Hey guys I just picked up an RE Audio SX10 (older style) woofer that will be powered by a MB Quart ONX1.1600D @ 2ohms (1100RMS). Im having trouble designing my box, because of the limited space I have. It will be going in a GMC 2500 CrewCab, Im trying to design the enclosure to fit where the front middle seat goes. I took the seat off but the bracing for the seat is still there, so im limited to 14''h x 20''w x 13''d. So this gives me 1.54ft^3 using 3/4'' MDF. Now I could add another 0.4ft^3 to the rear of the box but I do not know how to port / tune the enclosure. I figured the cubic feet of the box with out the port so I know the port will take up some of the enclosure space.

........20''
|--------------| 6''
|--------------|----|
|14''----------|-----|11.5''
|--------------|----|
|--------------|


All of this will be 13'' deep. Will this be enough space and how would I go about porting / tuning it? I mostly listen to dubstep (about 80% of the time).

Sorry for the drawing lol, I know it's not in proportion just wanted to give you guys the idea.

I hear these subs are pretty loud so I want the enclosure to be aimed for SQL (if that is possible given the dimensions).

Haha sorry I tried making it with symbols... Not a good idea. Anyway it's basically a birds eye view of the box. The left portion is 20" x 14" x 13"deep. The smaller right portion is 6" x 11.5" x 13"deep, and is only there if I need the extra air space.
