Peaking @ 30 huh?

Have you tried a sweep in it?

Even though your box peak might be at 32 Hz, your subs might have a really low resonant frequency like 20-25 or something, so they actually lower the peak frequency. And in such a small car, I don't think the cabin would affect it too largely should it?
