    3/4mdf is perfect. ported/vented= loud. sealed= sound quality. what is it going in and how much room do you have to work with?

    your on the right track with the MDF i would go ported. get me some dimensions and i can easily design something for you.


    also dont pay attention to the sealed sound quality ported loud.... ported can easily sound just as good as sealed. thats just beginners myths.

    i found this site as a helpfull cheat-sheet on some of the calculations. take some measurements from your truck, wherever you want to put the box, and start with a box with 3cu. internal, to make it easy. i'll give you the specs on the slotted vent- 37.5"sq. port opening area (h x w) and 24" deapth. it will subtract .75cu from the internal box volume to make it 2.25'^3..... of course, this could also make for a good extra credit project in math.....
