Default Center Console Sub box for SA8 V2

So I have a 2005 Escalade and I am looking to add some low end with out loosing the little cargo space I have behind the third row. I have an SA8 V2 that I was going to put in my car but my funds are low and I was wondering if anybody had an idea of how to build a ported box for it then I can then turn in to a center console in between my middle row captain chairs.

I would like to thank everybody ahead of time. I am new to box building but I have a guy that does great boxes as long as you give him the measurements since he doesnt calculate air space or anything like that.

Here's where I found those pics in case it doesnt show up Stealthy sub enclosures (stock spots + consoles) - Page 2 - Chevy Tahoe Forum | GMC Yukon Forum | Tahoe Z71 | Cadillac Escalade - Tahoe Yukon Forum

What a way to ruin a high end SUV...hate to see your car payments. That said, since the sub is pretty tall, got one myself, not sure if you would have to remake that center console or not. Doesn't calculate airspace??lol that's a big mistake right there...anybody can be a box builder but it's the inside that counts, and everybody knows this. Airspace is key to a good performing enclosure.

I'm not sure how it would be ruining a "high end SUV" its the same thing as a Tahoe/Yukon/etc. I bought the truck cash so I don't have car payments. And the reason I am asking for help is to get help with dimensions and airspace, the guy that is going to build my box makes displays for conventions and has all the tools needed to make boxes out of mdf/fiberglass etc but I need to get him dimensions first. So you did a lot of shit talking but didn't help at all, what was the purpose for your post?

I had a Jl audio stealthbox for my 2004 yukon and loved it, tight clean bass. You loose zero storage space, the back of those cars are tiny. I pulled the drivers side rear panel and mounted the amp there. Loved peoples reactions to thinking my system was "stock"
