I like port to the side for an application like that.

At the very least 2 6in aeros. Tuning is dependent on personal preference

so 2 6 in aeros wont have port noise?

It could, thats about the lowest you could get away with for 8 cubes. 3 would be more ideal, or even 2 8in aeros if you can fit them. Might be hard tho. I didnt consider that your box was 8cubes

If you are doing SUB UP.....you will prob get a better response with port out the side.....

i just had a design done with a 15" up and port to the back of the car. hopefully i like it because cant afford to keep dropping dollars to get a box designed / materials etc. lol
