Hi, I am building an enclosure for my new 10w7 in my Hilux single cab ute. I have attached some designs I have come up with. Please keep in mind the pictures are more for the design then measurements(they will be tuned to JL's spec) . Because of the limited space I had to design a quite different shaped box. In the picture the sub is represented by the black semicircle. I need help however deciding some final details. Firstly, are there any of the designs that would be better for sound quality? Second would these designs suit a sealed enclosure or a ported one? If ported, where and how would you make the port?I have kept the sub as low down as I can, because as you can imagine you are litteraly right ontop of the sub! Also the overall diameter of the sub is 267mm and my max at the bottom is only 205mm, so Im going to have to tapper or figure some way to widen the box at that point. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appriciated.

Sorry the pics are crap! But you get the rough picture.
