So I cant decide what I have enough room for or if I am even up to the task. I got quoted at 145 for a box for the single 12..not sure where that stands at, cost wise.
The MAX dimensions that will fit in my trunk of my BMW 528i are: 31" Width x 18" Depth x 14" Height. It comes out to be 3.64ft^3 after the thickness of the wood but before all other displacements are taken out.
I was wanting to stick with AudioQue Subs. So i was hoping maybe it was a enough room for two SDC2.5 10's, or maybe one HDC312-A Aluminum? What would be my best bet for over all daily driver and best use of the space? I will be using an AQ1200D to power the sub(s) Thanks

run whatever you can on your budget. if your looking to save space go with the tens, go to lowes or home depot with the dimensions, and tell em you need 3/4" mdf cut to that specs. then glue it together and screw it together. wait 24 hours and you got yourself a quality box. go here to build the box yourself.

Well I found a HDC312-A for 220, so I figured I go with that vs the two 10's because I was told I dont have enough room for them.
but thanks for the link
