    The way I tuned my box years ago when I had a JL12w5 was the port length and diameter. I contact JL and they gave me the port size depending on what I wanted it tuned to.

    For 4.75 cu ft. tuned @35Hz

    Use 3 3" diameter ports that are 7.6" long.

    or

    Use 4 3" diameter ports that are 11" long. (more port area = less noise)

    it would be hard to get alot of port area with round ports but.....u could do 4 3" ports 10.85 inches long. i duno if thats enough port area tho, according to John (snova) u need 10-15 in.^3 for each cube..

    Re: tuning a box to 35?

    would that work, by making a little rectangular box, and leave the 2 sides off and cut and glue that into my box? i will want it 1 1/2 high. it doesnt matter how long, cause it goes across the width of my trunk facing the inside.i just need a width and depth...if that idea will work...?
