For slot ported, the simplest way is probably to use the " RE enclosure calculator." It gives you the measurments for the cuts etc.. Very easy to use.

Sealed? Don't bother

It has a flat response in 1.2 cubes sealed. It models a lot nicer than other subs in a sealed box.

Ported, do 2-2.5 cubes @ 35 Hz. People say you don't have to tune them low because they get low enough with the crazy xmax. They don't need huge boxes, but stay to within 2 cubes minimum.

Don't use the RE calculator, it's horribly inaccurate. It's nice for cut-outs though.

Give me your maximum useable dimensions. Make sure it'll fit into the car, through the door or trunk etc.

I had a 15" XXX and I was only going to be playing music.. Then I bought something that would play music. Worst sub I have ever owned.
