Need more info like what space requirements do you have to work with.

And I assume since it needs to be small you will be wanting a sealed box.

The dim's you gave are 2.1ft^3. after you port it depending on how low the port your looking at around 1.7. Sealed is really your only option. I mean you could make a ported box but it probably sound like ****.

Audiobahn recommends 1.5cu for most of their 12" so i would say
width x height x depth
15.5 x 15 x 16

or you could use the full 20 x 15 x 16. it wouldn't hurt much, it just should have better low extension.
