Default 4 Skar MA-8's

Will be using 4 Skar MA8 D2's in my new setup. Having difficulties with the enclosure. Currently I am looking at 48.25" w x 20" h x 13" d (external measurements), with a 3" w x 18.5" x 30" l port. Calculators (Torres and Xplicit) show it to be 5.76cuft gross, 3.84 net (.4cuft displaced by subs) with tuning around 32-33hz. Does this sound acceptable?

I've adjusted the build to be side fire oriented :

While top mount subs work well front mount does as well. If there is room behind the seats to front mount them it helps reduce roof flex and gives you a little storage on top of the box. If you don't care about storage and would rather look at the subs go for top mounted. I'd also add some wood t
dowel bracing top to bottom front to back something like a 1-1/2" diameter.

Isn't the recommended cubic ft .75-1.00?? And what amp are you using? If your going with over rated I'd go smaller cubic ft, under power, (Rated RMS) keep what you got. Otherwise it looks good!! Your on right track. What's your goals? Spl? Burp? Sq?
