    New to box building, need help with Dimensions

    Well this has been my first venture into the car audio scene. I purchased 2 10" polk Audio GNX-104 subwoofers that were on sale at fry's a few weeks ago, but haven't been able to find box dimensions that fit my limited space. I found some dimensions for the subs at polk's website but they were only for single sub enclosures. I'd really like to have a dual sub, ported enclosure to put inside my trunk, the only problem there is the limited height. I drive a Honda Del sol which is a targa top, for the targa to fit in the trunk with the box, the box will have to be less than 12" in height (11" box height) to clear the targa holder. I e-mailed polk but haven't recieved a reply after i sent them my trunk dimensions. So maybe you guys can help me, i've been driving for a few weeks now subless :blow_up: with the 2 10's sitting in my room. Any help is appreciated.

    My trunk dimensions are as follows:

    11"- Height (11" is max due to the targa top holder)
    3'-wide
    2'6"-deep

    Picture of Trunk:

    Notice the targa top and targa holder
    (Taken from car domain, not my trunk but same exact thing none the less.)

    I'd like the box to be a slot ported enclosure if at all possible and still be able to have atleast half of my trunk space (rear facing subs), hopefully my trunk dimensions will help you guys figure somthin out for me. I've had a few friends of mine helped here with their boxes, hope you guys can do the same for me. Thanks again, and i'd appreciate any help possible.

    I think that if you are having difficulty figuring this one out I would talk with Loneranger. He builds for gnomeaudio.com. With space being an issue, he will know how to build the right box and still get it to fit.
