    box size?

    i'll be at my first comp Sept. 16, Im running a 12-zv3 off an saz1500 in a nice music box currently. I through it on a meter quick and did a 142.63 without any testing or even trying anything. I would like to build a burp box this week and see what I can do. My car was peaking at 34 and 37 in the music box, its a 99 Saturn 2 door. Im thinking of facing the sub in the car with a side firing 6" areo port. Im unsure what size box I should start with? And if it should be rectangle or square or??? Any helps appreciated Thanks

    being that you dont have gobs of power I would say keep it at around 1.8-2 cu ft.

    Just google torres calc? I did talk to Anton and he just kinda said build something and test then go from there which is what I plan on doing. Im just kinda looking for a basic start off point. I guess im not that good at figuring out what the actual measurments are for say 2 cube box?
