Way to be vague :p

I have a single 10" ported box I had in my '87 (that now is going in my '89).

Don't buy a sub box. build your own. They are ultra cheap and easy to make. Design it.

Buy a half sheet(4'x4') of 3/4" MDF from a Big Box Store (Home Depot or Lowes)

Have them cut it to your dimensions
Purchase a quick-disconnect port from ebay
purchase speaker box carpet
box of screws

$25-45 for everything, and you can make it custom to your vehicle and for your space requirements. also it's one more easy thing that you can point to and say "I did that!"

Here's a how to from crutchfield Crutchfield's how to build a sub box (http://www.crutchfield.com/S-BKFSyYz4EAi/learn/learningcenter/car/subwoofers/box_building.html)

I just bought a new 12" kappa perfect sub and i wanted to make a box for it since i can't find a similar shape box like i have now that will fit... Thanks :)

Well i bought a 10" 100.9w kappa sub from sonicelectronix about a week ago but its still on backorder :( after i finish this post important going to call to cancel it and buy it's bigger brother the 12" 120.9w kappa instead. If they don't have that in stock either important going to get it somewhere else. The original plan was to buy a 14x14x14 sealed box from sonicelectronix since its has 1cubic feet of internal space and both kappa subs im getting require that size but after measuring the available space in my all-trac that box is around 1/2" too tall and i can't close the rear hatch so im going to build a box. I did a little math and i think it was 13.5" tall and wide and 15" deep and it will just barely fit. I wanted to do a ported box since it would make the 17.5 xmax on these subs really shine but that requires a 1.5 cubic feet box :(

remember when calculating internal volume that you must subtract the volume of the driver itself. Otherwise your box will be undersized.
