Default RE 18 MT enclosure advice

I just picked up a 18' RE MT. Its going to replace my two 15's XXX. What should i tune the box too? Looking sql I know these subs are spl subs. How big or small should i make the box? Sub is going to be power by a RD 3250.1. Any advice?

i like MT 18s in 5.5 plus port. about 12inches per cube.. tuned around 36hz ... have had great luck with this set up. after trying larger lower tuned set ups with not near as good results.

So it looks like 5.5-6 is the answer tuned 35hz. Anyone else?
