I measured my trunk recently, and I have around 9.75 cubic feet of space within these dimensions: 50w x 28h x 12d. I was wondering whether to go with a 4 cubic foot box, or the recommended 2.1 cubic foot box. I would port both of these to 28 hertz, if its possible with the 4 cubic foot box. I've heard that I would lose some higher bass frequencies with the bigger box, such as those from a bass drum, but I was discussing this with a friend who has only built sealed boxes, and i didn't make it clear that the 4 cubic foot box would be ported.

4 cu/ft @ 28Hz will give a nice gain at about 30Hz. That would be about the biggest you want to go with a single 12".

it's from 71/2 up to 9" i think, from 10 - 18".

It's on the website under Tech if i remember.
