box dimension questions?!?!

just have couple of questions im currently workin on a built for my 1958 chevrolet biscayne ( bel air same thing ) . i picked up when i was in the states 4 Pioneer 12" TS-W3002D4 for like 100 bucks all four was a sick deal , now i have a massive massive trunk to work with but dont wanna destroy all the room just with subs. now ive seen the specs and heard ppl say these are great subs , im use to sundown etc , my question was for four 12" in a nice ported box work at about 10.5 cu ft or even 12.5 cu ft tuned prob 37 hz or less sound possible. is it gonna sound good and is it big enough ( yes that is what she said ) . im lookin more towards i want something that sounds really loud not expecting huge numbers on the meter but more for show and just fun . also anyone who is lookin for some money on the side wanna built it for me let me know lol .

not my car but that is a general idea of it , 6 ppl can fit



and specs on overal width etc

Pioneer woofers do not need big enclosures, even in a vented application. You will not need an enclosure that is 10 cubes + to get big bass.

Did some research on your drivers you only need 1.6 cu.ft per driver in a vented enclosure. Then whatever you want your enclosure tuned to, you add that port volume to your enclosure size. The 1.6 cu.ft includes woofer displacement. Use a slot port style vent for your setup.

Yeah, "mainstream" brands like Pioneer don't work like that. 1.6cuft each is plenty.
