Default Enclosure for 4 12"- Thoughts

I created this enclosure for my 4 12s, goin in the trunk of my altima. Im hoping for thoughts about it, and what can be done to improve it if any.

these are the subs:

5.8 is kinda small for 4 12s imo, unless you're burping. I'm going through the same thing now. I have 4 SA-12s in 5.9net, and I know that it can get louder in a bigger box. It's loud now, but I'm lossing lows from my limited enclosure size

so don't do 4-12's, you don't have the space
I don't get why people try cramming in what they can't fit

I would do 2 in that car, in the proper space. Everybody is gonna say to fire it forward, but I love my lows, so I would never do that for myself

Anyway, they're small subs, didnt think it would be that much of an issue.

Do 4 10"s or something. Port area looks too small for my liking.

I'd do 4 10s or maybe just maybe two 15s. Sundown likes smaller boxes but idk about two in 5.5Cf could ask around. If it was slightly bigger it would work or use aeroports
