Is your goal SPL or Everyday Music?: Everyday.
Tuning Freq (Hz): looking for around 36-38hz

I have been researching for couple days already and most of the free design ive found is way too big for my car and ive had a look though the free plan thread but most of them are just too wide to be practical.
Im looking to build something simple like this, i dont do any compettition and i never will its just for my self listening to music in the car while sitting in annoying traffic.

If anyone know of any thread or any free plan around that size slotted box please leave a link so i can finally get started on the box.

Thank you in advance!

with your space restrictions I would run aero ports that way you can get the correct airflow and box volume. RE calculator is not accurate at all
