i'd highly suggest porting the SA 12
Also for box requirements give sundown a call or email and they will give you the specs you need then you can cut and build.

Ok I'll see what I can come up for you, is the Acura a sedan or hatchback? you gave 32 x 11.75 x 16.1 which measurement is the height? 11.75 or 16.1. If 11.75 is the height this will not be enough for a 12" woofer it will need to be at least 12.75". If the height is the 16.1 measurement then we will be fine. I'll design a vented enclosure for you, this will make the bass sound awesome especially for the music you listen to.

Google sketchup is a drawing program that can be used to draw the box and dimension it, once it's completed, that is, designed.

here is a typical example
