Personally, I write on each enclosure I test with in a single car so I can know exactly what everything did.

    My notes normally contain...

    Year/Make/Model
    What sub
    How much power(actual clamp)
    SPL
    How it sounded
    Any notes I felt needed to be wrote for a later date..like box position or loading issues...or what ever.
    I get it but it's not simple or quick. You know how many boxes ive been through. I found out a few things along the way. Peak is always in the mid high 40s no matter where I tune after the deadener. Subs like to be up and toward the rear, port likes to be center. That's all I got right now

    Have you tested with different sized enclosures? Smaller, larger?

    port area alterations... internal or external ports..

    subs/port up with it sealed off around the box(basic beauty panel just more rigid)....

    Some times the stupidest things make the biggest differences.

    At what frequency is it bottoming out? Odds are that is user error.

    I know what everybody is saying. Thats why I decided to copy a proven design. I had to go a bit wider to give the motors clearance but the specs are almost identical. We also are doing it flush mount

    I wouldnt mind helping but I doubt I can be much help. Ive only built two enclosures my whole life, and that was the second one I built. Im a complete novice when it comes to box building. lol

    Well, if I remember correctly, my enclosure was 36.5 x 17.5 x 22 and around 5.8-5.9 cu ft net and tuned to around 32-33 hz. Had a 10" diameter port that was 26.5 inches long. Almost the whole back end of my trunk was foamed up. lol

    But that worked well for my subs, cant say the same for dc lvl 3's.
