I just don't want to build the box & worry about making it pretty / the right airspace.

I am an adult also, and enjoy engineering my own solutions. As I was buying my components the shop warned me that a DIYselfer would probably not be able to build adequate boxes to house two 12's in the trunk of a mustang convertible. This is the kind of thing that gets me going, so now there is a challenge. Obviously for me wanting to install two 12W3's which each require a minimum of 1.2 ft^3, space in my trunk is not of concern. That said my solution would still allow for a decent weekend getaway for me and the wife. And honestly there is no need for two 12's, one would suffice which would give even more space. So last weekend i built two boxes for my '12 vert (they are about 1.27 ft^3 each), and with a JX1000 powering them, the sound is controllable from amazing to insane. here is what my boxes look like. Mind you I had them built and carpeted in one day. The rest of the amp / speaker install took another day.
