Question 1st tme building enclosure/need help

1st time trying to build an enclosure for my subs, i would usually just buy prefabs. I'm just a beginner so if there's any info you need let me know.
So this is what Im going to be experimenting with.

(2) audiobahn dub1000 these are the one i have but not much specs on them . Audiobahn DUB1000 (dub1000n) 10" DUB Series, New Version

These are the older model, they're almost the same only difference is these older ones weight more. On this page it has more info like fs,qts, ext
Audiobahn DUB1000-OLD 10" Subwoofer - Sonic Electronix

Box Design: I want to make the woofers fire upward and the port facing forward (facing the rear window/door) similar to Johnathan prices box on the Tahoe just on a smaller scale lol. I was thinking of tuning the port to 35 hertz, but i not sure give me some ideas

Vehicle: 99 Ford explorer xlt 4 doors
cargo area i have available: width: 3 feet 6 inches, length 2 feet(have more if needed), height 1 feet 6 inches

so what im looking for is how big or how small would i have to build this enclosure to fit the car and the woofers meet their specs. if possible measurements and diagrams would be nice. Thank you in advance to everyone who replies. thank you

@supadave thanx for the reply, but I'm a noob at this, how would I go about making the box 3 cubes. What do I need to know before i start to build the box. For example what length height width would give me 3 cubes.

@supadave thanks, that cut sheet would be great if you can send it to me. That's going to be a nice box when it's finished. I was thinking of making a slot port in the middle (front) of the box. But I'm liking the idea of the aero ports. Why did you decide to go with aero ports instead of a slot port? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? And what kind of differences will it make on the box size?Thanks for your help.
