Do all sides of a box need to be flat? if in the rear of the box, can it raise in certain places?

If you need pics to understand what im talking about, i can draw something up.

Extremely convoluted enclosures can cause a response other than predicted, but from what you describe it doesn't appear like yours will cause significant undesirable effects.

What????that means twisted or contorted.

Sounds good though.

Angles can cause unwanted harmonics or cancelations.They can also cause standing waves which can play hell on speakers.
The best way is to try it and find out.

PS: to about the top of the wheel wells

if i were to try and do it, i would round all the angles in the box, if that'll help?

I think it will be fine.

Instead of going over it why not make a false floor and raise it all just above the height of the tube?
As for the wheel wells that shouldn't be too bad.Do you plan on running the box straight across or do you want to tuck it between the space in the wells?

i was wanting to tuck in in between the wells...

The tube is actually a heater and gets hot so it needs ventilation

id remove it because building around that is gonna ****.

I had a very similar situation in my enclosure and made it a 45 degree incline with no ill effects...it'd be just fine imo as long as it's built properly and finished properly
