honestly ... for what is seems your enclosure knowledge is...to get that box, you should hire a professional. Just being honest because it seems like your box building knowledge isn't that great...and that could be a very complicated box design.

I built a box similar to this. You will need at least 1" thick plexiglass so it wont flex. That usually costs around 50-70 a sheet. The total cost of the box I built was around $120 plus about 5 hours build time.

With the most blatant honesty possible: you don't know enough yet to build that yet. All you see is the pretty aesthetics, but not the work and mathematics behind it. Yes, it does need to be a certain width and height, and depth and volume and literally hundreds of other things to be ported for your specific vehicle and those specific speakers.

theres no way for us to design that for you without having all of your precise measurments.

making a box with plexi isn't that hard. Making a box that looks like what you're trying to do is, especially if you try and wrap with something other than carpet. That's a pro build, I'd say try building something more simple. even a sealed box with plexi is tons easier than that

just building it isn't the only factor. it has to be built specifically for the subs. it has to be integrated into your vehicle. you may be building a box like that literally in the car.

This is something you take to a professional to have done, because even though false walls aren't truly difficult, they look like absolute **** if you **** it up (which is very easy).

That is a smooth looking box, and seems like its not going to be as easy as ppl giving you step by step instructions thru a forum

I would suggest hire some1 that definately knows what they are doing, and you maybe helping and learning along the way, or like thegreatestpenn said, try a less difficult box and work your way up

Once oyu narrow it down to the right sub its going to help you by knowing which way to face sub and port as well as the best way to do it.

Like I stated earlier one person wont be able to be on to give you step by step, but by atleast knowing the equip your going to use will allow opinions from everyone to help you as what will work best

I wish I still had that picture of some of the boxes you've made

Not to say you can't replicate this box, but I'm saying it will be difficult. I have a Chrysler 300C and trust me once you get in the trunk you'll know what I'm talking about. If you try using the entire area shown in that picture it's a mathematical nightmare. Now, if you just choose to fill in the areas with MDF and not box enclosure space it might be easier for you. If I remember correctly the width from side to side is 31" or so, with the height around 14.5" without removing the rear deck speaker cover and approximately 16-18" from the backseat for the depth. If you search Ebay you can find prefabbed enclosures and you can look at the designs to get an idea of where you need to start at. Not to mention how the trunk has a decline coming from the backseat of a 1/2" or so. I'm sure there are hundreds of guys on this forum who could build that box but they would need your 300 or a 300 at their disposal for a bit.

The box you have pictured is nice and I've seen a few variations built. In fact, it appears the person possibly placed their amps in the wheel well beneath the floor. 1" and 3/4" MDF, 1" plexiglass, 2 mirrors cut to fit each chamber bottom, carpeting, screws, woodglue, wood screws, and suede should be on your list......................Goodluck and post pictures when you finish.

Check out those Ebay boxes--maybe the vendors will give you the dimensions/cuts for each piece of the box....You can build the rear of the box with plexi perhaps for a quick fix.
