    need advice on a wall for 2 MA Audio 18's

    hey guys, ill first start by saying hi. Im by no means new to car audio but i am new to subwoofer walls. i have ordered a pair of MA Audio MA183XE subwoofers and i am wanting to wall off a 95 civic ex coupe. the amp ill be running is a ssl cr4000.1 @1 ohm mono. the box i am designing is 12 cu-ft internal with 113 sq-in of port (slot) tuned to 38 hrz. would this be ideal for street bass not spl? i could care less about a meter i just want it to be loud to the ear. any input is appreciated.

    That soundstorm amp probably only puts out 1000 watts, and those MA's only take around 600 watts each, so yeah you're probably just fine there.
