Default Ported boxes in a 370z?

I dont own a 370z or on the board as much as many people here probably are but I only really see the sealed boxes. I realize there isnt a whole lot of space but im curious if anyone has done one, and pics, specs, feedback

Thanks

I have a ported box - but it takes up the entire hatchback area. Pics are in my profile.

Where did you install your ported sub box in your 370Z?

I would recommend just going with sealed. A single 12 is massively loud in a z and a ported box is going to want a lot of space.

Default Two 8's

This is my ported box with 2 8's... which turned out alot louder than i expected. When i get some time off i'll end up doing a fiberglass mold of the hollow area between the seets and the wheel wells... there is a bout .8 CF of air there and to port the two W3's you only need .7

I'd prefer to have ported boxes to sealed, but in the Z especially a DD Z, you'll sacrifice your already precious cargo space...

Ported boxes, especially large ported boxes are cool and a lot of fun but the Z is the wrong car for that. A single 12 or 13 in small sealed enclosure is much more practical and will rape your ears! especially a 13!

I was generalizing as I was imagining a large suitcase sized box with 2 12's pointing straight up.

BTW, your system is nice and I bet its loud! I would however miss the trunk space dearly. I have gone the stealth approach to where my box and sub is completly invisible.
