    I would recommend no smaller than 2.0ft^3 and tuned around 32hz.

    I mean how small as in the dimensions of the box? I'd like to keep it tuned low to about 30 as well.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. But you're going to need to use up most if not all of that space.

    Give Mike465 a shout. It looks like he does box designs and may be able to work with you in more depth.

    I'm short on free time while at work

    25inch^2 is plenty of port surface area for that driver in a 2.4ft^3 box

    Re: Need Enclosure Design for 12" Fi Q

    Mike465, I did get your PM. I'm going to mock up the enclosure in my trunk to see if I'll have enough room for the baby stroller, etc back there. If it's too big, I'll just have you build me a 1.5 cube sealed box. Great design and price by the way! PM me a price for sealed if I have to go that route. Thanks.
