    Newbie with a few questions

    Hey guys, Im new to this site but i have been an audio enthusiast for a while. I have a few questions u guys might be able to answer.

    I have an audiobahn A2200HCQ amp




    and an Audiobahn immortal sub AWISD12 (12" DVC)

    Features:
    12" 2000 Watts RMS
    Proprietary Tall Excursion foam surround: allows for maximum excursion and maximum cone surface area
    Ultra light 2-layer Carbon Fiber, Kevlar Cone with aluminum dustcap
    Triple Stack Magnet
    Chrome plated 3-dimensional cast Aluminum Basket
    25mm Top Plate for Increased Efficiency
    Dual Voice coil wound on black anodized aluminum former
    PATENT PENDING
    200 oz.
    Frequency Response: 23Hz - 700Hz
    Efficiency: 95dB
    Voice Coil: 3" Dual 2 Ohms
    Mounting Depth: 7 5/8"
    Hole Cutout: 11 1/4""


    What is the best way to wire the sub to the amp?

    My next question is that I have a Mitsubishi Lancer and the trunk space is pretty nice, but the opening to the trunk REALLY *****... it's too small. If i try to make a box that fits snugly inside it probably wont fit in the openings. I also have fold down rear seats but the opening there is pretty small as well. What's the best way to build an enclosure back there? Fiberglass?

    What sounds louder a box made of fiberglass or of MDF?

    If i do go about making a ported box out of MDF, what should I tune the port frequency to to achieve the hardest hitting bass. Here are audiobahn's specs for the sub...

    Ported
    Air Space (Cu. Ft.) 3.7
    Port Size (Inches) (2) 4 x 10.5
    Port Vel. (%) 11.68
    -3dB (Hz) 30
    Tune Freq. (Hz) 35
    Sub Disp. (Cu. Ft.) 0.25
    Port Disp.(Cu. Ft.) 0.144
    Total Vol. (Cu. Ft.) 4

    The box i want to build will have a slot port, not a square port, so that's where I need help. Thanks in advance for all your insights

    Oh, and I KNOW Audiobahn *****... but im a poor college student so please dont hate on me.
