Default 2 HDC3 18s + Trunk Car= LOUD HELP PLZ

Im making a box for my dodge neon, I need help with the cu ft, alot of people are saying these subs require 5-6 cu ft per sub, whats the sweet spot as far as how big of a box for 2 18s and what frequency for spl and what frequency for everyday cruising. I have a MA Audio 4400 watt 2 ch amp pushing them, they are dual 1s wired at 1 ohm. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I would do 12 cubes. Is that amp true 4400w? It would be very hard to fit those in the trunk.

I've seen 8 cubes in the trunk of a neon. With 100% external port. NS's and a few other 18's do well in 4 cubes each FYI.

Speak in riddles, you do.

You do not have room for two 18s in the trunk of your Neon if you plan to have them on the same plane. Get a length of wood that is 36" long as see how many spots that will fit in your trunk. Then imagine an 8+ ft^3 box behind them. If you would like to get rid of your backseat and make a semi-wall it is very doable.
