I am a complete idiot when it comes to making speaker boxes. I can do the wiring fine, but am a ******* with box building. And the restraints for my project made it even worse.
I am putting one 8" AQ sub powered by this (http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=17685) amp in a '79 El Camino SS. The stats for the sub are here (http://www.audioque.com/aq/SD2_Series.htm).
I am putting the box behind the seat in the spare tire storage area, and it's a little cramped height-wise.
I am going to be using 3/4 inch MDF. The box can't be more than 9.5 inches high, but it can be up to 23 inches deep and 20 inches wide. Can anyone help out with that? I don't know if you need to know what music I like for this, but mainly rap and some Rage Against The Machine (and stuff like it.) Thanks for your help!

a better amp choice in the same price range would be an Alpine MRP-M500

Alright, here's what I came up with..

This will come to .72 cubes (before sub displacement), 33Hz, with 18.75 sq inches of port area..

And in this sketch up the top isnt on...so there would just be a .75" sheet ontop of it :)
