Default 5cu too small for fi btl 18?

Its a first gen 18 BTL triple stack motor. My max dimensions are 23w x 20h x 34d as I want to be able to save 1 seat in the rear of my xB. That's roughly a little over 5 cu after displacements and such. You guys think that's too small for the sub? It'd be sub and port up firing and taking up the reear bench side behind the front passenger. Box location will be like in the pic below.

5 cubes should be fine. Most stronger subs actually like smaller boxes for the most part.

Really? I've always heard big boxes = more air movement or whatever. But, idk lol.

Yea an 8" aero would help you out, if you could get the proper length while still facing the aero up you'd be golden. I have a feeling you won't have very much space facing the side or rear if your building to your max dims and only get 5cft, you'd just choke the port off.

No that would be 1/2 the port area of using a single 8"
