Port doesn't matter really. I think it's easier and more convenient to do a slot port, plus cuts down on port noise.

If you give me dimensions that you have to work with in your trunk, I can design a box for you, and you could just build it to the specs I gave you...

That gives you 7.289 cubic feet with those dimmensions.

17x39x19 = 12597
12597/1728 = 7.289
1728 cube rooted = 12

39x17x19= 5.887 cu ft after wood displacement

Port-
Tuned to 35 Hz-
17.5" high, 3" wide and 13.55" deep
I got a freaky readout for the peak though, might want to call up RE and run these numbers by them and make sure its all good...

La Costa/Carlsbad

Snova knows his stuff though, so if something seems off to ya you might need to rephrase things or be more descriptive. Look at the basic math stuff I posted so you can get how it works.
