You want to keep the same factory specs just make the box taller so you can fit the port on the bottom? That port is tuned to around 42hz.... Is this going in your SQ car? maybe something closer to 38hz??? Subs FS is 35.5hz so it doesn't leave a lot of room to play with.

Not sure if Jalat is already working on one for you, but as soon as I pickup the wife from work I'll design you something. Shouldn't take too long. Did you want to keep the higher port tuning. Or go a little lower? Wife's done at 7:00. Should have something for you by 8:00 ish.

Design is done, I'll sketch it up after I get home. Looks like external dimensions will be:

17H x 17.5W x 14.75D. Port will have same port area only a little longer. 16x1.5x 25.5 (mid 38hz tuning) Same internal volume.

Happy box building. 1.45 @ just about 38hz. Oops forgot to add the sub hole dimension. It's 9 1/8" centered. ENJOY. Rounding port edges will help reduce port noise.
