Default could use some help

i'm trying to design a new box for my system. i built one already, but there were many problems with it.

my max dimensions are

height1=32"
height2=24"
width=36"
depth=24"

this is pretty much walled, for 4 12" AB xfl's ran off 2 saz3000d's. i also have a powerbass 4 channel amp, and 2 D3100's. i need all of this stored in the "trunk" area of my 01 2 door blazer, while keeping my back seats.

i would like it to be tuned to roughly 32hz and keep it close to 1.5-2 cubic feet per sub. i'm having a rough time figuring out how to fit it all in there. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Is the difference between height one and two top to bottom on a wall or slope from seats to tailgate?

So you want a box design for free? Then people to tell you where to put everything?

What do you mean "pretty much walled"?

What's up with height 1 and 2?

the sub-forum "Enclosure Discussion & Design Construction Help"

is to help with your specific design, not nescarily start from scratch with max dimension's,

ive gotten flamed before for making this statement ^ but im sticking to my guns on this one.

you can a decent design for around $25-$50

well i've got my own design already, but i dont know how to do all the fancy computer work to show it on here.

the difference between the heights is from top to bottom, height1 is the front of the box, height 2 is the rear of the box.

i want it to be walled but i want to be able to build it outside of the car, and be removable. i was planning on just putting up a beauty panel that covered up any small gaps that may be left.

who do i talk to about getting a design then?

You need to show why you have those heights. You need to figure out where you're putting your gear at.

Ram designs does some pretty sick designs.

What is your own design? You don't need a 3d image, just a cut sheet.

Maybe make a rough sketch of your design and we can help you prefect it.

i need two different heights so that the back window/hatch can still close, but it'll angle up towards the roof...not sure how to better explain that..

i've got the box designed with the area for the batteries and amps to be mounted in. i've got a total of 9.1996 cubic feet after the displacement of that cut out, but before sub/bracing displacement.

is there a way to find out what size port i should be using for this then?

i also figured id give an explanation of why i'm building a new set up. the last one i built was too big by about a half inch on both sides in order for me to keep my back seats. this was due to me not taking the rounded edges of the roof into account. it also was not strong enough, i blew out two seals the first day. i screwed the walls every 3 inches, wood glued, and siliconed every side. but apparently that wasnt enough. my port also shattered because it was 34.5" long with no bracing in it. i've since learned that i need to lol

so pretty much, the first box was just a complete disaster but i learned quite a bit from it. now this time around i would like to get things more exact and have it be perfect.
