I need some suggestions on a ported enclosure for this sub. It's going in the trunk of a early 2000ish Honda Civic. We have spce to work with but I'm not that familiar with this sub's likes and dislikes. The website says .75 CUFT @ 45Hz. This sounds very small and tuned way too high to me but I wanted to get some of yous guys opinions.

if i recall they were first made with the idea of being used in sealed boxes?

In the owner's manual they change box size and tuning based on how much power you'll be throwing at it. For 800-1500 watts they recommend 1.75ft^3 tuned to 38hz, giving you a F3 of 32hz. I'd go the same size but tune a little lower, like 33-34hz so that you can hit the lower notes better.

I was kind of thinking the same. It's just a 10 and I want to do as best as possible on lower end so I thought this would help compensate for less cone area. He's going to push it to the max and probably a little futher.

Michael: on their website they suggest ported over sealed for this sub. It's going in a trunk as well so the port allowing it to be louder should help a lot.
