    the biggest box you can fit is the biggest box you can fit through the opening of your trunk. ( mustang trunk openings normally aren't very big. ) make a shell of a box that u think is the biggest u can fit out of cheep plywood. and then go from there

    Re: How big a box do i need and does it fit?

    So if i get a box that's l=20 W=18 H=18 and 1/2 inch thick mdf i should be around 3 cubes? (not counting the port) highly doubt that would fit though. I think the 15 might actually be an impossible fit -_-

    Re: How big a box do i need and does it fit?

    (Area in trunk for mounting a subwoofer box: Height = 7" towards front, 12" at rear, Width (front to rear) = 26" maximum, Length (side to side) = 34" maximum between wheel wells (trunk opening is only 28")

    That's what i was able to find for trunk space. The box's top width would have to be 28" and the height 7" (or have some weird type of box that is 12" and then slants down to 7") and a max 26" depth.

    Unless I'm wrong boxes cant have sharp corners right?

    Depending on power and goals most 15" subs will like ~4.5 cubes per sub.

    Re: How big a box do i need and does it fit?

    The idea i might use is basically 2 boxes one 12" in height and the length would be up until the trunk height lowers to 7"inch and there a 2nd box would be attached to the first into the box. The inside of the box would be like the inside of the staircase. (best i could explain without graphpaper and a scanner)

    I'm having a hard time fitting 3.5 cubes i think 4.5 is impossible with a trunk so small.

    Yep, I wouldn't do a 15" sub in that car myself.
