I have always done ported in the past but the local audio store has been trying to tell me that sealed is better when it's in the trunk.. I was dreaming up ways of porting through the rear deck but I know nothing about how subs perform in trunks except that I will probably be investing in a lot of dynamat.
    39 x 17 x 22 is only 6.9(ish) ft3

    I would say do 2 12s ported. You will be much happier with the performance.

    2 SA 12s $390
    AQ 1200D $250

    Use the rest to buy wires and build an enclosure.

    Not ported I don't think. That sub has a good 3.5 displacement. You still to take out the displacement for bracing and port.

    Re: Help me shake this Volvo

    Yea you guys are right it's ~6.5ft3, that's what I get for trying to do math while pre-gaming for the bar. Now I'm thinking one dc lvl4 18 ported front firing behind the pass side back seat because I can fold that side of the seat down when I wanna really turn it up and the rest of the time just leave the ski port open to the trunk.

    Would 2 12's on the same 1000rms be louder or or tighter, what would the advantages of the 2 be.

    well one 18 has more cone area then 2 12s but the 12s will be tighter obviously but it wont be a significant difference. i would go with the 18 imo...but it all depends on the space you have...that much space is really tight for that dc

    I wouldn't do the 18. You do not have the room. Properly build/tuned 12s will out perform an 18 in a half correct enclosure.

    Heres the deal man, you need to learn how a why a subwoofer driver works before you go and spread all sorts of bullshit around. 12's will not be "tighter" than a 18.

    I agree with rabbit, i wouldnt do a 18 in that space...
