    Single cab ranger box, slot port help!

    Hey, i am in the process of making plans for a new box for my 12" alpine type-r to fit in my reg cab 97 ranger. I have all the measurements and everything, my only problem is what i should do about the port. The new box should have about 2.7cuft. I would like to slot port it to like 34 or 30hz, maybe lower or higher. Never had a slot ported box before. My goal is more for spl, but im just a daily bumper tryin to have a louder system then my buddies. And of course to have music at the parties My main question is, how would i go about slot porting a wedge style truck box?

    W-48"
    H-13.5"
    Bottom Depth-11.5"
    Top Depth-8.5"
    This is still the design stage, so changes can still be made..

    ****, those 2 8s looked like they hit pretty hard. I ended up just doing 12"x1.25"x24" port on my box, sub/slot facing forward which is about 30Hz from what i can figure out. But the slot isnt being blocked at all. Sounds pretty good. Only getting roughly 350wrms. Definately louder and a better sounding bass then the single 2.5" round port.
