I have this one for sale. It fits perfectly in a hatch with all it's pieces left in there. It had no room to shift at all. And targa was able to fit just above it if need be. Fit perfectly behind back seat too

you don't have to make it ported, unless required by your subwoofer.

some are designed for sealed applications (most of them), some for ported, some for free-air, and most have a combination of 2 or 3 applications.

consult your subwoofer spec sheet, it should tell you what type of enclosure, how much air space (cubic feet) is required, and if/how to make it ported, and what size and length of ports.

personally i like sealed enclosures because they use less air space (smaller box) and they dig deeper in the lower frequencies. ported enclosures have a higher output then sealed, but it usually peaks at higher bass frequencies like 60-90Hz plus the box is usually around double the size. But for low bass extension like 20-50Hz you can't beat a sealed enclosure.

I'm considering building one myself out of fiberglass in the wheel well with a wood top. Here's a link I found on how to fiberglass: http://web.njit.edu/%7Ecas1383/proj/main/

I used to sell car audio and sealed subs always sound better in a hatchback. You can also get away with a smaller box with sealed subs.

Good luck with that, and please post pictures when it is done. I went with a single 10" to allow for a fairly simple rectangular box. And alow fitment of my Targa along with four cross overs and both amps in the trunk area.

I don't have the spare either, but I do have AAA now :bigthumb:

Also, I think my single 10 might be able to handle more wattage than your three sonys. :D
