anyone ever build with this brand sub? they seem to be pretty cheap and was wondering if they was any good?

I think there are plenty of other options that would yield better results for around $109. If you're looking to get a good amount of bass for HT and are wanting to stick with a 15 the Exodus Audio DPL-15 would be a good choice for about $30 more. I think you'd have SUBSTANTIALLY better results with that driver over the MA driver.

Link for reference... http://www.diycable.com/main/product_info.php?cPath=24_93_150&products_id=684

Edit: This is assuming that you have IB as an option. That would save you some construction/enclosure costs in most cases.

been playn with bb6p came up with these #s
40x20x15.5"
fb 18.33
f3 25.38

vent is 2x10x30
i can put this togethere with bash 300 for about 200ish so the question is.. how much better this would be than my old dahlquist cienima series 12" supposedly 400watt, but i bought it back in the day when they didnt even list RMS so im not sure what exactly it is prolly around 100rms just a geuss though. i recently bottomed it out i think is the right word, was watching mission impossible 3 and it made a loud clink so it no longer keep up with my newer speakers ive recently been buyn so thats why im tryn to upgrade :)
