Default Need help with this! Pictures included!

This box is for under the rear passenger seat of my nissan frontier crew cab. I have some measurements and pictures. I have decided to go with a single Sundown E8 subwoofer. I am thinking of a downfiring box for this one. These are not exact measurements but are close.

Here are the pics...

Havnt ran the numbers, but the E8 should work in a relatively small box. As well, the SA8 will.
If you could run the E8 downfiring onto a piece of MDF (perhaps better reflextion that carpet..) and side-fire a small aero into the passenger side there I believe you could get some sizable output from that little 8.

I wasn't sure if I would be able to get the box big enough for a port. It really is a confined space down there. Spy isn't taking any design or build projects on right now so I am hoping there is another builder on here who may be able to help me out. Thanks for the input because I would like to run a port if I can.

i would build that box to go all the way across to get the airspace you need an do like the guy said i would think that 8 an prolly a 2-3in aero port would do the trick. make sure to down fire that sub onto something harder than carpet or forward fire it an flush mount it with a grill cover for the subs sake.

I am betting the e8s are better sealed, but not sure about them. Idk anything about them but they are very small motored.

I would say leave it sealed, its not a lot of space to work with for a ported enclosure.

Remember when you add the port, your reducing your total volume even more.

Can you use spacers to life those seats or do they snap in?

I already got the E8 because of its compact size. I don't think spacers will work on the seats because they fold both ways. I could use the whole seat for the enclosure but it would make things complicated.

I was in the Sundown Section and the manufacturer recommended 0.25-0.3 cubes for a sealed and 0.5-0.6 for a ported.

I do want to fire the sub downward and would like to get a aeroport if I can get a crafty enough design. My main concern is SQ and I really don't want to drop hundreds of $$ on an enclosure. The other problem is finding somebody around where I live with the knowhow to do this right. I was hoping to get some box builders on here to help me out but can't find anybody right now.

Thanks for the info so far!
