    subs forward, port forward. No wall actually. the box comes to the inside lip of the trunk so its all the way in there and no wall.

    You will run out of x-max before 148dB if you are trying to tune that low with a single 12. 38hz tuning is typically way too low if you're trying to see good numbers with small cone area.

    I think it'll take more than one box to get it there. I'm not sure if a 4th order will get you there either. It also depends on where you meter at. Kick usually yields higher numbers than @ the headrest. But 3.5k and a single 12 is doable. Look at the "spl gains" thread over at smd, best thread ever. Good luck man!

    Too much fail here... Referring to some of these responses

    But to reiterate the good advice, it can probably be done; testing is key. Build a box first to your musical tastes and see where you are. That way you know it'll be satisfying to listen to. Don't slack on electrical/deadening/all that good stuff, too.

    I'm not building a box for my musical tastes with one 12. I want to be able to enjoy music with it that is all. Probably will go with a 40hz tuning. I have a shit ton of cld tiles left to use. I know what to do all I was asking was for people's opinions and higher level help than talking about electrical.
