Default re: question

It all depends on how well the box is made and what application you use it for. You stated that it was cheap, if you have built boxes before, you know what to look for. It is up to you!!

If it's a sealed box (as opposed to a BR) and you go for similarly spec'd drivers, you shouldn't have too many difficulties. It's not an ideal scenario & you'd be better served designing the box from scratch; but needs must! I'm assuming you'll be replacing all the drivers & xover...
