Default 2000+ Custom Box

I just got 2 new MBQuart 12s and want to build a custom enclosure to a sealed .9 - 1.0 cu ft and need some ideas on a layout for sub placement or design for the box. Does anyone out there have any pics or ideas to finish off my trunk????

Assuming you have good speakers like JL'* or Alpine R'* and assuming you want clean, loud thumping bass with about 300 clean rms watts driving them.

I would say a ported box if you want it loud, but you need to have it tuned to the fight freq.
