Default wall or no wall, scion xb, Obsidian audio 18's

Car is 2012 scion xb, I got my subs in saturday, super fast shipping from obsidian. I got the car interior stripped today, going to build the floor starting tomorrow. I have more than enough room either way, and I had to lose the back seat either way. I was gonna do subs up, port back which was the loudest in my expedition but this is alot smaller car. If I do a wall, I have to do subs side by side with port across the top of box. The car is my daily driver, I drive at least 30-45 miles 1 way every day, this is reason I am considering subs up, port back or even subs and port up. I have driven a walled vehicle before for couple years, I just cant decide if I want that now. Any suggestions? Anybody done any work in scion xb. Subs will be in 5.5-5.75 cubes each tuned to 29hz

I'm actually in the process of working my way up to walling my 08 xb. I'm waiting on my b2 xc's to show up. Right now I have a custom box for 2 15s behind the rear seats. I plan on getting 2 more xcs and walling. But that will be toward the end of the year.
