Default Enclosure Input for AB XD 8

I was hoping some of you may have had experience with building an enclosure for an American Bass XD 8.
This will be just a single 8 for my work car, I was hoping to do ported or try it in a 4th.
Anyone have any input? They modeled kinda strange, maybe I goofed somewhere.
So, if this was your single 8, what would you put it in?

Ok, more activity on here now.
~.8 cubes & tuned to 35-40Hz?
as far as the bandpass, I'm not sure.
If anyone has experience I'd love you input.
BTW the wierd modeling may be a result of the sub being stiff, i.e. never been powered.

If a mod could move this thread too it would be nice, I posted in the wrong section.

It's looking pretty good in 0.8 tuned to 35. 4th is going to have to be comparatively much larger and still might be a little peaky at resonance depending on your cabin gain. White lines are 0.8 at 35, red line is a 4th with 1ft^3 rear (50hz resonance), 1.5ft^3 front at 50hz. Playing with volume and ratio doesn't get any better results than a vented as far as flattening out the peak a bit, and over-excursion is going to be an issue.

edit: I played around with 6th orders as well but couldn't get more than a couple dB gain in the lower bandwidth, and again the enclosure needs to be pretty big.

Thx SPL, confirms my thoughts, .8 @ 35Hz will be the enclosure.

I went with [email protected] net, 10.5x1.5 port when I built my box for a single


Now it's sitting there waiting on me to cover it. Might sell it, or keep it around to use on road trips.
