yes, my current setup is 4 cu ft inside the box, top of box (the face where the subs sit) is double layered 3/4" MDF and my port size id 8"x 5"x 19" Deep.

in my previous vehicle, this setup was able to achieve 142 DB at 46Hz.

I need double layer 3/4" on the face to support the weight of the baskets and magnets. if not, the box flexes.

does anyone think itll be possible to achieve a tank of a box, like my old one, and still have 4 cu ft interior dimensions and a similar port? (the box needed 3 people to load it into my 1997 jeep cherokee)

no way in hell you'll manage a 4cuft box in a neon's trunk. run 2 subs and build a spec box for those.

working on calculations for new box and getting ready for a trip to home depot for my MDF.

4 CU FT should be easy but not leaving me much trunk space.

currently the 12" Kicker in my trunk does well but doesnt make my amp work hard, it barely breaks a sweat

I was gonna have a 4cu ft box made for 4 10's but decided not to gain that much weight and it would not fit if it was a ported box (more room needed for ports)

Instead I bunmp my 2 12's with a 1200W amp. its plenty loud.
