Subwoofers differ in only one way. You get an "Open Air" and a "Closed air" subwoofer, That being said, you'll have to check on your magnet which one you have to make the boxes for that sub. If it is an "Open air" Subwoofer, you should see a "wire mesh" or "grid" in the centre, at the back of the magnet. If it is a "Closed air", the magnet will be solid with no hole whatsoever.
If it is a "Open air" sub, your boxes should be sealed with silicone, and no ports are to be cut in your box.
With "Closed air" subs, you should have 2 ports below your sub and the port sizes should be around 50mm in diameter. You should start with a 100mm long piece in the one box and add 50mm increments to "tune" the port up to 250mm, depending on the frequency of bass you require.
On a 15 inch subwoofer ranging between 80Hz and 120Hz, the box size required should be around 27 liters, meaning that you will end up with a box of 16 inches high, x 16 inches wide, x 16 inches deep. Or 320mm high, x 320mm wide, x 320mm deep.

Any type BOX will do...This ensures all the thump to be pushed forward to give all the sound from the speaker forward....enjoy. Alow enough room to get you hand in to wire easy and you should be good.

Ported and tuned to around 37-40 hertz. After all displacement the box should be in the 2.2 cubic foot for sub and you will be very impressed. Build it yourself for optimum sound and output.

Check the specs on your speakers and the amount of cubic space it needs to breathe and amount of porting required and then check the box to see if it meets that requirement otherwise if it doesn't it will sound like **** and be highly distorted.

I have been building custom enclosures since 1984. First of all I would need to know exactly what type of vehicle you were trying to install the enclosure into. You will need 8-10 cubic feet for this totally closure. I'm not too sure if you have enough room for this if it's going sometimes of small s_u_v you definitely have the room. I would use a 4 inch by pennington lane ports 1 in eating closure but you might even think about making to sebring closures and bringing them together because you're going to have a lot to flexing with that money into of what first. There again I need to know how much power you're driving to them as well and in what type of configuration you'll be connecting them. Good luck and hit me back up with any questions I will be glad to help thank you.
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if answer is helpful for your question. THANK you and GOD BLESS
