    1.8cf. tuned to 35hz (PER) is the smallest I'd go.

    then you don't want sealed.
    USUALLY with boxes: sealed=more for SQ, ported=more for SPL

    no killin' necessary. Look in the sticky up there and see if there's already a box size for whatcha want.

    yep.
    It is 2.9cf tuned to 33. Memphis says 3cf tuned to 43hz MIN for two subs.
    That link was found by looking at the PDF I found on Memphis' site, then going to the box plans sticky and looking for a plan that matched the cubic feet requirement. then I clicked on the thumbnail moe provided and waaalaah.
    I was hoping you'd do it yourself.

    Re: building box

    if you're that inexperienced have someone build you a box because a box will make the difference between sounding like **** and bumping and if you want loud get mclass subs

    From your first suggestion then, go ahead and build a sealed enclosure and see if you like it. The volume may be good for now...the SQ will be better anyway. Down the road, and after you've built a box, you can start on another enclosure while you have the sealed in your car.
