Default Made Enclosure in Sketchup, Give me Opinions!

So I have been asking and asking about console boxes for my F250. I finally went in sketchup and this is what I came up with. I have 2 or 3 more designs but I think this one is the closest to what I want. It is still a little bit big for My Sundown Z v.2, but I am only running it on a sax1200d. Do yall think I should add some things to the inside to get volume down, just leave it as is, or do a whole other design?
I hand calculated the volume and got 2.38 ft^3 after sub displacement and port displacement.
The port is 10inches wide by 2.5inches tall by 28inches long which puts this tuned right at 30 hertz I think.

If you are overpowering the sub, it's usually not a good idea to make the box too large else you may run jnto the subs mechanical limits. You can reduce volume by adding 45s or by adding some known shape (braces, etc) to the inside.

If I were you, I would calculate the actual box area of the sides, then divide that by your optimal airspace in cubic inches to give your exact width of an optimally sized box with that same cross section.

I am OCD too, so I understand. The only reason I have the offset port is because my truck is wide between the seats and my 4wd is in the floor, so I have to do the whole console offset to the right because the shifter is on the left.
