm load you might be ok with what you have.

I've never been a fan of the generic sub box, and the wiring definitely needs some attention.

If those are 2 ohm speakers, and you are wiring them parrallel, you will have 1 ohm into each sub. Most likely you're going to have to upgrade your amp and spend a bit more. But oh God will it ever be worth it.

if they are 2 ohm, you could just wire them in series and get 4ohms, so no need for a new amps other than a better one

sounds like a bad ground to me, check it real good and you don't need much money for fiberglass just practice.

Sorry bro but boxes are lame. Do something custom or not as bulky.

its ok, looks like two boxes in one but over all not bad. BULKY for sure, you could go fiberglass and get more airspace and a harder hit with less mass. As for wires just remeber this if it were a show or something....wires are bad, never see wires unless you cant help it and if then make them look super smooth and organized tied down etc
