i have a 2nd gen lexus gs and a 10w7. im undecided on what box to use. i want something that'll fit just the hump in the trunk, where my spare tire is still accessible.

i have 30"x17"x12" to work with.

here's a couple that i've found.
i believe this a bandpass enclosure

and pre-fabbed bandpasses are really just pieces of **** with fancy lights. If you want it loud, go with ported. If you want it accurate and good sounding, go with sealed. I am personally running a 10w3 and I tried it in a ported, and a sealed box. Sealed is by far the choice I prefer.

i would like for it to sound loud (ported), but i dont want to use up alot of space. i have a ported box for the 10w7 from my scion tc, it sounded nice. i just want to do something different

where can i go for help on how to build a ported box correctly (calculating the dimensions)?
