i'll be at my first comp Sept. 16, Im running a 12-zv3 off an saz1500 in a nice music box currently. I through it on a meter quick and did a 142.63 without any testing or even trying anything. I would like to build a burp box this week and see what I can do. My car was peaking at 34 and 37 in the music box, its a 99 Saturn 2 door. Im thinking of facing the sub in the car with a side firing 6" areo port. Im unsure what size box I should start with? And if it should be rectangle or square or??? Any helps appreciated Thanks

being that you dont have gobs of power I would say keep it at around 1.8-2 cu ft.

Just google torres calc? I did talk to Anton and he just kinda said build something and test then go from there which is what I plan on doing. Im just kinda looking for a basic start off point. I guess im not that good at figuring out what the actual measurments are for say 2 cube box?

I hope you can get more then 200 for a kidney...but maybe the black market has been hit with hard economic times too?

I will most likely be playing with an saz-3500 on burps

should do a external port firing forward into the cabin .can do 14" x 14" x 26" 45's in all corners with a large 45 or whammy behind the port

Woofer facing back, port into car?

and not sure what you mean by large 45 or wammy behind port

woofer forward and port forward ,external .the trick is to direct the air flow from the back side of the woofer in to the port .45's are just angles inside the box to do this and a whammy is a larger version of a 45.
