Subwoofer noobie help

Hey guys,

Hopefully you can give me some help with my sub build.

I currently have a JBL CS10 mounted in my ski pass, this is temporary and I want to build a box but because my car is a convertible if I just but the box in the boot then you can barely hear it as the boot is kind of separated from the car, with it in the ski pass it is much better and pretty loud for what it is. However some songs sound great but others it sounds more distorted than anything else. Like Young Jeezy - Skys the limit, all I can really hear is a load of low bass and it's hard to make out any actual individual bass notes or kicks.

I like tight punchy bass rather than deep ground shaking bass. Like when I am in a club I love the sound of the speakers you can feel them hitting hard but it isn't just a ton of low bass overpowering everything and sounding unclear. Some songs I hear there is a low bass over everything and I can barely hear the kicks and thumps it's very muddy, I want this to be the other way round, I would rather not hear the low bass that much but be kicked in the back, I wouldn't mind both

So a few questions, I am going to build my box to poke into the ski pass with the rest of the box into the boot, will that effect anything, or is it just down to the overall box size?

What kind of size box would I be looking for when I want tight punchy clear sq bass?

I am thinking about getting a 10inch type r and a dm9601, will this give me what I am looking for?

Will building a box with my current sub give me better sound quality?
