The easiest way is to go back to grammar school.

make it out of cardboard.
word.... i usually go down to a bicycle shop and get a box they get bikes shipped it.
they're big enought to cut some panels out and make a dummy box.

This is an identical Civic...


Do something like that with separate boxes. Those are 1.5 net or a little over 2 cubes before displacement each.

Slide them in one at a time and you can get decent airspace. Those could have been slightly larger. I think you can get around 5 cubes gross in that year Civic without building into the trunk.

its possible to use some simple trig to figure it out but im to lazy to write up an equation now so unless someone else wants to your gonna have to use cardboard. Or if your too lazy to make a cardmoard mock up box you could just cut out a side profile of your box and stick it in and see if i passes and get pretty close. Figure out how Tall you want your box, then cut out a strip of cardboard that wide. Then cut that piece shorter and shorter the other way until it fits in the trunk vertically. Take off about an inch for clearance and youve got your max size. Make sure it goes all the way left to right not just in the middle of your trunk.

any suggestions on how many cubic feet and how many hz to tune it to for each sub if i were to build 2 seperate boxes? thanks for the help

As close to 2 cubes net each as possible.

33-35 hertz tuning.

How about learn to use a tape measure too :)

As it was stated above I just make a box outta cardboard first. It doesn't give you an extremely accurate measurment but you can get a good idea of how big the box can be. If you really want to get crazy you can draw out a side view of your trunk on AutoCad or just paper if you don't have that program and try and work it out. Thats what I did on my last box, I cut it so close that I had to take the rubber seal off the bottom of my trunk for my box to fit....:crap:
