Nice :D So basically you're looking to sub front / port front while staying below the window line then I take it right? And @ 36 hz with a 6" L-port (sorry that 1st post is sketchy to read lol) If what I just said is true, then I wouldn't run a full 6" wide x 18.5" = usable height for this size enclosure with front port... It will eat up way too much space away to get you down to 36 hz... I'd do a 5.5"W x 27.5"L x 18.5"H - That will net you around 5.5^ft after woofer displacement and bracing, double baffle, tuned @ 36hz with your above dimensions - If this is what you are in fact after...

What would you rec. Because im not really going for numbers i was just told to go for around 34-38htz

Buck

It depends on how much low end you want or how high you want to extend. They recommend a high tuning but I never thought it sounded that well. Numbers it is good though.

On smd and couple ppl told me to just build my own way lol not alot help im just trying to find best for daily and its only going to be single for a month or 2 then im going to with 2 or 3

Buck

32 is what I would try. I've done a lot of of HDC3's/AB HD's in 33-34 hz (like built the boxes and heard them) and they work well, just a hair lower would be good in my opinion.

I can design you a box for a fee if you want. It will be legit, as long as you have the proper space! Pm me if your interested or have any questions.
