ok so i have a new mtx 9500 and i am going to be building a box for it starting in a few moments. i just went outside and took a few measurements and heres what i came up with.
i know i know its a crude drawing on ms paint
so im getting a 1" mdf ring made for the speaker and the dark grey are will be fiberglassed. the sides and top of the box will be made out of 3/4 mdf and the bottom of the box will be fiberglassed as it will easily flow with the contours of the bottom of my truck and will allow me more air space. then after i construct the box i will figure out how many ^3ft of air space i have after displacement of the driver and i will make a port to tune the box to 35hz. the recommended size for a box for this woofer from mtx is 1.75^3ft oh and i will also be raising my back seat 3" this is the most i can lift it so that someone my height (6'2") can sit in the back without hitting their head on the roof.
anyways im off to home depot with my drawings to get some wood cut!
