Default Box for (4) 10s.. how to face subs? What subs?

So this is the design I came up with for (4) 10s in a sealed box. As of right now, I am gonna do either;

a) 3 subs firing up, 1 sub firing to the right.

or

b) 1 sub firing left, 1 sub firing to the right, 2 subs firing up.

Box will be sealed, for now. In box a), I may add an 8" aero to the right side. In box b), I may add an aero in the middle of the top 2 subs. (Hence why there are 5 holes in the box design)

So my question is, which do YOU think would be better in my 05 xB? I know some of you are gonna say "do both and let us know" but I don't want to, ha.

Lastly, sd10s, strato 10s, or sa10s? Amp is gonna be a 3kwp. Looking for 10s around $100 - $120 ea

first I must say, why put a sub on the side of the box? second you can do both with one box just flip it around. it's not like you guys actually try to install stuff and make it blend into the surrounding panels.

Id probably do 3 if you cant do it symmetrically. all 4 up, 2 up 2 back, or 2 to each side maybe not sure how that would work though. Probably best with 3 on a common baffle if thats the best you can fit.

I was lookin at doing 4 strato 10s but ended up getting 2 18s instead. I saw a vid on utube of 4 strato 10s in a single cab pickup doin a hairtrick on an apsm1500 I think.

Found the vid
Hairtrick with 4 Audio Technix Strato 10's - YouTube

4 Audiotechnix Strato 10's on a Audiopipe 1500- Single Cab LOUD! - YouTube

Why sealed?

Just to keep things in perspective, the port is right near the window.

Sealed.. no specific reason. Was talking to Terry and thought about trying sealed and using my xB's cabin as a "port" aka like a 4th.
