Ok i know i know, not a good vehicle to build any type of system in but its what i have and im stickin with it...i purchased a prefab box for 2 12's off ebay... .75mdf of course not 5/8 and roughly 1.25sqft ea. side. I did this cause im lazy and why not get somethin already the general shape i need. re sealed the inside and now im stuck... was gonna run 12w6v2's but had depth issues so i switched to 12 w3v2's. now my problem is that i really want a ported box i like them more i listen to more rap then anything but lots of everything in all reality i just love bass. this is a daily driver im going to go for max spl while retaining decent /good SQ. I know i have many limits but i have no problem chopping this box up to add space or change it in any way. Its the tipical camaro box from ebay. I have the tools and ability to do whatever need be to fab the box to better specs. I am not sure on the sub/subs ill be going with yet but i have been thinking maybe Diamond D9's, something RE would be awesome and i could afford it but i dont know if it would be worth it due to the limitations i have with the vehicle and inability to make a ported enclosure. Other options are JL w3v3's and any maybe even assassin's i really dont mind as long as its a quality speaker. Obviously i would love to leave the box alone and boom toss it in with some subs and get a great result but i wanted to see if theres anything i can do. I have searched for years looking for new tricks or awesome fbody audio set up's... there is simply nothing there... I dont have much fiberglass experiance but some with my old boats... if need be i could glass it... would rather not but i could... i have many amps right now layin around from old school zapco's to old school US Amps.. i am not concerned with power issues. I will do the big 3+ bat and probably an alt no matter how much power i run... So i guess my question is what type of sub should i look into for this space sealed that i already have? or... what should i do about this space... chop the box and re design? maybe add and a bit of space to it/glass it up... and i just dont know... help please... never had a vehicle so long without a setup and getting tired of rollinwith two stock speakers left in it waiting for my install....thanks in advance...

Theres a f body 3rd gen forum that has the perfect specs for the well box, I used the plans and the box fit perfect, but I forgot the link.
