Alrighty guys. New Project Design. I need some help. Im trying to build a new box that will house a 8'' L7 and double as the arm rest and cupholders. Check out the designs.

the truck is a 98 for ranger std cab

Here are the sub specs.
Size (IN.,CM)         8, 20.32
Impedance (OHMS)         2 or 4 DVC
Max Rec Amplifier Power (WATTS PEAK/RMS)*         900/450
Sensitivity (dB 1w/1m)         83.6
Frequency Response (Hz)         28-100
Mounting Depth (IN.,CM)         4-3/4, 12.1
Mounting Cutout, Square (IN.,CM)         7-1/4, 18.4
Min Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters)         .33, 9.4
Max Rec Sealed Box Volume (CU. FT., Liters)         .75, 21.2
Min Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)**         .66, 18.6
Max Rec Vented Box Volume (CU. Ft., Liters)** 1.0, 28.3

Sealed box est. at .70 cu. ft. (wall thickness at .75'' using mdf)

Ported Box Idea (I have heard these respond well to ported enclosures)

With all that said this is my very first box ever. Not sure on the porting tuning and such. I dont know all the technical things involved with building an enclosure but i am willing to learn. I know how to wire up systems and tune with the way it sounds. I know that is bad but i normally have a friend of mine tune it if it needs to be tuned. Please dont get all aggressive with throwing technical words out there lol im in a very long learning curve here.

So, with help which way should i go? If i do a port what size (length width and depth) should i go. The 18x12 rectangle will be seperate from the cup holders. So it will be a rectangular box, and the front added on after. help away! ill be here reading and trying to understand!

My current setup:
pretty plain i know but it has done very well so far

i get .75 cu feet only factoring in wood thickness and NOT sub or prt displacment, I think dealed would be better,

if you could get anymore space ported would be best

well i measure where the console in it now stops and its 18". I can add another 5" atleast and take it to 23x9x12. I am just having troubles on how wide tall and deep i should make a port.
