Let me ask you all this: What would you recommend for a listener to build a box at with the specs for an Infinity Kappa Perfect DVQ 10" (for everyday use, not competition. Specs below) with a variety of music styles, ample trunk space, looking for a good fill without being too boomy? Also, when I use these box building programs, is it a bad thing to look for a flat response around that + or- 3db threshold? You know how sometimes you get that hump at the lowest range of the tuning? What is that, anyway?
Specs for my sub:

If you get an issue with errors in these numbers, I feel your pain. They're exact, though.
1. What freq should I tune the box to?
2. What is the most reasonable box size for it?
3. Do you like pie?
Bracing for the criticism....GO!
