    box "chopping"

    i just bought 2 jl 10" subs that came in a box allready and its far to big for my truck...infact its alot bigger then i think it needs to be. so what im wondering is if i can "chop" it and then put the end back on, makin it smaller.

    heres the dimensions of the box in LxWxH :: 24x12x17.5

    the subs are 7 inches long/high how ever u wanna calculate it.


    now i want to chop the height ( the subs face up) to about 10 inches..is it possible? the box is ported but i guess ill be makin it unported afterwards. so is it possible to do this and still have some nice sound?
