Typically i prefer cutting out the rear deck of a car and mounting the subwoofers in the rear deck so the bass is reflected off the back glass and all the sound is kept in the cabin for sound quality purposes, i really dislike having the subs fire into the trunk, i really dont want to if i dont have to, so im trying to come up with a good box design for my 2004 infiniti G35 sedan but the largest i can cut on the rear deck is approx 31.25" wide by 6.25" front to back without doing any structural damage.
my old car i was able to mount two american bass VFL 12's in the rear deck, however that doesnt seem possible with the new car so i came up with this design that im curious about the subs im using are infinity kappa Perfect 10.1 subs, i can run them in .6 CF sealed, or i can slot port the box and run them approx. 1.5 CF per sub slot ported, i dont mind running the subs either way, sealed is easier, but slot ported will produce a "fuller" sound However im not sure if this box design will even work, i dont want it to sound like a band pass box, but i think with a port approx 30" by 5" (after factoring in wood dimensions) anyway here is box design #1 , please let me know if this even looks like it would sound fine.
here is design #2 , my only concern is the subs reflecting off the wooden wall would produce poor sound waves, please let me know if this will work.
and i realize that design #2 will not permit a ported enclosure, but design #1 will probably not be ported either.
please give me some suggestions as to how i can do this, keep in mind that the LARGEST opening i can make is 30" x 5" in the rear deck after factoring in the dimensions of the MDF
