Without the T/S specs for the subs it is a guessing game to try and design a ported enclosure for any speaker.

1cuft each sealed will get them working......easy box to build and you can't go wrong playing 28hz test tones thru them if you feel like rattling your eyeballs out of their sockets.....

HTH

That is a starting point for the air volume required for each driver.....you can design the enclosure to look whatever way you like......

Oz made a couple of models of 10s so, as suggested, it is impossible to tell for sure what size enclosure you need since you can't tell us what driver you have. The suggestion of 4cuft sealed is probably a safe bet.

You didn't tell us what car you have either so how is someone supposed to suggest enclosure dimensions?

Its going into a 4dr 98 civic the only thing written on the sub is rr1004 and thats on the outter lip of the sub.

I got these dimensions after doing some research..they are supposed to equal 4 cuft, can anyone confirm this for me? 12.0 in. 19.0 in. 31.0 in

Measure your trunk or hatch, and decide how much space you want to give up, then let us know what the maximum dimensions are, height, width, depth. For a ported box we need thiel/small parameters such as; fs, vas, qts, etc... If you don't have those and can't find out what model the subs are, then I suggest you go with a sealed box as mentioned...most 10's can work quite well in boxes ranging from .7-1.2 cubic feet each. Unfortunately you don't know the model or specs, so it's a guess, though sealed systems are much more forgiving if the box is too big or a little small. 1 cube will work well, and in the unlikely event that it should be smaller or larger, the box can be adjusted by either placing foam blocks inside to take away volume or by adding polyester fibrefill to virtually increase volume. The box can be either all individual, one large common volume, or one large box divided internally into 4 segments (my preference as the drivers can operate properly should one or more stop working). There's your start, now go measure.
