    No problem

    Are you able to squeeze anymore volume out of the space you have available? What kind of power are you going to have going to the woofer? The 4" port is on the small size. If you are running close to rated power you will probably have some port noise. I would opt for a slot port design.

    Re: 10" dcon box specs

    i can go bigger. when i came up with those specs it was based off the dcon(forgot i was getting a gcon lol). i was thinking of bumping it up alittle to maybe closer to the 1.5 cubes ported. i would do a slot port but dont have the ability to do a 45 cut to get the inside corner piece for the port. i couldnt imagine doing a 5" port. the plans are to do sub facing up behind the driver seat and port out the passenger side. the face of the box(where sub is) will be glassed. got a new router so want to try a few things but keep it simple so it goes quick for the build, plus want to try my hand using my compressor to lay some paint down on the box since i have a bigger project coming after this small build.

    feel like i just rambled lol
