Okay, I've got a 10w3v2 now for my 93 Nissan Pickup. The sub requires 1.125 ft^3 of box space if ported, then the slot port dimensions are 1.25 in x 10.5 in x 24.875 in (w*h*l). BTW thats for tuning to 33.7 hz. However, the picture of a box on the jl site http://mobile.jlaudio.com/products_subs_enclusure.php?series_id=11 shows the port bending around the back of the box...
Well in my tiny truck thats just not an option. Is it okay to have the port shaped like this picture i just drew up? :confused: (not drawn quite to scale lol) blue is the slot port inside, red is sub inside if you cant figure that out :P

I understand that your drawing is not to scale but will you have enough box volume after the displacement of the sub and port? If so, I would say round the corners and give it a shot. Normally the sub and port shoould be on the same wall, can you do that?

It wont be possible to have the sub and port on same face... sadly.

I haven't done exact box calculations yet (cubic footage wise) But thats exactly what I plan on it looking like just maybe slightly wider, extended on the port side to make the 1.125 cubic feet, since the port takes up quite some space. However, I know I can make the requirement and have my amp mounted back there so thats why I wanted to try this.
