    4.16 cuft provided those are internal dimensions. As for tuning I don't really know. I'm not too familiar with your sub.

    32 hz would be daily driving . it's usually a good starting point. My hx2's are tuned to 32hz for daily driving. Don't compete anymore I'm too old

    Just so you know

    L X W X H (use internal numbers to account for wood thickness)

    Then you divide that by 1728 (which is 1 cubic foot)

    And you get the Vol of the box in cubic feet
